The lack of size and speed as massive handicaps have been obvious to me for a long time now, I don't understand why they insist(ed) on making him top 2 C right from the start.

This is true but the reason he is playing #2 center and has is because he is simply the best option we have on this team right now to play that spot. Cullen and Brodziak aren't getting it done. So there you find Granlund.

Hopefully the scratch lights a spark for Nashville. Me personally I wish he would be on that top line with Parise and Koivu at wing but I like him better on the 2nd line than in the press box.
