With Grachev too, at least to me, it was the way he was scoring. He was a highlight machine. It wasn't like he was just parking in the crease for garbage goals they way a lot of big guys seem to do in the OHL. At times he looked like the Ovechkin* of the OHL with the shot and hands he had.

In hindsight playing with Duchene and Hodgson definitely opened up a lot of space for him. Space he had difficulty creating on his own at higher levels due to foot speed issues and not being able to read the play well enough.

*To clarify: Not how Ovie would have looked if he played in the OHL. Obviously. Talking in terms of style at that level.
