Now, in the likely scenario that we DO take Murray (and ignore Forsberg and Galchenyuk altogether), then I want us to get an other 1st round pick somehow and draft Gaunce or an other big centerman.
MacKinnon makes things happen with his constant work ethic/drive, grit and speed. I didn't see that in Grigorenko tonight and I spoke to a scout at the game who told me he's never seen Grigs beat anyone to the outside all year. I've had multiple viewings of MacKinnon but tonight was the first time I've seen Grigs in person. I'll comment again after I see him in Game 2. He showed me some great dangles and he's good with the puck but he didn't do anything to convince me he has the drive/will or skating to be great.
