That's the million dollar question when it comes to Grigorenko, when did he get it and how much did it effect his play? Let's not forget that there were serious questions around Couture in his draft year that stemmed from him getting Mono, and it lead to him being there at #9. Would people seriously take even half the names that went before him over him right now? Only one I would really consider there is Kane.

I'm not saying Grigorenko is going to turn out just like that. But if I were a betting man, I'd bet that if someone gets Grigorenko any time after the #5 pick they're going to be laughing all the way to the bank a couple years later.

and FWIW I'd absolutely LOVE it if the Canes are able to land Kosmachuk at 47.
