When Mikko was 21, Wild fans referred to him as Mikko Mouse and doubted if he even existed. I remember many complaining every year that the team should have drafted Mike Komisarek (sp?) Instead.

I had faith in Mikko, I have faith in Granlund. He was improving with each game, but was a victim of a short season with no training camp thus very little practice time to make adjustments.
