Which is going to be a problem for Granlund.

I'm not worried about points or offense. It's the fact that Granlund does not look like an NHL player. It's fine if he was providing some good defense and creating chances, but he's a liability on the ice and the Wild can't afford to have that as a 2nd line center.
