Galchenyuk has been very underwhelming since being drafted though, while Rielly has been a great performer at the Can/Rus challenge, was impressive at our prospects camp and prompted coaches to say he might be ready to go this year..and would have definitely challenged for a job in the main camp.
The one player that got trashed last year...is off to a flyer though. Mikhail Grigorenko. I think he'll be a #1C or be very close to it. Every time I see him play he reminds me of Jason Spezza.
Agree 100% in the bolded.
However still not sold on Grigs, he is showing a pattern here of playing well when the competition is easiest. Not so much when it isn't. Not sure I like the pattern but we will see.
