Different player and situation. Edmonton is a team full of young guys and they don't have any expectations, plus everyone knew Yakupov was NHL ready right away and I'd say it's easier coming in as a young winger compared to a center. I'd compare Grigorenko more to Galchenyuk's situation in Montreal, another 18 year old center on a 5 game trial. I personally haven't watched much of him over there so don't know how he's doing.
