Elite Prospects has this:

Larsson 6'0 198
Granlund 5'10 183.

Both are probably optimistic by an inch or so, but that still puts Larsson as average height and weight and Granlund below average height and weight for an NHL'er.

Last night we saw great games from Pominville and Granlund, which is fantastic for next year. Two skilled top-six wingers. But we still have a hole at the #2 center position.
Yeah, two games ago Pominville only had 4 points in 5 games with multi-point efforts in the only two games the Wild got points out of (the CBJ games) during April. He'd quite obviously helped the Wild.

There were multiple problems with your Pominville-hasn't-helped argument, not the least of which being that a 5 game sample size is too quick to jump to any conclusions (so is a 7 game). The big problem was that you were comparing what the Wild had done before (with Cullen and Heatley) to the Pominville era. It's an obvious enough problem that I'm surprised any non-SoH poster would attempt to make that statement.
