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.
Brodin is all of what? 175 pounds? Granlund doesn't need to bulk up as much as he needs to learn to position himself and use his body. He just needs more experience.
