I was a little confused with Granlund going down to the 4th line after he has been playing much better as of late. I mean giving the kid 8 minutes of ice after playing his best hockey of the season the 3 games before??

Doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Zucker is here to stay though I think thats evident. Larsson played well in a checking role and maybe its Granlund who goes down with a Bouchard return.

I sure don't want that with his recent step up in play and abilities starting to show. He sets up 3 good chances for line mates every single game and has been shooting more. Also he has his feet going nonstop which has been opening up opportunities for him lately.

While sending him down will only help his development I'd rather have him up with the Wild right now...its just with Zucker likely staying and PMB coming back..Granlund might be the odd man out I'm afraid.
