Him not making it as a center is more likely than him not making it in the NHL at all IMO.
Fair enough..I like yourself and many others would have liked to see him given the opportunity to play on Koivu's wing. I think he is a perfect player to put alongside those two..and it was kind of given to Coyle based on his size and RH shot.

Nonetheless like yourself i believe in Granlund and he will be a good NHL player. He has produced at too high of a level everywhere else to think that his skills won't eventually translate to the NHL as well..it just takes time with some players.
