If he's the odd man out as you say, then the best place for him is Houston. Instead of wasting a young player on the 4th line, let Konopka do his job with Rupp and Mitchell.
I honestly believe I never said that.

If you want Granlund promoted, you'll have to break up those lines. I'm asking, which one do you want broken?

The 1st line with our three leading scorers?
The 2nd line that finally looks great with addition of Zucker; on the forecheck but also good offensively?
The 3rd line that features two of our best PKers + Larsson that was great along the boards?
