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.
I've read from a finnish article that Granlund began practising his skating professionally as he came to HIFK, as a 17-year old. So he's improved that part a lot since then and with the right coaching he can still become a lot better.
