Zherdev, in his prime, was an extremely effective offensive player. He was a 60+ pt player on low scoring teams. Give him a bit more support and he's easily a PPG player.

The guy was a super skilled player. Hands, shot, vision, speed. If he was ever used effectively or if he could have figured out how to play both sides of the ice he would have been an extremely effective NHLer, as I expect Grigorenko to be.

Also, if Grigorenko ends up being a consistent 30+ goal, 60+ pt player, that wouldn't be bad at all. Not every prospect is Evgeni Malkin.
