Organizationally, top-end talent on the wing is scarce. I'd imagine Buffalo would be interested (in 363 days
) in a winger that has already played with Grigorenko.
He looks like he's bigger than that now; at least 6'.
The weight is an issue, but he's been working out with former Lac Saint-Louis teammate Jonathan Drouin for about a month now, which is good news for both as they are underweight.
He does play a power game and isn't afraid to go into dirty areas to get the puck, even at that size.
If he gets bigger like I expect him to, he should be a force with his size and skill.
And yeah, he played on Grigorenko's wing for most of the season.
He started out with a kid I mentioned last year that could be an interesting free agent, Mike McNamee (ended up doing just okay), but injuries hit and he stuck with Grigo and Roy.
