Im loving what Im hearing about the BIG Griff...
Griff reminds me of Nino in the sense that next year he will dominate juniors as a 19 year old and might not be quite ready for the NHL.
I wish there could be atleast one exception to the age rule with the AHL...Nino would have been served better if he were allow to play there last year....Griffen is already physically mature for his age and imho another year in junior wont hurt but the AHL offers a closer look at what the NHL is.
Anyway at draft time I wanted Murray Galy or Grigorenko. But I am Thrilled so far with the Griff pick and he is just what the Doctor Ordered for the Isles...If he reaches close to his potential a
Reinhart-Hamonic pair could be scary in the future....
