Your comment is irrational. Salomäki was a centre forward and Ma.Granlund a winger at the Summer Challenge. There they faced both USA and Sweden twice in a very small rink. Salomäki was probably the top player for Team Finland and Ma.Granlund played the same perimeter game as before, no problemos. In addition Salomäki played well as a centre forward at the previous WJC’s after mostly playing wing for his club team. Playing centre forward against teams like Sweden, Canada and USA is tough, IMO it’s not an ideal job for Ma.Granlund at this point. And talking about recent positions, has Ma.Granlund even played centre forward more than a few shifts this season?
