I just think the way to improve is here in the NHL. Maybe I exaggerated a bit with the word dominate , but he did out up a point per game, while adjusting and batting through injuries in a non watered down AHL. I don't think Granlund is the player that's going to wow you, but instead I think he's going to silently put up points.

In a shortened season leave him here as long as he's still progressing. (And he is)

He's got nothing to learn in the AHL...other than the regain the confidence argument.
However, what if he goes down and because of a lack of confidence doesn't do
Well in the AHL? What then..?

Keep him here. For a 20 year old, undersized rookie...he's doing fine.
