And for the record, Samsonov had a pretty decent career. Much better than the Canadian forwards drafted before and after him, Daniel Tkaczuk and Jason Ward.
similarities being questionable work ethic, compete level, adaptability to nhl game.

those were brought up about grigs.

fans fall in love with a player's max upside at the draft, but often ignore important things like commitment and work ethic.

we can all agree that even tavares wouldn't have gotten by on talent alone. like we see with filatov, kadri, and many others. Grigorenko scares me.
