Grigorenko not in future plans

Detroit general manager Ken Holland said today about Igor Grigorenko that "I think it's time to move on."
Grigorenko, a long-time Red Wing prospect, came to North America this fall and was a bust. He was sent down to Grand Rapids, didn't like playing in the minors and headed back to Russia where he had a poor season.
Grigorenko came to Traverse City not in the physical condition necessary to play in the NHL. Holland said unless somebody tells him that Grigorenko got himself into top shape, that the Red Wings likely won't make a move to keep the Russian as their property next season.
Holland also said that the Wings intend to sign prospects Dick Axelsson, Daniel Larsson and Logan Pyett, whose rights the team will lose if they're unsigned June 1.
