Granlund had a pace of 2.381 faceoffs per game this season. Most top-six centers take approximately 10 faceoffs per game.

If we make the assumption that all of Granlund's faceoffs came during games he was actually playing center, not just coming in after his pivot was waived, then he played about 15 games (maximum) as a center last year. At most, he was a center for 23.8% of last season. What about the other 76.2%?

Granlund isn't a full-time center, and very much should not be pencilled in as an option to pivot in a team's top-six. You don't actually have to watch the games to prove that, all you need is a modicum of common sense.

Strange that the both of you insist that someone doesn't know what they're talking about, complain about them being annoying, insist that other users should check their opinions against statistics, then turn around and do the exact opposite of all of that. Be better.</div></div>

I was going to say I've seen Granlund take some faceoffs when the actual center on his line gets booted from the dot, but he didn't play center on any of the games the Wild played the Preds in since he was traded and outside of an odd shift at center if someone was injured or in the penalty box, he didn't play center for the last 2 1/2 years of playing for the Wild.
