I assume it will take him 1-2 games to get used to everything but he's so talented so it shouldn't take to long.
He just tweeted:

on 25 October

Quebec has a home game against Baie-Comeau that night.

Mostly speculation..

I know Edmonton brought in Yakupov, Reinhart, Grigorenko, and Murray for the #1 overall but had Reinhart more for a trade down scenario. I believe that he was #3 on their list.
I am quite confident from listening to Devine that Buffalo had Yakupov, Galchenyuk, Murray, Grigorenko, and Forsberg in their top 5.
Washington appartenly never had him ranked in the entire draft
I also believe that Montreal had him in the top 5

Again mostly speculation

I think he would have made the sabres this year and would have been in their top 6.

Eventually he is going to be their number 1 center and a steal for years to come. Buffalo did a great job this past draft and i hope their gamble pays off.

I thought mono was just a joke by quebec fans when Halifax fans questioned his play and thought he would play the injury card He actually had mono?

Grigorenko's 6-11-17 thru his first 8gp is pretty hot. Jerome Gauthier-Leduc's 8-10-18 in his first 8gp last year was also pretty hot.

Is that among drafted players? Drouin has a higher PPG, so is he #1?

I think his attitude is just fine and Roy doesn't seem to have any problems with his work ethic.
He's said he wishes he was a bit more consistent in practices sometimes, but that's about it.

Yes, he actually had mono and had medical records at the draft to prove it.

I doubt he would have missed the NHL combines just to let the joke run...

He was one of 5 prospects that met with management in Edmonton IIRC. I was really hoping that we would've been able to trade up and nab him along with Nail, if they had him 3rd they had the same intentions but just couldn't get the job done.

He could be. Don't really know where he got the list but Baker is first class in his reporting.

I think his list was reffering to him being tied with Drouin with 2.1 PPG, doesnt matter to me though because they will both be sabres soon

Hmmm, maybe. I can see Drouin in Sabres jerseys. Sabres could use a slick skilled forward? Grigs Drouin and Pommer sounds pretty good.

Not sure if serious???

Personally, I doubt Burke had Grigs in their top 5. Actually, I wonder if Yakupov was on Burke's top 5.

Grigs has a lazy looking skating stride, he may not be as lazy as some make him out to be...but that skating style of his makes it look worse. Similar things were said of Sundin's stride when he was younger, it's not an uncommin observation on the taller players.
