Other than that, I've mostly seen highlights of him which obviously usually make a player look good.

Management seems to be pretty high on the kid, and he's definitely one of our most skilled prospects we have. He played on a weak team last year, and to me it seems as though every time he gets paired with higher skilled guys, he elevates his game which will be the case over here.

Again, I'm not expecting him to make the Flames this year, but it wouldn't completely surprise me if he did going by managements comments on him.
Yup, both feaster and conroy have stated that the player they are most excited to see in training camp is granlund. Both also said he has a shot at the team this year, if his stellar showing so far carries into training camp. This was from big show interviews on the fan. Granlund was a beast at the prospects camp, and management is very high on him.

I don't know where most on this board are getting their info from.
