My fear exactly, i want Granlund to succeed as a center, not put him in a position to fail as a rookie.
Setoguchi is good with his speed getting in a position or a breakaway with a leathal shot. I dont see him as a puck posession guy carrying it to the offensive zone but i like him alot.
The other guy needs to be good in posession, checker, passer, fast, strong, skilled and goes to the net and and boards and be also reliable defencively.
I admit i would like him to even fight but that is asking too much.
Parise fits the bill, Bouchard doesnt mostly, Heatley is not so two way and not very fast.
Larsson fits, i would like to see him in the future next to Granlund.
Flame away but i think they match like Coyle and Phillips.
