    Blue Jackets Bring Back Grigorenko

    https://nhl.nbcsports.com/2020/04/20...o-back-to-nhl/

    Another lightweight, high draft pick failure of the Sabres. At least Girgensons stuck.

    Swiper: It's more like the Jackets jumped the gun. Grigs will sign when free agency opens.

    How did this guy "suddenly" mature. He was given several chances to make it here. Not only by the Sabres. Are the Blue Jackets really convinced that's going to translate in the NHL? His numbers in the NHL were disappointing.

    I'm a huge grigo supporter. But, yeah, he had several chances. He did become a regular in Colorado, but getting twenty some odd points isnt what they expected.

    Buffalo ruined him. He should have gotten his 9 games (because that's how we could tell the kid wasnt ready) but they kept him. And did it again the next year.

    From all accounts, he is a very good player in Russia. Maybe he did mature. Maybe he will flop. Again. Still disappointed he never made it here.

    Everyone in Buffalo had huge expectations for him. He's now felt to be a bum.

    Of course they did. At one point, he was projected to contend for 1st overall. Grigo is a big body and big talent. And it just never clicked for him.

    It's a sad tale of how buffalo has mismanaged prospects and continues to (mittelstadt) or bad luck (Hodgson's injury)

    Just cant seem to catch a break outside eichel and dahlin and reinhart
