I have seen them both a fair bit and it's really hard to judge from 2 Youtube videos. I would say they have equal stick handling. Galchenyuk got more compete and a better shot while Grigo is a little bigger and faster, don't be too surprised if Grigo steals Hodgson first line duty at some point this year if he makes the Sabres. (This talks more about Hodgson than Grigo...) Grigorenko was just the perfect player for the Sabres to get and the Sabres will make him look like a great pick because they have good wingers. I'll also venture to say that Grigo can play center in the NHL faster than Galchenyuk can because he can "brute force" it, this however is not a prediction of who is going to have the best career at all.
