I've seen him make a tape to tape-pass that way numerous times. No way he wasn't trying to do that.
Jets fan. Amazing pass.
Man, Granlund is so sick! He's always making these slick little players.
yeah why is no one mentioning that, perfect snipe , and not easy for a left handed shot coming up on the left side of the goalie, shot needed to be perfect and it was.
Grandalf marking doors and blowing smoke puck alley-oops
My first thought was “wow”. My second thought was “man, what kind curve does Granlund use?”
granlund is legit.
I also love the clear recognition after the pass, knowing it was to Staal, meaning the Cener is going deep, so Granlund also recognises he needs position high in the zone already and is moving to said position.
Showing his tremendous hands, vision and IQ all at once.
Does anyone really NEED assault spinoramas? This is not what the founders of the NHL had in mind, we need common sense spinorama regulation.
Would be much more impressive if they weren't fluttering saucer passes
"Blindly"... That's hilarious. You've obviously never seen him play before. He makes these no look passes all the time.
Yes, Matthews alone makes plays like this 15-20 times a night.
How is it a good thing he always blindly throws the puck away? And how is it skilled? IT was 100% luck and system based. No where did I mention Matthews. No where did I say 15 times a night. I do see that play every night actually.
But whatever. It's not that nice at all but for whatever reason people would rather come at me instead.
Sweet pass. Great shot..
Nothing done blindly on that play....Granlund saw Staal moving in and passed it intentionally right to him, then goes to move into the center high position knowing it was Staal he passed to, thus knew the center was going inn deep.
Great vision, great pick handling, great pass, great IQ.
That was all skill.
And no, you don't see intentional tape to tape passes off spinoramas every night... it just doesn't happen.
It doesn't work every night, but at least watching the games I see that play many times a night from guys like Marner to guys like Kapanen. It's a play where you know someone should be there, so you spin and throw the puck and sometimes they get it.
If this is considered amazing to wild fans I feel really sorry they don't get to watch actual elite talent every night.
You seem to be under the impression that it's just a spin and toss to a spot and hoping someone is going to be there and don't seem to recognize that there was no "hoping" involved, he KNEW Staal was going to be there in particular, and knew where to put the puck so it would be on the tape of Staal's stick.
That was elite level vision and passing and you know it. Granlund is absolutely an elite playmaker, this was just another example.
I think it's hilarious that you have no idea what you're looking at, yet claim to see it every night.
How dare you compare plugs like marner or kapanen to mighty Granny!
Sure, whatever. Enjoy the rest of your night.
Please take off the glasses.
Blah blah blah, wasn't a Leafs player blah blah blah must be the most common play ever blah blah blah
Yeah.. you too. I havent seen a single Leafs player performing similar pass.
But you see what you want.
Ps: dont bother answering, you've been ignored. As i enjoy reading these forums without blind homerism..
What exactly do you think "vision" is in hockey? Please elaborate so I know why these passes require no skill/vision
Also how can it be both luck AND system based at once? What are you even trying to say here lmao
