Hopefully Grigorenko can do something to keep his place on the roster until the end of the season, he will learn a lot more getting games under his belt in the NHL than playing juniors.

Instead of going back to Quebec I would rather see him go on some sort of loan deal to the KHL and play against men. I guess with the KHL heading into the play offs it will be difficult for him to find a team but I see no point in him playing with Juniors when he really has nothing more to learn. The Russian Stars in the NHL all spent at least three seasons playing in Russia against men and became leaders before moving to the NHL. Of course they had a different development pathway to the NHL (Did not play in the CHL) so it is difficult to compare but I think you understand the point I am making.
