I'll make his over/under for NHL points this year as 5.

Any fear of Grachev bolting for the KHL?

Excellent point you bring up. I was thinking the same thing, especially when I was reading about him missing the last day of prospects camp when it was going on. God, I hope it's not a 'bad' concussion. Especially because it would mean the effects have (presumably) been lingering since the end of his OHL playoffs.

watching him play makes me very jealous as a Bruins fan and I hope he plays out his career in the NHL...I noticed him first during the World Juniors and thought he was their best player in that tournament and obviously he was dominant in the OHL...as much as I love the Bruins, I am excited for the Rangers future with what Grachev, Anisimov and Kreider up front and what is the best defensive prospects in the league by far in McDonagh, Del Zotto, Sanguinetti and Sauer, not to mention Staal and Gilroy who are still developing...

If he still had concussion symptoms, they wouldn't have let him on the ice during prospect camp. He probably pulled something and is rehabbing it.

If he's not on the ice when the Rangers open camp, then we can start to worry.

I really doubt he makes the Rangers this year, maybe next year though.

I think he's gonna be very very good though when he hits his prime. I won't overstate anything, but I'm very excited for this guy.

They do?

A 19 year old in the AHL is being brought along slowly?
