I've been for drafting Grigorenko all long but I now recognize that the team cannot draft him with the 3rd overall pick when players like Galchenyuk and Forsberg might still be available. Would Grigorenko hava had good series, I think the choice would be much more difficult for Timmins. However, I still think Grigorenko will be a quality player at the NHL level.
Now, if Glachenyuk's knee is 100% healthy, the team CANNOT pass on him. I was very impressed by his will and his character at the combine. I believe his work ethic and his will will allow him to overcome the effects of this lost season of development over the next few years.
