Yeah, but if you get a chance to watch a Hawks game, watch Kane real close...he does have speed, but he rarely turns it on...I don't want to say that he "floats", but he just has a knack for finding the open ice and putting himself in a position to create something. He's a very efficient player. I think Granlund, if put at wing, could do the same thing.
