Armageddon: Mikael Granlund Re-Assigned to Houston

The Mayans were right.

The Wild have reassigned Mikael Granlund. Life as we know it is over.

Bar the windows, lock your doors, and prepare for looting. You may also want to buy a couple cases of bottled water. Armageddon is upon us, and the world is absolutely, 100% going to end. The Mayans were right, they were just a couple moths late.

Yes, Wild fans, the team has reassigned the Great Hope, Finnish Baby Jesus, the savior with the flavor, Mikael Granlund.

Clearly, the kid is another first round bust to be thrown on the trash heap with James Sheppard, AJ Thelen, and Colton Gillies. The great era of Chuck Fletcher's drafting has ended, and we will now enter another dark age of picks that pan out to nothing. Life as we know it... is over.

Of course, it could just be that the kid needs further development and is being sent to Houston to get the playing time he isn't getting here. It could be that it is a lockout shortened season, with too much on the line and no time to let a rookie play through struggles. It could be, just maybe, that Chuck Fletcher knows what he is doing, and is developing players the way they are supposed to be developed.

Or, maybe the world is ending. The choice is yours. For now, he goes to Houston, where he will be the man, get some pressure and big minutes, and he can get his legs under him. How you want to interpret it is completely up to you. For us, it is just a kid getting the playing time he needs.

If you need me, I'll be under my desk in proper "duck and cover" fashion.
