Here's the thing. Cullen isn't bad. He isn't good. He's just there. But at least you have a guy that has played over a 1000 games in the NHL. Right now, the only thing Granlund has shown is hot and cold play and getting overwhelmed. I rather have Cullen centering the rook instead of a rook centering a rook. If Granlund wants to swing out to wing and bump everyone down a notch (Setoguchi to the third line and Clutterbuck to the fourth and then scratch Rupp or move Rupp to center) that's fine. I just like where Granlund is because you can tell, he's developing at the right pace.
