Gaborik had 36 points in his rookie year so I'll be happy if Granlund matches that.

Gaborik was 18...Granlund will be 20. And Granlund's going to have MUCH higher quality linemates.

I don't think 50 points is out of reach for Granlund.

Something to think about, last year Skinner has 31G + 32A = 63 Pts. Skinner did that when he was 19. Granlund will be 20. 50 would be a big upgrade, and maybe we'll win a few more shootouts with his sick moves

Yes, I fold.

To be serious, I am happy with 40 points. You expect too much from him and will de disappointed.

Anyways, Granlund got two assists on PP tonight and leads FEL scoring now (6 + 12). So, he will wear that ridiculous golden helmet again in the next match. Way to go.

So basically what you're asking Wild fans to do is manage expectations? Uh oh...

I'm expecting +55 rookie season from Mikael. Yes that is much but I rather believe he is going to make impact than not. Am I the next homer?
Read his post again. He didn't say it with sarcasm.

10C for Barkov...

If works here in Brazil, i guess it works everywhere.

Beautiful play by Granlund.

UrhoTV's game highlights on youtube. I can hardly stand the ruutu.fi video player, because it fails to function properly for me.

From what I've heard, Granlund's second point wasn't exactly merited, but I suppose it happens occasionally.

So what you're saying is that it's possible to develop after the age of 19!?

What was that D doing there?! Nothing away from Granlund but once again bad play by the opposite defenseman. And nice pass, anyhow.

BTW. What bugs me a little in MG's amazing passes is that I have NEVER seen him giving a really good sound and proper saucer pass! Never. And I mean by that a pass that makes the puck fly like a saucer, as supposed, not like some unsteady butterfly. He gives dubious butterfly passes, not solid saucer passes as they are supposed to be given! It's weird but true. Period.

Went to watch the game today and boy was I ever impressed with Granlund. That pass was a thing of beauty but even more impressive was his tenacity and defensive game. In my mind, he was the best defensive forward for HIFK while also being their most dangerous player in the offensive zone. He makes so many right decisions on the ice.

If that's your next counter-argument to why Granlund is bound to fail you are digging yourself an even bigger hole. Oh if only Mikael saucers didnt flutter! Then he would be a star!!

Seriously, dudes a good prospect. You don't need to just hate on him for no reason other than to be an antagonist.

Why is Granlund's CEILING only a 50-60 point player like you say...? I mean sure. Maybe he becomes that in the NHL, but their is no way you can say he WON'T become more than that.

I'm pretty sure he has still time to work on his saucer pass... If not, you can always do it like this:

I know. Also, a lot of his goals just go into the net, not off of the post and into the net. It's really frustrating, not hearing that awesome *ting* sound every time he scores. I don't see him having a future in the NHL until he can do it regularly. What a wasted pick...

Granlund's first assist was pretty!

I had to laugh at the goal at 1:55. Maybe Granlund needs to start shooting from his defensive zone if he wants to pot a few more goals?

If you want to know what really really annoys me about Granlund. It's the fact that he's already 20 years old playing against grown men in a league that's basically the
2nd best or close to the 2nd best in the world. I hate the fact that he's almost average 2 points a game and leading his team. As a 20 year old? I mean he's not even in his teens anymore. Plus, his passes flutter sometimes before finding the tape of his teammates. It's like WTH Mikael?

He's a bust in the NHL for sure. Kids got no talent. 40-50 point player ceiling. He's proven that so far in his hockey career.

A small correction... he actually is still 19, turns 20 in February.

However, I 100% agree with everything else you said. What a lost cause...
