I remember watching a few games in October-November last year and was convinced he'd go #2 and then everything just fell apart.
He comes and goes. In order for him to dominate games more, he'll need to be a bit more intense in the corners and work on his foot speed.
One thing I can say, however, is that even in his so-so games thus far, he does create scoring opportunities out of nowhere. His vision and ability to make tape-to-tape passes is definitely as good as any other drafted prospect as far as I'm concerned.
I see a lot of Kopitar in Grigorenko. If he fills out his body and gets that added intensity, he could very well be the same player. The vision is there, he has a good shot and he has displayed a very good two-way game in his first four games, positioning is definitely not a problem with this guy.
