Yes he is the playmaker..we all knew that but I think his goal scoring was underrated a bit.

20 goals in 45 SM Liga games...

8 goals in 21 AHL games.

Not by any means a "poor" goal scorer.

He will be a 25 goal guy in the NHL no doubt in my mind...something Mikko has never done.

PS for everyone that thinks its armageddon with Granlund go look at Koivu and his career path. Granlund outshines him every step of the way stat wise..SM Liga to AHL to first year in the NHL...

He is progressing just fine. Give him time people. The kid will be fine.
