Lets wait 4-5 years before we determine who regrets what pick, if at all. Just because he's rippin up the Q, that means little. Teams didnt pass on him because of his lack of scoring. Everyone already knew he could score. Alexandre Daigle could score too.
NHL teams dont draft like fantasy hockey teams draft, keep that in mind too.
I know that they are not drafting fantasy teams, but NHL teams should always draft the BPA. IMO, and I'm pretty sure in the long term I will be right, after Yakupov, Grigorenko was the BPA. He was also a much less risky pick than Galchenyuk ( no knock on Gally, he's a stud).
Grigorenko has gamebreaking abilities. Out of this world hockey IQ. He's going to be an all-star.
