How do you guys see his production 5 years down the road?
If he recovers from the injuries(i.e. pre-accident form), 65-70 points a year is about what he'll get.
I hope he returns to form, I've had him in a pool for a few years now.
I would agree that 70 points would probubly be his top upside. He needs another
year in RSL before challenging for a job in Det. I have not heard any reason why
he would'nt be able to return to form.
I hope he pans out for Detroit, I like the type of players they have been drafting. the youth looks strong.
He is pointless in his first 9 games this season, I think. That has to be worrisome.
I can't see him hitting 70, mabey 50 points with alot of grit and PIM's and a big time contributor in many ways not just on the scoreboard.
thats probably more realistic i stand corrected
imo pre-accident Grigorenko would be capable to be almost ppg. but now seems his legs are not the same.
i think that this year will tell the story as to if he can regain his form, i don't
believe we are seeing heatleys pre accident form yet either
Seems that way. Even his coach said that he looked heavier on his skates. But then again keep in mind he hasn't skated much at all the past year and a half. Once/if he gets his legs back he could be a force in the NHL.
He scored his first goal today.
Give the kid some time. It's going to take some time to get back to his previous form. Maybe the whole first half or year. It's great to see him finally get one though.
