Just to be clear: I don't think anyone wanted Grigorenko to drop. He just happened to drop because some character issues were brought up.
I'm just saying some middling defensemen started looking more attractive after the top of the forward class (minus Galchenyuk and Yakupov) took a hit.
For example, if a few teams had Teravainen in their Top-5 (what I heard), and he ends up 18, either those teams made egregious scouting mistakes or some teams misevaluated the Ds (what I think). All those teams had a pair of Ds they really liked (but those 2 Ds were different from team to team). Everyone can't be right.
