That's a very small sample size.

I think Granlund gets sent down because obviously he doesn't have the coach's trust. Fourth line and healthy scratch for, what, the last 5-6 games? You don't have your top prospect on the bench and the press box for three weeks in a row. Send him down for a couple weeks and call him back up like they did with Coyle.

Outside chance that he gets a top six wing spot. Honestly Konopka has been good for his role and never really needed to sit out games. Brodz and Cullen have been fine at center. Koivu's not going anywhere. And with Heatley looking like death, maybe Granny gets a top wing spot. He's worth a shot there.

Will be pretty ticked if he goes back to fourth line C though.
