Unless you're suddenly projecting him as a 4th line grinder.
This is really bothering me as well. I do not understand why the hell Granlund is now continually put into a position he is very unlikely to succeed in.

Imo, he's been better than both Cullen and Brodziak, so I don't get it.

I also don't understand why he is sitting Konopka the way he has.

I get it, Konopka took a stupid penalty a couple games ago. It's not because of that we lost... He was trying to fire up the team, who had no legs to skate for whatever reason. He's one of our best face off guys and he is also one of our best forecheckers. He's decent at cycling the puck, and he plays the fourth line roll well.
