Honestly, they can't afford to lose a center who can play plus defense, assuming he can continue to do that. If they send Grigorenko down they better bring in another center. Sample size and all but he's at something like 56% on his faceoffs. If he can manage to stay even a bit over 50% over the course of the season then that is another thing the team can't afford to lose. Unless he starts slipping a lot defensively I really think they'd be foolish to not keep him up.
