The AHL would give Granlund more ice time and build back the confidence. Granted he seems to be a mentally tough kid, i.e. typical Finn. Bouncing him all over the depth chart and scratching him I don't believe is the best way to maximize his development. I think right now Houston would be best. He's looked better no doubt as of late. I'd still rather we send him down. Let him dominate. I'd wager Coach Torchetti can still show him a thing or two on becoming a better hockey player.
There is a pretty big difference in a kid being to good for the CHL and not good enough for the NHL
