Don't worry.......Be happy!

Everyone will be talking about Granlund's tremendous training camp at this time next year.

Wasn't that actually Koivu when he was drafted in 2001? I recall him making such a quote back then. Of course, back then it would make sense considering the Wild had only played 1 season at that point.

Where has this whole thing about him not signing with the wild come from?! He speaks very dearly of the wild and has good relationship with Koivu. He seems to be extremely excited about the organization.

There's absolutely 0% chance the kid pulls of a "Lindros".

Oh the Wild fans...

Hey now... just because there are two fans that have brought up the issue doesn't mean there is a real worry amongst most/all Wild fans! I'm not worried at all!

It's actually pretty scary how easy it is to start crazy rumors on the internet. I can imagine this:

(fast forward a couple of years)
reporter: "Only 5 years ago you didn't even know that Minnesota Wild existed? How does it feel to be the face of the franchise now?"
MG: ... <WTF?! Where did that come from?!>

Well, we all know...

He most likely wanted to complete his contract with HIFK before signing a new one. I hope.

No points for Granlund but he has probably been the most physical player on the ice in the first period. He's hitting everything that moves! He is able to throw quite impressive hits despite his size.

Ville Peltonen is awesome.

If the assist is the only one Mikael will get in this game, he'd have 1+5=6 in his first 3 games. If he stays healthy, he has legitimate change to get 70 points this year. It's quite impressive since it'd be like 3rd time someone's got that many points in 10 years or so.

There's still 1 period to go and the way the HIFK-nr.1 line has clicked it wouldn't be a shocker if he added some points.

Probably will see pretty limited ice time on the 3rd tho.. The game is pretty much over.

I was just looking at the Wild 2011-2012 Team Guide you can download at Wild.com, and it had a section called "Future Wild." Lo and behold, there was Granlund, wearing Wild kit to boot. You can't get more definitive proof than that!
