Maybe I'm wrong, but didn't Mikko play a little wing early in his first season?

IMO, putting Granlund on the wing temporarily takes a little pressure of him and allows him to get used to the speed and physicality of the NHL without having to concentrate on playing the defensive role of a center position....
