And I feel PMB is better than Granlund ever will be , same game, except PMB has speed.

Personally, I'm not going to pin the Wild's future success on hoping Granlund succeeds. Luckily we have many other players who will/are step up and fill Granlund's void.
Of course Granlund isn't better than Koivu now. That's a very silly argument to make. He's only 20, and so far he's been better offensively at every comparable point in their careers. There's no reason to believe that won't continue right now.

PMB may have more speed, but Granlund has the intelligence that very few on this team match. He'll be fine. His skating will be fine too, he's not fast, but he's good enough for the NHL.

I'm not pinning the franchise's future success on Granlund either. Can you show me where I did that? Don't put words into my mouth. I simply said he can be a 70 point player.
