Then again, Grigorenko went 12th, when he was rated in the top 5.
His skating is an issue. I'd be far happier if for once we could pick a 1st rounder who doesn't need to improve past that. Our team always seems to wind up at that point, picking the guy with big positives but some sort of critical flaw to their game. Give me MacKinnon or Jones who have none.
