If Yeo gives him top six minutes and he does well, cool. I want to watch him play here as much as everyone else. But if Yeo keeps putting him on 4th line, then send him down. Another difference between Granlund and The Bust I did not consider at the time of my post. Granlund may get out muscled, but at least he does not suffer from deer in the headlights syndrome. So I retract the comparison between those two.

My opinion is keep him here the rest of this year...

Let him get a full season of working out and then a full training camp with the big boys.

If the coaching staff doesn't think he's ready then or what not. Start him at Houston next year.
