At this point it looks like Granlund's ceiling is Bouchard. But wait Granlund doesn't have Butch's skating skills, and I have yet to see these great hands. Sorry to be the downer guys but his skills aren't elite. He needs to drastically improve his speed and strength to play in this league. He has held the puck on his tape in the offensive zone for no more than 4 seconds at a time.

He needs to be back down in Houston improving what he has now seen that his game is lacking. Hopefully someday we will see a return of the FBJ but as of now I have lost all faith in him being our top prospect. He still isn't ready and probably won't be for another year or more. Strength takes time to build and speed I don't know he just need to keep moving his feet and stop coasting.
