Patrick Roy knows better than most what makes a great hockey player, so it's no small thing to hear the Hall of Fame goaltender and current head coach and GM of the Quebec Remparts gush about Mikhail Grigorenko, his new star player.

In fact, Roy is so high on the 17-year-old Russian that he traded up -- not once, but twice -- in June's CHL import draft in order to land the 6-foot-2, 191-pound center.
