"Finally, after more than a year of concern by many, Mikael Granlund, the No. 2-ranked prospect in February's Hockey News Future Watch, is officially locked up.
The talented playmaking forward signed a three-year, $2.7 million deal. That includes annual $90,000 signing bonuses. He also received a performance bonus structure that should significantly raise the salary-cap hit. Working on the details. but the deal's been done for awhile and essentially the transfer paperwork needed to be finalized, then registered with the NHL."

Man the Wild are really pimping this kid. They are just desperate to get some good PR out. Sad, better not backfire!

Most hype a Wild draft pick has had since Gaborik. His hype built because of highlights over his development after being drafted though...which I think it's safe to say most Wild fans (when the pick was made) didn't expect his development years to go so over the top as they have.
