Nonetheless like yourself i believe in Granlund and he will be a good NHL player. He has produced at too high of a level everywhere else to think that his skills won't eventually translate to the NHL as just takes time with some players.
People seem to have no patience with young players these days. A prospect ****s up once---> he's a bust. Fortunately the teams usually have more patience than that. With Europeans having patience is even more important, because many of them tend to develop more slowly than North Americans and reach their primes later. I don't know if Granlund is one of these players, but he wouldn't be the 1st Finn to be like that and probably not the last one either.
