I'd rather keep Grigorenko at this point. Especially with no guarantee that Getzlaf signs.

With the added cap space we can add someone like Perry, Iginla, Morrow or Clowe who are all UFA next year.

Even on the low end I think we are better off with Grigorenko, Clowe, ~$3 million in cap space and the other pieces we wouldn't have to add then just Getzlaf.

Then again I'm sky high on Grigorenko. Two months into last season when we were at the bottom of the conference I was all over him as the guy I wanted with our potential top 5 pick and am still shocked he dropped to us.

I also don't get why all the Buffalo fans are still looking for a center right now. Hodgson is at over a point per game level in Rochester, Grigorenko has been arguably the best center in juniors, and when Ennis was healthy centering Foligno and Stafford it was the best line we iced all year. I think its a no brainer to give the kids we have a chance before bringing anyone else in.
