Granlund's joining Finland's national team camp next week. So he'll be playing against Belarus on Friday and Saturday.

I hope Koivu can build his confidence back up, along the national team trip.

A new YT vid about his highlight reel plays so far in his career. It is missing some of his playoff performances though.

So, am I right in saying that Granlund's second half/last part of the season was quite sub-par?

Yes you are, well compared to what he is capable. It was still better than average compared to other league players.

To summarize few interviews of the past week or so:

Apparently Granlund's illness is history, and he's gotten himself to a better physical shape, when compared to the playoffs, at least. He himself says that in the playoffs he didn't exactly have the best playing touch possible, but doesn't want to make any excuses. After the playoffs he's been training mainly alone, so he doesn't expect to be able to play at his top level in his first NT exhibition games this year, which if I've understood correctly are played on Friday and Saturday against Belarus.

Also, the NT doctor has said that any claims that Granlund would've had something more serious were overly exaggerated. So I guess that would put an end to any mono suspicions or something else along those lines.

Pressball.by interviewed Mikael Granlund and asked if there's a chance he will play for Minsk in the KHL and will he start the next season with Minnesota Wild.

He basically says that he's ready to play in higher level than the finnish SM-league but his plans are in the NHL rather than in the KHL.

He hopes to start the season with the Wild and tries to break into the team and take his place there. He acknowledges it isn't with a 100% certainty and only time will tell but he feels that in any case as a 20-year-old he's ready for something new and logically NHL - the World's top league appeals him the most.

I have no idea what he is talking about but MG got an assist in Finlands 5-0 win vs Belarus tonight. A pass in front of the net to Pesonen who had a easy job to put it in.

Finland - Belarus (pre-WC scrimmage ) 5-0. Granlund: 0+2. It doesn't tell much though..

Vehanen: 6 saves
Koval: 35 saves

Rather uneven match-up.

EDIT: Spawnisen beat me, but wasn't it two assists?

Yes, it was 2. It was also said, that Pesonen, Immonen and Granlund's line could do what ever it wanted in the game - but yeah, still that wouldn't tell much about Granlund's current level of play. At least it's good that he got a good game under his belt, given the fact that he's played only four games during the span of like the last two months or so.

E: Seems like Granlund had 20:17 TOI, which is the highest among skaters of team Finland. Perhaps some vague conclusions about his health status could be made. Or perhaps not.

He himself stated that he feels better now than in the long time... It seems that he had a really bad case of influenza or perhaps mycoplasma. We all know his potential, his health and condition are my greatest concern...

Glad to see he's got his crap all together before he comes over here.

That said next month is going to be a nail biter as May 20 approaches.

No doubt he's signing after winning the WC again.

That'd probably take good fifteen years then.

I'm guessing 53 points and maybe a top 5 rookie.
