They probably shouldn't. I know people (and likely the Jax) think this is a low-risk move but it's really going to be a waste of time.

Maybe it's a deep thought move. They did it now, when they know the league won't allow it, but make some other team think he's still got something. So on July 1, some other team will try to swoop in and sign him. :lol:

Grigorenko officially signs.

Not a game breaker on a team lacking game breakers, but they have a lot of offensive pieces here. It doesn't take much to get three of them to click.

Grigorenko is a very frustrating player. Not fast, but very big, rangy, and talented, and extremely intelligent. Unfortunately he also plays a total perimeter game that pretty much renders him useless (I was about to call him softer than hoarded toilet paper, but I really hate that term in hockey circles). I give the over/under around a month before he lands squarely in Tortorella's doghouse.

I like this Blue Jackets team. Scrappy and tough to play against. Could use a bit more talent, which Grigorenko could help.

Nyqvist out 5-6 months with shoulder surgery. Already offensively challenged, this won't help.
