If Grigorenko drops to 5th and Brian Burke has the sheer audacity to NOT pick him up...

too much truculence to not be grabbed by burke?

He can also dominate with his agility, acceleration and speed.

I had personally hoped that the Canucks traded up in the draft to get this guy, but it doesn't seem realistic.

And Dikembe Mutumbo still looks younger than all of them... :bigblush:

Apparently this is why he's slipping in all the pre-draft rankings. It's certainly interesting. Was this rumour started by a team hoping to have him fall to them?

This reminds me of the Fausto Carmona story, a pitcher for Cleveland. He obtained a false identity in order to get a visa so he could travel to the states, but he is actually older than his false identity says.

Whoever drafts him probably started this rumour.

That's what I was thinking. It would be a smart idea to make him drop in the rankings just so you can snag him.

There really is no way to truly find out his real age. Your birth certificate can be manipulated in pretty much every country in Asia.
