Buffalo will end up having to overpay him due to his stats and it will be his bloated contract that will prevent his team from picking up the assets that they will require. IMO Grigorenko actually has a negative value because he will turn out to be an expensive piece that can't be translated into playoff success.

Collberg doesn't shy away from the dirty areas of the ice and has the skating and shooting abilities to be a difference maker.

People on this site are sometimes too buried in fanboy land or fantasy stats to truly recognize what it takes to build a winner. Bergevin was very clear in that he wants skill players but they also have to be character players. This was music to my ears and is the reason why he didn't sniff around a piece of garbage like Semin. Collberg has the intangibles of a winner which likely means that he will be a contributing factor of some sort to the resurgence of this franchise.

The Montreal Canadiens are supposed to win Stanley Cups.......]not entertain the immature fanboys looking to make a ridiculous youtube compilation of their favourite dekes.

How many games did you watch Grigorenko play this year?
