Is he doing ok in Russia? Point-wise and play-wise? Anybody keeping track?

I think Igor is a long shot at this point. I think a lot of the hopeful/nice things said about him having another chance now that he knows what he's up against were said out of respect for a player that's been through a lot.

Fading away then? Perhaps that's not a big surprise...

Him losing his speed has really done him in as I think a lot of his game relied on it. I don't know if he can get it back.

Forward Igor Grigorenko (Salavat Yulaev, Russian Elite League) has two goals and two assists in his last five games. It took him 16 games to produce the same numbers when he first returned to Russia, so this is a good sign.

Only thing I can hope from from Grigs is that he is traded at the deadline for somebody good, instead of losing someone worth half a damn.

Brunnstrom is teh fuTures!!
"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

I'm hearing from a fan in UFA that his play has been better of late,but they still question his conditioning saying he is a bit slow and still getting tired quickly.....

I'm sure an accident like he had could possibly affect one's VO2 Max for the worse. I wonder if this may be the case with him. Also muscle tissure can have a more difficult time utilizing the oxygen. His lactic threshold could be lower, all kinds of complications, unfortunately.

Last year, he swore up and down that he'd be back. Are we to assume that's no longer the case? I'm guessing Holland's loud silence on Grigs is a vote against?

Although many of the readers on here seem to lose interest on our old prospects once the org cuts ties with them. This is for those who like to keep tabs on them. I for one had real high hopes for Grigs and the what if, factor really does apply to this kid. It seems the Wings
lost a FHOF when the Limo carrying Vladdy crashed and it seems that another auto crash has
cost the Wings a top draw performer when Grigs career was scuppered for the best part of 2 years. He never recovered enough to get a spot on the team when he made his attempt. But another couple of years down the line he seem's to have gotten back some of his strength and speed. He has lost 6LB and is feeling the benefits. Playing on the 2nd line for his KHL side
Ufa Salavat Yulayev he has hit some form of late. With fellow Togliatti native and former NHLer
Viktor Kozlov as his centreman Grigs has 13 goals and 21 pts in 37 games with a +16 rating. Former 1st round pick Alexander Radulov leads the team with 18 goals and 43 pts. Also of note is former Wings prospect Miroslav Blatak leads the D and is 2nd overall on the team in the +- with a +22 rating, no mean fete when their blueline consist's of former NHL vets Dmitri Kalinin and Oleg Tverdovsky.

He now has 19+12 and a +22 rating in 47 games. This is now his best return in the Russian
Elite/KHL since the 02-03 season where he lead Tolyatti Lada with 19+11 in 47 games as a 19 yr old. A certain Alexander Semin was also on the roster and finished with 10+7.

Yes, I always keep tabs on Ufa to see how he is doing. Nice to see his game coming around.
