Pick: Mikhail Grigorenko
Weight: 200 pounds.
With the high likelihood that Rick Nash is done in Columbus, the Blue Jackets need to find another guy to build their franchise around, and Mikhail Grigorenko is the type of guy you can do that with.
His scouting report paints the picture of a scorer that never panics when he has the puck and can win games for his team:
He's the type of player that controls the whole pace of the game. He can play with the puck at the same pace he plays without the puck. He sees the ice and opportunities really well.
He can hang onto it longer than most players; some players might feel that they have to move it quickly, but Mikhail has the patience and the ability to see opportunities and let them develop, which is a special skill.
He's a good guy for Columbus to try and start again with.
