He wasn't necessarily bad in the 2nd game Fulcrum. So much you can do with Paul Bissonette ice time.

Ok well, I still haven't seen this dominant Grigorenko for U20 yet. Which is fair in a way since its tougher competition, but he looked better with his U18 year for NT, that is all.

For me he played good the first game, and I though he was dominant at last years SSS. Also had good few games before he got injured at WJC.

Grigs with a Hat Trick tonight against Sherbrooke. He is up to 23 goals, 20 Assists for 43 points in 23 games. I am really surprised he has more goals then assists. He actually leads the Q in goals.

11 shots tonight...

He's learning that he's way more dangerous when he doesn't always look for the pass.

Awesome. He could have had 4 goals if not for an amazing save by the goalie. I was really impressed by that first goal.

That gpg pace is pretty impressive. For all the flak Grigs was getting around draft time, he deserves more props for his play this season. At this early stage of the season it looks like he belonged in the top 5 afterall. Personally I never had a strong opinion for or against him due to limited viewing, but I do admit that Button and Bobby Mac saying he was dropping out of the top 10 did make me somewhat of a skeptic...that combined with some minimal viewings of him while he may have been playing with an injury and mono...in hindsight he prolly deserved his stock to go up not down for playing through that. I wouldn't call it a stretch to say that his game could translate better to the NHL than Yakupov's.

Here's my article on him before the draft..about the time he was starting to get criticized by everybody. Rumors starting to come up about his age, dedication to the game,etc.

That is a beautifully written article that explains why exactly his draft stock fell so drastically after being considered for 1st overall a few months before the draft took place. Ever since being drafted by the Sabres he has been everything that you posted and more. He spent the entire summer here working out with fellow line mates, took part in the Sabres development camp with the Marines along the lakeshore, and has been lighting up the Q averaging close to 2 ppg through 23 games. Thanks for that article.

Love the fact that the Sabres stole Grigorenko at 12. I'm a big fan of his game and he's going to be a very good center for a very long time. Tomas Vanek is going to love being a winger for this guy. Grigorenko's dropping is eerily similar to that of Sean Couturier last year. Buffalo fans are going to be laughing all the way to the bank in a few years when Grigorenko and Girgensons are playing. They're going to be a nightmare to play against.

That "scout" was actually Craig Button. He's probably the biggest idiot TSN has on their hockey coverage. There's a reason why he's no longer a GM in the NHL. Look at every one of his moves he made as GM of the Calgary Flames and it's very easy to see why he got canned. Perhaps the biggest windbag there is with regards to scouting prospects.

Grigorenko has significantly better Offensive abilities relative to Couturier. Couturier fell for very different reasons. Despite people claiming Couturier shouldn't have fallen that far, i think it is reasonable to suggest all those taken above can still end up better players. Likewise with Grigorenko, although i do feel he along with Yakupov/Galchenyuk were comfortably the best forwards available last year.

I agree with this .... except, didn´t Button draft Iginla with the Stars? That would be my only problem with this statement.

Grigorenko has all the tools.

Wasn't Risebrough the Flames' GM back then, and Paul McIntosh in charge of scouting?

Wow. Talk about harsh.

Personally, I think it's pretty evident that Button knows what he's talking about.

Here is a guy who travels to watch hockey so he can bring scouting reports to you for a living.

When he evaluates a player, I guarantee his evaluations are based on relatively orthodox methods (although there is surely variation from scout to scout within details of what's looked for) commonly utilized by scouts everywhere.

You don't become an NHL GM or a scout by being a "windbag".

What you're really saying to everyone is your judgements based upon what you read on HF Boards or by watching the players years down the roads and looking back at how "wrong" he was (unfortunately, scouts don't have the privilege of gazing into a crystal ball) is a much more trustworthy method of evaluation than anything Button offers.

You´re probably right. I just thought that Button was Director of Scouting for the Dallas Stars (who drafted Iggy) at that point in time. Splitting hairs though .... cause Buttons draft record with the Flames was abysmal.

Sorry for getting off topic

I could be wrong but didn't Couturier's play and draft position drop because of mono as well?

He did, but he was also the victim of just being in the spotlight a bit too long and having people starting to nitpick at his game.

In any case, I'm really glad Grigs fell to us at 12 for whatever reasons. Buffalo desperately needed a big center with first line talent.

Craig Button puts out some brutal scouting lists. Look at his 2012 final list

Golden oppurtunity for a #1 center missed by Burke and company

Sadly, never felt he was really on Burke's radar.

A little early to be laughing at his list, no? If we look at the actual draft order in a few years from now then even that will be laughable...

Then again, Button may have been the biggest culprit (windbag) in lowering Grigorenko's stock, who is making Button look foolish at this early stage.

He's not a Burke type player.

I'm very excited for his potential. Luke Adam played like an all star between Vanek and Pommer, if Grigs gets the same opportunity and develops some chemistry with them. Him dishing those passes to Vanek could be a good combination.
