Grigs gave up to play KHL... and now he must play junior hockey instead of senior one.

he played horrible summer series against Canada. Everybody knows it
Fact that Kuznetsov is a star and Grigorenko is a junior player says nothing because they are 20 and 18 years old. If Grigs stayed he would play in MHL or 5-8 minutes a game in KHL. As of now, he can play 25 minutes a game in QMJHL which is never a bad thing for 18 year old. There is no NHL for a few months or so, it's not like his career is over because NHL is no more. Frankly, I don't think he's NHL ready anyway.

To put it simply, what's the problem with playing junior hockey when you are 18? One more season in QMJHL can only do him good.
