Lack of assists?

Yup, me too. Then if I read that he got 1 or less points there's a slight disappointment that runs over me.

He's not playing with the Wild this year.

I heard he got checked quite hard. He won't ever be able to succeed in the NHL if he keeps receiving those on a regular basis.

I'm still waiting for the 3g+2a game (or something like it). Just destroy a team without remorse.

Edit: that doesn't mean I've been disappointed with him so far. Not at all.

Well he did play a 2+3 game during last post-season, scoring all of the points within the margin of 12 minutes and 38 seconds. Too bad he's regressed and will never reach those numbers again.

No he's not that kind of guy. He just scores the important goals, but nothing unnecessary

He didn't work hard enough during the offseason. He's regressed and is now fluttering passes and shots. The kid has no drive to be better. Completely disappointing.

I think we can all agree he's just regressing to the mean.

Well, he took it like a man and had his head up. He's learning that at least.

It's hockey, you have to take hits sometimes. After that hit he got up and scored a goal 15 seconds later o it didn't seem to hinder him much

edit. the kid scored his 2nd with a sweet tip-in

And an assist for a last minute go-ahead goal. Or possibly a deflection, I'm confused.

E: The goal was marked to him.

Darn, he did it again. 2 goals and the second one was a game winner (59.01). Where's his imagination, versatility and creativity!!?!

He now has 8 goals (+4 assists) in the last 8 games. He's now 2nd in the league in goals scored with 14

Guess he just wants to dangle snipe and celly.

His saucers flutter.

He does poorly against fast teams.

He has no cure for cancer.

I don't know how the guy can look in the mirror

Highlights are up. I'm still uncertain whether that horrible ruutu service is available outside of Finland, though. A pun not intended, although a certain Jarkko Ruutu did pull somewhat of a show out there, too.

It's nice to see him putting up goals as well as assists. We all know about his ability to get others goals, we have a shortage of players willing to put it in themselves here.

Those goals really show his great hand-eye cordination. Nice.

When Granlund steps on the ice, you just know something's gonna happen. He's one of those players.
