Granlund has improved in just about every game. He has also shown that he has a very good work ethic and is not a prima donna at all. He listens and continues to work on his weak areas.

He will get there.

I would also like to point out, especially to all the highly negative posters that love to find fault everywhere possible, that Granlund is a fine scater. He will never be known as fast, but he has great mobility and skates well enough to play in the NHL.

He is also listed at about 5'10" and 180lbs. he has a bit of a stocky build and will definitely fill it out a little more. For comparison, Crosby is listed at 5'11" and 200lbs.

Granlund will be good for this team and have a good NHL career.

When he moves his feet, Granlund has fine speed.

He was more of a threat last night than Heatley, Bouchard, Cullen, Clutterbuck, and possibly the entire 1st line, who didn't do much.

Deuce, I agree that Granlund is probably close to strong enough, but he's still got to work on staying on his feet.

He's looked so much faster now that he gets his feet moving.

Parise say's in media that he is a great player with great vision and said that he is going thru the same thing that he did at he's time. The adjust to play against bigger and stronger experienced NHL players on fast paced game..

I find it good / promising thing that Parise believes in him. He aint he's country mate or anything, he wouldn't say it like that if he didin't think so at all.. He must have also seen how granlund has been doing so much better lately and now says that mikael will be a good NHL player.
