Also, Brodin looks good, but still his points are kind of missing. 15 games 3 assists and +- 0. Not really that impressive on paper atleast.
umm he's freaking 19 years old, 2nd in rookei TOI gets barely any PP time and he shuts down top lines but thats not good enough? holy **** dude.
For others saying Granlund needs to bulk up, here is the thing, he doesn't need to be ripped like hulk, he needs to be strong so he doesn't get knocked around. Brodin is an excellent skater, one of the best in the whole league he uses his ability to move around the ice to his advantage in addition to his smarts. Kane is also an explosive skater who has quite a bit of his physical deficiency covered up by a stacked team.
If Granlund can't skate that well and he can't, he will need to rely on strength to win battles and so far he hasn't looked like he is there yet.
This isn't as simple as Player Y = x lbs and Player Z= xish pounds so its not his weight that's the issue. One example is Marty St. Loius, he's not heavy he's STRONG.
