Well with Cullen and Konopka out that was precisely the reason.

But I was thinking more right now..why not him on wing in Bouchard's spot.

I have no argument. Just pointing out that if indeed Yeo wanted Granlund on his roster he would be. Simple as that, CF doesn't send Granlund down independant of Yeo making that first decision to not use Granlund as opposed to your inference that CF makes those decisions on his own regardless of what Yeo wants on the ice.

I have no problem with Granlund going to Houston, i do have a problem with him going today and once again the Wild have no extra forward.

I am not going to do this but you can go back and see what I originally posted and quoted on your own. You got snippy with a poster who was upset with Yeo and you said Fletcher makes the decisions who comes and goes. While technically true he wouldn't do that without first consulting Yeo about his plans for Granlund.

Just pointing out how Yeo's not solely responsible for Granlund's assignment. I don't understand why Yeo should get blamed for that when he's going with the better top six player in Cullen.

No disagreement. Chalk it up to a misunderstanding.

Go Wild!

nice goal tonight..moves the puck to the open defenseman and immediately goes to the net..seems like he scores a lot of his goals around that blue paint..I like that. He did a lot of that when I watched a lot of Houston earlier this year

I hope RUPP's leg gets better... I see he has been wearing a brace for a few weeks. Would hate to have both him and Zenon out if we play the Canucks.

Don't mis Konopka one bit, not the tiniest of bits.

His toughness adds nothing, there is not one player in this league who fears Zenon Konopka and this is a better hockey team with Mitchell at C on the 4th line with Rupp and Clutter.

Konopka's okay along the boards, and he's good at faceoffs. That's why he's on the 4th line.

Yeah, Konopka is definitely the kind of guy you want to have, especially if we make the playoffs.

Put. Him. On. Wing. 1 game and he scores a goal. Do you think it's a coincidence?

Oh, OK. Was wondering if you were serious.

We could use Rupp's physical presence.

So, even with the goal and good overall-play, Granlund's going down when Rupp gets healthy enough to play?

Probably. They want Rupp's toughness on the 4th line, not a small although offensively skilled prospect. Of course if yet another forward gets injured, they might keep him up.

Crap, Russo and others are right, Granlund is much better at wing.

Now where is our 2nd top-6 center of the future going to come from?

Haula and Phillips need some more minor league seasoning.
