If Granlund dodges injury problems he can out score Huburdeau but will not be as well rounded

Really? Every game I've watched of him he has been defensively responsible.

PRESENTLY, Huberdeau weighs about the same as Briere does, and Huberdeau's defensive abilities are pretty underrated, or at least that was the case when New Jersey fans were presented with the possibility of drafting him in 2011.

I don't really see the Briere comparison at all. They both seem to have a knack for clutch play, though.

Don't know Granlund besides int'l tourneys but I think Huberdeau will be the better NHLer. Granlund should (will) be a 65+pt guy, could easily hit 80... I see him as a top 7-12 C in the league. I'm basing projections off of current league scoring btw.
Huberdeau I think can be a top producer, getting 80+ pts with relative regularity. Also think he will stack up against bigger bodies better. Not to say Granlund will struggle, as he's a fiesty and skilled player, but Huberdeau will simply be more of a presence.
I see Huberdeau getting production similar to Jason Spezza, maybe a slightly lower PPG, while Granlund I see producing similar to Mike Ribeiro while being a better player in most other aspects.

EDIT: I definitely think Granlund could outscore Huberdeau but I think he will need more of a supporting cast than Huberdeau to get to those numbers. Sweet hands and a great passer but Huberdeau can do more to get it to the back of the net on his own.

He has that in Minnesota if their prospects pan out.. or even if half of their prospects pan out.

Huberdeau was selected before New Jersey had the opportunity to draft. I agree he plays more like Giroux than Briere. Also has a bigger frame.
