It's all about knowing where to be on the ice and when to be there, that way you don't NEED to fight through checks or battle on the boards.
If you are the one holding the puck you can only do so much positionally. Most of the time you can only outskate or outmuscle your opponent. Kane is ridiculous with his skates and can get away from people, Granlund cannot. He definately needs to bulk up because he is not fast enough to do what Kane does.
