Correct me if im wrong but if i remember correctly Teravainen started on 3rd and 4th line with 7-10minutes / game, so you kinda can't compare their first seasons, since Granlund was planted on a line and he was given the opportunity to play against 3rd and 4th liners and to run PP2 line with top players of Finland.
I think Granlund took the place of the team in exhibition games. And i always thought Granlund was projected to play in juniors. He just outplayed Matias Loppi and took his place in team and played with Ramstedt and Ahtola.
