Possibly just my opinion, but if he's still there at #9, I think you really have to consider taking him. He has fantastic skill, and very good size. He fits a need that the team has and will have over the next couple of years, which is centre. Faksa may have a better overall game, or better character, or ??, but I believe he lacks Grigorenko's skill level.

It's possible that he doesn't meet some of TNSE's requirements in certain areas, but talent level wouldn't be one of them, IMHO.

That said, I would also be happy with Faksa at #9, if he's there - seems like a very well rounded player. Was always impressed with his offense AND defense when I watched Rangers games.
