So, for those defending Grigorenko and Galchenyuk.

Grigorenko = Spezza type, doesn't initiate contact but protects the puck well, has amazing vision and a good acurate shot, needs a true finisher to reach full potential, can be a 100pt player

Galchenyuk = Toews type, good playmaking, great shot, gritty, high hockey IQ team oriented, capable of playing many different roles, Can be 80-90 pt player, with leadership qualities.

Both would need another year in Juniors, but both would make excellent NHLers.
Either are good choices at #3. But, I personally would lean to Galchenyuk, as he is more in the mold of what I feel we need in Montreal. Grigorenko is also an excellent choice. I watched him this year (especially in the 2nd round) and he was "off" but was still able to contribute something.
