I don't want to hype him up even more (is that even possible?), but maybe he's developing into a complete player offensively, and not just a playmaker. Much like Crosby (NOT saying he's as good as Crosby).

That would be amazing.

Atleast his shot is in shape, 2 shots 2 goals so far in this game. Without counting this game his shooting% is 13,2 which is one of the best in the league.

He also leads the league in average TOI among forwards with 21.06. However, he's #43 overall, as the top 42 in TOI consists of D-men.

Only 30% sure? Your lack of faith is disturbing.

Which has greater odds of happening:

- the return of the Messiah who brings peace and love to the world

- Granlund making hockey fans (especially Canadians) proclaim the Wild are fun to watch

Even, because they aren't mutually exclusive.

Didn't Granlund already do the first one?

Also, let's stay realistic with that second one. FBJ might get Canada to stop calling us boring, but let's not push our luck with the praise.

Granlund's goals at 1.00 and 2.30. Really good wrister.

MG's second goal with that wrister was sick. Didnt know that he can release the puck so quickly.

If he doesn't sign, we can always call him Granny.

A fear of flutters.. doesn't know how to pass anymore. And he shoots only. Sad story.

Kid just has great instincts for being so young. Just has a good feel for how to find soft spots out on the ice from everything I've seen.

Also, did Endras play? Thought I heard them say his name in the beginning part of the video but couldn't tell if he was playing or whatever. If he didn't, when is he expected to see the ice? Was just curious.

Endras didn't play and wasn't even the back-up goalie, but it was mentioned that he had already landed to Finland.

No, Endras didn't play yet. He was just watching the game and recovering jet lag.

Dennis will see coaching staff and some ice tomorrow. Next game is Friday (against league leading Kalpa). We'll see if he starts then.

EDIT: Too slow..
