It's a solid theory. I think Granlund can have a Nuge-esque effect on the Wild power play but the Wild also need improved special teams coaching. The additions of Parise and Suter will ensure that the puck gets going in the right direction so the Wild generate more offensive chances.
The problem is that the Wild did not sign the Wizard of Oz this summer so I don't know where Heatley is miraculously going to find some courage. Heatley is a perimeter guy at this point and unless that changes Heatley is still going to struggle, regardless of the quality of his teammates.
So for the most part, I just love ribbing you about him.
