60% actually so you are right in the sense that he is excellent on the faceoffs. But we did put him with decent players with Cullen and Setoguchi (at the very least, our 2nd most offensive players behind the obvious top line)

Look, Granlund has all the potential in the world, and he is starting to figure it out.

But the mistakes he makes is not a line problem, it is just getting used to the North American style of hockey. He needs to keep his feet moving, he needs to drive into the zone, he needs to battle along the boards.

These problems will be the same, no matter if it is Rupp or Parise playing alongside him.
