Konopka actually helped create space for Granlund with his size and Grittiness. He helped out along the boards too..playing with a big gritty player like that is just what Mig64 needs IMO.
I'd be fine with him at wing this year..he just needs to play with a big body on his line to help separate pucks from defenseman. If he could somehow end up on Koivu's wing or on Coyles line that would be ideal.
I agree that he definitely needs a big, at least somewhat gritty linemate, but if you're looking for production, that has got to be someone else besides Konopka. He's not top 6 material. Great guy, performs well on the 4th line, good at faceoffs, but that's where it ends.
