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.
