Let's temper our expectations - we're not getting Gretzky with this pick. Look at some of the most recent 3rd overalls - Horton, Barker, Toews, Bouwmeester, Bogosian, Duchene, J. Johnson...all good players (and one star) but no world-beaters.
Even comparing him to Kovalev is a compliment, Kovalev was more willing to battle and pay the price than Grigorenko has done so far, both then to not show up for periuods of time.
