10 Points in 6 Games, with one shoot out goal. Haven't seem him play, so I can't comment on anything but what the stats say. Excited to seem him in the NHL if he can translate his game there.

Have the ramparts decided which Russian will be traded? (or have they already traded one?)

Shy away from physical contacts (particularly on breakouts) and tries passes that are just not there. If he wants to make the NHL, he will definitely needs to correct these.

Oops thought it was only 3 Russian imports they had. Are they going to keep all 6 then, or rotate them 2 a night?

It was a joke.

2 Russians (Kucherov, Grigorenko)
1 Swede (Sorensen)
1 Dane (Sorensen who has double citizenship, Born in Danemark, Lived in Sweden)
1 French (Axel Rioux, Double citizenship Canada-France)
1 Swiss (Pierre-Maxime Poudrier, Double citizenship, Canada-Switzerland)

Since Rioux and Poudrier also have the Canadian citizenship, they're not considered as euros.

Q insider Stéphane Leroux said that Kucherov is the one on his way out of Québec and not Sorensen.

Can't imagine what team he would go to being a Euro and a 93.

may be Kucherov comes back home? I sure hope so, THK has got a spot warm for him, as his bud Gusev headed to Amur.

Roy responded to this rumor:

Quote:
"I have not drafted a European (Nikita Kucherov) to trade him after and we will dip into the candy bowl before others, warned Patrick Roy. If at the end, we have to move one, we'll move, but as we speak, Buffalo tells us there is a 50% chance that Grigorenko returns and this is too high a risk for us.

"In addition, a draft pick won't help me, I'm in no hurry. If someone gives me a (player) equivalent, I'll think about it, but I don't think I'll receive the equivalent. "
http://www.journaldequebec.com/2012/...er-un-europeen

Although, I wouldn't be surprise, Kucherov hasn't been good so far and he's soft, unlike Sorensen.

Is it he's not adapting well to the N.A. game or is it an attitude problem? Simon Larouche of hockeyprospect had tweeted last night he was lazy. If it's his inability to transition to a new way of playing, is that not to be expected of him this early in his time playing in the Q?

No.

Grigorenko and him weren't playing well together. They got separated and I thought he was starting to get better.

I'd say it is more about learning a new system and getting comfortable on a smaller ice. He also mentionned how the game was much faster than what he was used to. I don't think that's lazyness.

Sorensen will stay in the lineup from now on so Kucherov will be the odd man out until further notice.

Sorensen is a more complete player.

Horrible management; why even bring him over then?

In case there is no lock out and Grigorenko ends up playing in the NHL?

Patrick isn't a bad manager, he knows what he's doing.

Because he never thought there would be a lock out. Grigorenko wasn't supposed to be there.

I'd see him traded to Blainville-Boisbriand. They already have plenty of grit, they need talent.

Yeah I understand that, but never was it certain he'd make the NHL.

But any way, it is a developmental league, they should trade him cause the kid needs to play.

There was no certainty Grigorenko would have made the NHL but without a lock out, Roy would have known what to do wether or not Grigs makes the NHL. The moment Buffalo sends Grigorenko back to Quebec, Roy has 14 days to trade one of the three. As long as Buffalo doesn't confirm Grigorenko will stay in Quebec even if the lock out ends, Roy can't be 100% sure he'll be back.

I know it's in the best interest of the Remparts to keep all 3 for the time being. However I don't think is in the best interest of the players development to be scratched. He should be playing . I just wished they would trade him, that's all.

Probably.. Roy wins in the short run, but is digging a deep long run whole. Especially with competition from Larionov over in the OHL, kiss the top Russians goodbye in Quebec City if this drags out.
