"Q: OK, what about the Wings' other Russian talent: When is Igor Grigorenko coming over to North America?
A: Not this season. Grigorenko, a 22-year-old right wing once considered one of the NHL's top prospects, remains unsigned and will spend another year playing in the Russian Super League.
The Wings had planned to sign their second-round pick from 2001, just as they did with 2002 draftee Valtteri Fillpula, who will be at training camp and likely play for minor league affiliate Grand Rapids this season.
But negotiations with Grigorenko were put on hold this summer when the Russian Hockey Federation refused to sign a player-transfer agreement between the NHL and the International Ice Hockey Federation.
Said Wings assistant GM Jim Nill: "We'll get him signed next year."
They'll have to, of course, or lose his player rights. But they still have big plans for Grigorenko, who would have stayed to play this season in Russia, regardless.
Grigorenko, who flourished after a midseason trade last year in Russia, has recovered from severe injuries suffered in a car accident in 2003."

Judging from what I read on RWC, it looks like Grigs won't be at the main camp or even the prospects camp. Does anyone know why? You'd think coming to training camp would be a step in the right direction.

Russian League training camp and preseason started almost a month ago..so he can't leave his team in Russia just to come to Michigan for a week.
