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.
Agreed. The only play that makes me hesitate a little bit was a developing 2-on-1 where Grigo passed the puck WAY too soon and it was easily broken up.
He needs to take that more to the net and then decide pass or shoot -- showed me that he's lacking confidence.
But otherwise, I see nothing to suggest that he should be sent down.
