Fransson is buried in Luleň in Sweden after a strong preseason. (not his fault)

Belle is struggling to transition to the pros. (I expected this)

Fistric is having a good but not great season. (not terrible, but hoped for more)

Scalzo has been better than expected in Iowa. (nice for a FA signing)

Nickerson is having a strong showing when he's on the ice in Finland. (maybe a little better than expected)

So the way I see it, three or four guys are exceeding what I expected. One or two are right where I expected them, and another's just below expectations. Two have had their seasons affected by circumstances beyond their control. (BTW, I don't really know enough about Ludwig's, Waugh's, or Vomela's seasons to say anything about them.)

That's not really that bad to me. It's about par for the course in development, actually.
anything on Granath? it appears he might be in the same situation as Fransson?
