If Grigorenko hadn't been injured, he probably would have played in the NHL in 03-04. I remember that they signed Hudler shortly after Grigorenko was injured. I think the original plan was to sign Grigorenko (or both, but I highly doubt that they would have signed only Hudler), but obviously that wasn't possible after the accident.

I read recently (on freep, I think) that Holland was considering signing Grigorenko, but the transfer agreement was not in place with Russia, so the plan fell through.

I expect Grigorenko to play at a level very similar to what made him a top ten prospect before his accident. He seems very determined to get back and to be a good player. Broken bones typically heal stronger than they were before, so other than his year of not playing hockey, I don't expect his development to have been affected as much as some suggest.

I've heard that he has gained a good bit of weight (up to about 220lbs), and hasn't really lost any of his speed, which, especially considering his accident, is pretty amazing.

I dunno what the RSL is doing, some kind of tournament thing, but Grigs has 2 goals in 2 games.

Actually that would be the regular season. They call every set of games Round X. Sweden does the same.
