Huberdeau or Grigorenko

I read this scenario on some site this morning. I forget where but the idea intrigued me.

This based upon a number of assumptions.

1) The Canadiens get 2nd pick overall this June.

2) Grigorenko isn't picked 1st overall.

3) The Canadiens GM succeeds in convincing the Panthers GM to make the above trade on a one for one basis.


I'm aware that many opinions about Grigorenko say that he's an outstanding prospect (by some even the best in this year's crop) but, nevertheless I believe that there are risks in picking him (Russian factor, Zherdev, etc.)

On the other hand, Huberdeau has shown some very good stuff but, still, a risk remains. He's considered an 8.5C on hockeysfuture so that's pretty good but still shows the possibility of ending up with a second line player.

So, for me, it's a toss-up, with a bit of a lean towards Huberdeau.

Grigorenko easily.

Huberdeau would not have been much of a factor this year IMO.
Grigo will be.

9.0 c > 8.5c

Where do you get the 9.0 C?

Huberdeau's rating isn't based upon the opinion of one person. I don't know but I can't believe that the 8.5 is based solely on the opinion of the writer for the Panthers. There has to be some sort of 'team work' to get that and to put him 10th best in their top prospects list. On top of that, Huberdeau's described as having an elite skillset.

I am baffled at this poll.

Grigs times a hundred thousand millions.

You're probably right but, still, I have reservations about picking a Russian so high regardless of their perceived talent level.

If we have the second overall, Grigo. After Yakupov and Grigorenko though, I'd rather Huberdeau over the rest of this draft.

I'd take Huberdeau for our first right now. If we drop to 29th overall...I'd do the same!

Huberdeau > Grigorenko.

As far as I'm concerned

Huberdeau is much better than trading our 1st for an overpaid vet.
Keeping our 1st is much better than trading our 1st for an overpaid vet.

Please: no over-the-hill flotsam from other GMs.

Unless they've soured on Huberdeau for some reason, I don't see the Panthers making this trade. The two players are close enough that you might as well stick with the one you know, who is already developing well in your organization.

I think you miss understand their rating system...a 10 is a Bobby Orr or Gretzky...an 8.5 is a first line forward not a second line player

Huberdeau. No question. He's canadian. and being in montreal, i guess he sorta gets bonus points for being french-canadian. I would love to have this guy on the habs. Not some ****ing heartless russian who's just gunna bolt or fold when he can't handle this league.
