so watching granlund still adapting and how people on here were all gushing about finally having a #1 center, just have to ask, do you appreciate Koivu more because he actually stays upright most of the time.

I think what Granlund needs to do is the opposite of what he's done as a playmaker, he needs to start throwing the puck on net every chance he gets, just throw the puck on net and let Seto or whoever crash.
I think one of his problems is he's trying to make a cute pass, he's trying to make that perfect pass and he doesn't have a parise or heater to take up space, so what he needs to do is lob every freaking puck on net he can to get dman to back up a bit.

he should be good tho, Yeo using him late in the game today showed that, also his skating isn't nearly an issue people were claiming it to be, ( i might have been one of those people) but he does need to keep his feet moving all the time.
