Anyways, I think BOTH lines work out, but I totally see your point in that Koivu and PMB work well together.
One thing I keep wondering is PMB's (non)ability to defend well. It's not so much a positional thing as it is a size thing. I'm wondering if having PMB and Seto on the same line creates quite a lapse in defense.
PMB has a GREAT underrated shot, and Seto has a hell of a shot too, so if Granlund can gel with them and they simply heat up on offense, maybe the defense thing won't matter
Like i wrote above, i think it matters, it puts Granlund in a position to defend in his own and fail.
And Parise and Koivu need a shooter, Heatley or Seto.
