Most small players are very strong for their size, while Granlund is just as weak as he looks. He wins about 1 in 20 battles along the boards, and if the opponent gets a slight deflection on the puck when MG is handling it, he is never strong enough to battle possesion back.
I agree with this. Not only bulking up a bit, but also processing everything he learns this season and working on things in the offseason. I fully believe next year he will start living up to the hype.
