Me too.

Granlund has shown to be good on the wing, I can't believe it hasn't even been tried yet.

Koivu and Granlund have already played together in the WC's, why the hell are they not given a chance at least?

Who would even center Parise and Granlund, though?

Either have Granlund center Parise and Coyle, or just put Granlund in Coyle's spot on the top line.

I'd like to see either.

I think Yeo is afraid of splitting Parise and Koivu. Its been quite a while since Koivu played with a good winger (and Parise is a great winger)

There will be time when the two are separated, but for now they need to be together. To be honest both have been very good imo the whole season. Their play has been close to excellent, but the scoring has been a little off. Not much though. Throw Granny in there and see the scoresheet go wild. With a capital uu.

I think it's his "last resort" option. He probably wants to exhaust all of the other combinations first.

I couldn't agree more..Granlund would make Parise look real good. Even better than Mikko does. Put all three of them on the same line...jackpot!

I'd even settle for Granlund in between Parise-Heater and Koivu with PMB who always plays well with Koivu but for some reason hasn't been tried lately.


Something like:

Parise-Granlund-Heatley
Setoguchi-Koivu-PMB

for the top 6. Granlund will eventually get himself to top line status this year. Its only a matter of time before he starts piling up points. He is getting better every game.

Nanne was pretty adamant that Granlund will continue to be the #2 center.

Take that for what it's worth.

Very solid work from Granlund for the Seto goal (nice finish also).

The boy is looking better game by game.

I stopped watching Minny games because they are so boring, but what did Granlund do to go from 19 minutes to 12 minutes this game?

He played last game very good, that's pretty suprising.. Haven't seen the game yet, gonna watch it after the work.

One of them is a Finnish troll, the other one is a semi-troll.

Did something drastically change after last July, or were you just trolling back then?

Granlund

Definitely starting to come along. He's trying to do too much sometimes but there were other times where you could see how his ability to make quick plays in small spaces is going to do him well in the NHL and sooner rather than later.

Forget the stat line and healthy scratch, these guys started slow and turned out alright:

Also, according to Gabranth, Barkov has a decent chance of becoming a 20-30 point 2nd line center in the NHL, which makes no sense whatsoever. How are we supposed to take this stuff seriously?

Well thats not true. Granlund and Koivu have always played in different lines in the WC. They may've had some shifts together during some single game, but in '11 & '12 WC, Koivu centered the top line and Granlund played wing for the second line. They didnt even play together in PP.

Thank you! Wondering if I was crazy. At this point he looks like PMB's smaller, weaker, less skilled, brother. A boy amongst men at this point. OTOH, Brodin looks like the Wild's best D man.

How can the evaluators get it this wrong? I was led to believe that Granlund was something special, and that Brodin might not be a top four D man.
