Dude, somebody put the puck right through Adam's skates and walked right on by him. He has a LONG way to go. However, playing at the highest level will develop him, I just don't know what the cost may be.

stupid play by him, but that wasnt the point. I was majorly concernrd with him 1 vs 1 on the rush against NHL speedsters. he's done ok in that aspect. they dont come much faster than grabner and he's held his own, thats a fact.

The man would have 82 goals a year if he scored on every one. Its insane the amount of breakaways he gets.

Tom Chorske was like that. Fleet feet and hands of stone.

That was a brutal play, he stuck of his hip to try and hipcheck the guy and didn't even get a piece of him. Horrid plays by Larsson are sometimes just forgiven though, it's a function of people wanting him to be great already. I still think he's the 7th best defenseman on the team(which doesn't make him bad).

Also, no goal on the play makes it easy to overlook or forget, another reason why it can be hard to accurately judge a performance, even though we all watched it. A kind of bad play leading to a goal influences our opinion much more heavily than a horrific play that leads to no goal.

 

I agree with this, people tend to forget / ignore his bad plays cause they wan't him to be what he's supposed to be, but other than his great vision and outlet pass and good stick, i see a lot of holes in his  game that he'll have to work on to get where people want him to be.
