Besides, Lindy likes to roll 3 lines with scoring punch (as is shown in my projected set). If Grigs makes the team (which I think he will in 2013/14), I think Lindy won't be dumb enough to not give him a solid NHL scoring option.

And you're also assuming what everyone expects. I think Grigorenko makes the team, is given a winger that can score and he WILL struggle at points. I'm not expecting 100 point season out of him. I'd be perfectly happy with 40-50 and showing glimpses.
I think he has a pretty good chance, absolutely not a lock. Everything else I said is pretty clear. Try not reading into what's not written

As far as benchmarks (points). Yea, if he makes it, 40-50 points would be a fair and not overwhelming goal. For me, if he makes the team, as long as you can see him develop (in a good way) over the course of an entire season it would be good. But there are some who love to look at players on a game by game basis and say he overall rules or overall sucks as a player.
