How dangerous could our second line be in the next few years if you have Zack Phillips centering Guillaume Latendresse and Pierre-Marc Bouchard? Neither Granlund or Phillips will play in the NHL this coming season. But, while Granlund will probably begin his first North American pro season down in Houston getting used to the North American style of game, Phillips will be coming off his third major junior season with St. John as the go-to guy. Phillips could definitely make the jump especially if he focuses on his skating and bulking up during this season and next offseason. Put him between a fit Latendresse and healthy Bouchard and it's magic! Plus, Granlund will most likely make the leap into the roster sometime in the season and we've already seen what he can do when paired with Phillips. Anyone else getting major goosebumps thinking about it?
