I actually liked Girgensons at 8 especially after trading Staal. I think he can be a Backes type player. Only good offensively but one of those players you go to war with.

Love the sense and skill on Grigs but I think his game is at center and moving him to wing would just lessen him. He's not a 3rd line type at all so he's just a bad fit for the Pens. I don't think he has compete level issues at all. He's just a smart skilled player that plays the slow down game.
That's where he's been playing in Rochester, on the wing. Or are you talking about Grigorenko?
