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.
I never said you said that. I said that I personally am not pinning my hopes on Granlund.

I think we can agree that you expect a lot more from Granlund in the NHL, than I do. That's fine, heck, I hope I'm proven wrong in the future.

But as long as the Wild can continue to be a winning team, and get to the Stanley Cup in the next decade, I will be very happy.
