I see no problem with Granlund getting a game up in the press box, especially against a bigger team. Russo and others have agreed that it's not a bad thing for a rookie to get some games in the press box. Heck, Stamkos spent some time up there in his rookie year. I do agree that if it's for an extended period he should be sent down to Houston; perhaps playing wing on a line with Larsson and Zucker?
Still, kind of a momentum killer for the kid considering his last game. Oh, and also, probably bothers him that Coyle gets a shot on the first line and he did not.

What happens if the Wild wins bigtime this game? Is Yeo going to send Granlund down to the AHL in that case? Would be a waste of tallent in my opinion.
