Toews can put up 70 points, and be considered a franchise player. If Grigorenko puts up 70 points, he'd be considered a below average first-line Centre. Kinda like when Ribeiro puts up those types of numbers, but nobody considers him to be a franchise player.
So for Grigs to be considered a franchise player, he either needs to greatly round out his game, or he needs to be putting up some phenomenal numbers, 80+ points on a consistent basis.
Faksa on the other hand is more of a steady prospect. Good two-way game, questionable high-end skill. But if he only puts up 50 points a season, he could still become a pretty valuable piece. Grigorenko putting up 50 points? Pretty useless player (barring improved defensive/physical play).
Where are you getting this scouting report?
Vaive and Ludzik on collapse, and Phaneuf.
