I have been pleasantly surprised by Granlund in the defensive zone. Not sure what I expected but he's been good, in position, maybe hasn't faced a ton of pressure in the matchups, skates/moves it out, just fine.

If people think he's too defensive...that's excellent. That's the trait of an elite player, constantly improving in weak areas. They talk about that all the time with basketball players, find something to improve every offseason (Crosby), otherwise you get predictable (Ovechkin).
