I wouldn't be so quick to conclude that Grigorenko would crack a deep squad like the Sabres. Depends which version of him shows up. He has looked like the prospect as he was touted as. I still have fresh memories of his disappearing act in the last Canada Russia series.

As for McKinnon he looks strong and fast. Not as comfortable as I think he should be. That missed drop pass was an obvious error or piece of miscommunication with his new line mates. Looks dangerous though.

I also thought Ouellet looked really good and the only bright spot on the Q's backend.
