There's probably a good reason why 13 teams passed over him. I don't think scouts are stupid.

Then again, he was the 4th forward taken, so that's still damn good when you consider the other 3 were Yakupov, Galchenyuk and Forsberg.

However acting like every scout who passed over Grigorenko is an imbecile and that you know better is getting tiresome.

I've had the pleasure of following Grigorenko in the playoffs, and to the fan who said he has a great playoffs, no he didn't, he was invisible for the better part of the playoffs. He did have injuries and mono, so I won't put him down for that. But don't start making things up to skew reality.
No one in this thread is calling any scout an imbecile or that they "know better" than pro scouts/GM's.
