I think Yeo has high regard for Granlund. He's just being realistic with him. When he hasn't played great, he's been bumped down the line-up. When he's building lines a certain way, Granlund might find himself on the 4th line because he doesn't fit what Yeo is trying to do.

Granlund wasn't going to play on the 1st line.
Granlund hasn't shown the speed needed to be on Yeo's "speed' 2nd line of Setoguchi-Cullen-Zucker.
Granlund doesn't protect the play or play defense well enough to be on the 3rd shutdown line of Larsson-Brodziak-Clutterbuck.

So 4th line it was.
