He had a similarly rough NHL debut to Grigorenko despite being two years older and having played top level men's professional hockey for three years. On the other hand, in 29 AHL games this year he put up 28 pts.

Personally, I'd be prefer rolling the dice on Grigorenko over Granlund. He will be the better player and he has NHL size. But I suspect at this point we'd have to add to make a swap.
Yeah, I'm seeing a 21 year old who has the same kind of debut as a 19 year old, just scoring-wise, and wondering if he brings some other dimension to his game that I'm not aware of.
