I've watched quite a bit of those top 3 picks this year, but JFB would probably still have more insight as well as the rest of the draft.
I've seen Yakopov and he's fit in well on a team stacked with multiple #1's. I thought folks said Grigs was rated a lot higher at the beginning of the season and fell off because of injury's/illness.

Clearly, Grigs isn't ready. I can't fathom how Sabres mgmt kept him if they had any inkling of this during the abbrieviated camp and 1st 5 games.

You made my point on Alex and Yaks. They're surrounded by talent. I just want to keep my feet on the ground if we do land one of the latest bunch of 18 yrs. olds..
