He is going where the $$$ is and I don't really blame him. However, all I pointed out was that Yakupov is in Russia while Grigorenko is in North America... yet no one says anything. If the opposite was true and Grigs went to the KHL while Yakupov stayed at Sarnia....everyone would be like "I told you so! Grigorenko doesn't have the heart! Grigorenko only cares about money! This is why he fell in the draft!".
I don't remember anyone ever saying Grigorenko only cares about money...

However, Yakupov is playing a mans league, which is good for his development, but either way, he's got a ELC.

Also, we've seen players tear up the CHL at age 19 and get a lot of hype doing so and have trouble playing in the AHL let alone the NHL.
