I wouldn't call Granlund slow, but not fast either so a good career in the NHL is still a bit of a questionmark. Hoping for the best, but I wouldn't be really really surprised if all things would not go right, but on the other hand he has a pretty good chance to make a(tleast a semi) solid NHL-career. Size can be a obstacle for many, but you can still make it if you develop the other things on your game to a good level and Granlund will still develop.
Who knows at this point, these kids are 17-18 years old and they all have a long way to go.
Oh and Armia, like expected, was the first star of the match.
