He'll have 3 head coaches before hes been in the NHL for a calendar year.
A similar thing happened to a guy by the name of Steven Stamkos. Melrose practically buried him and he only had 4 pts in 17 games, before interim coach Rick Tocchet came in. I'm not saying that Grigs will end up being a Stamkos, but him being in the NHL is a good thing because it allows him to slowly develop his game at the top level. He really has nothing left to prove in the QMJHL. Grigs seems mature enough to be able to handle the reduced minutes and slowly develop his game. He'll be a star in this league soon enough.
