I'd give it a few games. I have been laboring for him to get top PP time for a long time. Thats the best time for him to develop some confidence AND for the Wild to get some production out of him. He looked pretty good on the half wall IMO maybe a little rusty but should get better.

I'd still like him to use that wrister more but his passing in that spot is as good or better than Mikko's right now so keep him there. Even going 1-6 or whatever we did we were like 3 for out last 30 before that so its an improvement.

I've said it before and will say again if he keeps playing PP I don't mind him on the 4th line..I'd like to see him move up ilke he did tonight a few times with Zucker and Coyle(I believe?) but 4th line and PP is better than Houston.
After the pk played so much, there were a couple times the kids were out there together, but I think that's more due to the pk'ers needing a rest. As I mentioned though, late in the game he did replace Cullen on the 2nd line again, and Zucker has already given credit to Granlund for drawing all the defenders on that rush when he went straight to the net, allowing Zucker to sneak in on the backside.
