It amazes me how fast this board has condemned this kid to the discard pile.
He looked pretty good at the World Juniors. Just not NHL good. He played like a wimp when he was here before, how has that changed? He's a boy.
People would argue, and even you, that if you're a player in the AHL, for better for worse, you could probably play in the NHL. In a perfect world, Grigs should be in that group, in the AHL.
I do agree with you in not playing him with horrible players. He won't grow. Play him on the 1st or 2nd line. Take a player, no matter how good, that had no future with the Sabres and replace him with Grigs.
Plus, he won't be the only underachieving Sabre playing with boatloads of potential (see Omark).
This is the problem. There is no fit for him on this team. Not right now.
