In a shortened season leave him here as long as he's still progressing. (And he is)

He's got nothing to learn in the AHL...other than the regain the confidence argument.
However, what if he goes down and because of a lack of confidence doesn't do
Well in the AHL? What then..?

Keep him here. For a 20 year old, undersized rookie...he's doing fine.
Well, the reason I responded was because the intent of the post I quoted was trying to bring to light that any doom-and-gloom posts about Granlund are just posts looking attention, and I agree with that.

But the NHL/AHL debate is a legitimate argument to have and will not hold it against anyone who is on either side of the argument.

If someone complained that Granlund is going to fail, and looks like a bust, I would say, get lost because they obviously have not seen him play and watch him improve. If someone complained that he should be in the AHL rather than the NHL, I would actually take the time to read the argument and respond accordingly.

That is my only point.
