Now Zucker comes up and scores and if he continues to impress in the next 4-5 games then Granlund will be in Houston. We have a logjam of forwards and because he isn't a checking line center..Mig 64 will be the one to go down. For better or worse that is what is shaping up to happen with Zucker performing and no trades imminent.
Larson will be sent down not Granlund, the only reason Larson is still with the team is because of the flu bug that went around. They are not going to send Granlund down so ZK can play more. ZK was scratched 20 times last year and was only brought in to be a depth forward.

I think one thing that is perfectly clear is Granlund is here to stay even if it means bouncing him around lines and from center to wing. It actually says something positive about him imo that he has handled the bouncing around as well as he has, takes a certain amount of maturity and desire to handle it the way he has.
