I agree that Granlund has been consistently improving his play.

If his scoring does not improve somewhat over the next 5 games or so, I think it would be safe to say our whole team's scoring does not improve as well. I really think it's more a team thing right now.

If that is the case, I really wouldn't mind Larsson and/or Zucker getting a shot at coming up. Just to give them a taste of NHL and to give them an idea of what they will need to succeed here. From their play in Houston, they both deserve a little time up here.

If Granlund gets sent down, it would not be because of punishment. It might not hurt him to have a little more time developing down there with Coyle.

Granlund has been good, but not really better than anyone here, and we have a lot of players fighting for a spot. I'ld rather have him down there for a bit than up here benched again. Being in Houston might help his confidence more if he can score a little more as well. Teamwide we have hit an all new low in regards to our pathetic ability to score, and that can't be good on anyone.
