Sabres management has no reason to decide right now if Grigs is ready to play in the NHL for the entire season. The fact of the matter is that he showed enough in training camp to earn a 5-game tryout, that's all.

It would be silly of the team not to take advantage of the 5-game window to see how he fares against NHL competition, especially after he's shown in training camp that he's not completely overmatched and has a chance to make an impact.

For those who say he's not ready, doesn't have the compete level, or won't be able to handle the physicality, his 5-game tryout should make this abundantly clear one way or another. Why not see how he looks for his first 5 games, and if he sticks or not, then we decide whether the Sabres are making the right or wrong decision.
Perfectly said. It's like a race around here to be the first to blame someone. Like it matters. The national media is the same way.
