He's a very efficient player. I think Granlund, if put at wing, could do the same thing.

Yeah Kane is more about finding open space, changing speeds, getting on his edges, and using good body control to set himself up to be able to pull all the fancy moves/plays he does.

Granlund needs to work on moving laterally better more than anything. Getting on his edges and being able to be shifty, etc., etc.

If you've ever played hockey you'll know what I'm talking about.
