    Hopefully not declaring this too premature, but lots of reports of these two leaving the building, and reports of Grigs going back for sure...

    For now, it's speculation..

    It also sucks that Girgorenko won't even play in Quebec, he is going to move again to a new team because of the import rule

    Can report the Sabres have made a call to Quebec coach about Grigorenko, but no official word on whether he is getting sent there. (1/2)

    John Vogl ‏@BuffNewsVogl 3m
    Quebec already has maximum of two imports, so Remparts would have 14 days to trade Grigorenko or one of other two (whom they like). (2/2)

    I'm curious if they can do a paper transaction to send him to Quebec while Boucher has time to find a trade partner, leaving MG around to workout in the facilities in the Boof.

    If Quebec intends to trade/waive Grigo, I don't see why they'd have a problem with him working out here while they find him a new home.

    They could do what the did last year and rotate guys until they trade one like they did with Kucherov. It has to be either Grig or Sorensen (ANA) that are traded though

    Thank god. Give them a chance to play. They've seen the NHL. They know where the have to improve to succeed at that level. Now let them go work on it. It is about time.

    McNabb, Ruhwedal and Adam can be called up if needed.

    I doubt they waive him when they can get assets for him, but that would be absolutely ideal. If he gets waived, I beleive he'd be able to go to the AHL, which I think is obviously a better development league for him.

    Also, great move for Zads. London is a strong team, and he'll have a huge role there.

    extra good news besides Zadorov heading to London to be with Hunter, play 30 minutes in all situations, and a memorial cup run, we did not eat any of his ELC.

    If he gets waived and no one makes a claim he can go to the AHL. Someone will probably claim him.

    Seems fair. Bit worried about Grigorenko though, this is the second year in a row his tried to stick and not made it. I just haven't seen the energy from him and Nolan barely gave him a shot before sending him back. Curious more than anything else. This'll help Zad no doubt, I wasn't sure he was ready tbh.

    Good news all around. Let the tank continue with the majority of veterans. It shows the organization which veterans could possibly stick around through the rebuild, while allowing the young guys to gain confidence and more playing time in other leagues. I was starting to become really concerned, as most of the young guys just didn't look ready, and you always worry about stunting their growth.

    Will Sabres use their two-week AHL conditioning stint first before dispatching Grigorenko back to QMJHL? Hope so.

    Interesting

    Interesting dynamic that giving these guys spots (especially Grigorenko) pissed off veterans royally. Another big downfall to Rolston and Regier was that the veterans were upset with them. One of the first things Nolan said was that you have to respect the veterans

    I'd imagine Grigorenko is going to the AHL for conditioning. I doubt the Sabres or Buffalo want to have him come sit around while they figure out a trade.

    Was this actually reported somewhere or are you just speculating?

    If Grigorenko is sent down for a 2 week stint now before being sent to the QMJHL, he would get in 6 games for the Amerks.

    Hilarious how out of touch Regier was.

    Glad to see it even if it is for two weeks. Better level or him than NHL or Juniors.
