"Who's better, Larsson or Hamilton?"

Listening to Pierre tonight you'd think Hamilton is the greatest defensive prospect in NHL history

I mean, Hamilton is playing with Chara lol


It's a serious question. It seems like they have the same skill set except that Hamilton is a lot tougher.

"Who's better, Larsson or Hamilton?"

Listening to Pierre tonight you'd think Hamilton is the greatest defensive prospect ever.


During the draft, and in the Flyers series, Pierre was talking about how great Larsson was.

Hello fellow American. This you should vote me. I leave power. Good. Thank you, thank you. If you vote me, I'm hot. What? Taxes, they'll be lower... son. The Democratic vote is the right thing to do Philadelphia, so do.

Pierre likes boys under the age of 21.

To answer your question, it's obviously too early to tell. I think Hamilton has better offensive upside, but Larsson will be the better defender

thats why Cammalleri left LA , he wanted too much money and the organization knew they couldnt get a deal done so they traded him.

Larsson just seems to get pushed around a lot, which I don't see that being the case with Hamilton. Yeah, guys like Lidstrom or Borque didn't have to rely on toughness, but Larsson isn't Lidstrom or Borque.

Well he's not signing for $1.5 million on a short-term deal either.

If you're him, would you want to stay in Montreal where you have a big market, get a lot of attention and the fans are generally on your side as opposed to going to Philly where the fans'll turn at the drop of a hat once you're not earning your money?

Has there even been an offer sheet tendered during the season?


I don't think so, if you consider the season starting day 1 of training camp. Kessel could have been, but they traded him instead.

This is just an odd situation where there's almost a second opening day of FA

We'll see. People were projecting Larsson as another Lidstrom when we drafted him. I haven't seen it, but he also did a fairly good job as a 19 year old. If he puts it all together and gets a little heavier, he could be special. Then again, he could be another Paul Martin.

I don't expect any offer sheets to come PK's way because you can be sure that was a subject discussed among the BoG during the lockout.

But would he rather play in Philly, where the tax rate is certainly lower than Montreal? Yeah, probably.

We all saw a glimpse of what Larsson could do in the playoffs in game 2 against the flyers. I want him to do well, but he can't do anything unless he plays. Deboer has to get him in the lineup

"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."

I think they have to move a d-man playing now to create a spot for Larsson

McKenzies says he thinks the PK situation will endup in a trade

Montreal would probably look for another dman

I'm hoping they do it sooner then later. Doing it mid-end of season could really hurt the teams chemistry. I wanna get Larsson in there ASAP.

I agree. There is a price for everything I suppose, but I'd rather see this kid develop in NJ. The sky is the limit with him. NJ has always been solid on scouting which leads me to think there is no way they move a 4th overall pick two years after selection. If they do move him, the return had better bring out the "O" face.

plus after the other year where they went in the season knowing someone would have to go with a black cloud on them for the whole time and Lou said he learned from it...

same thing now... seems pretty obvious that they will have to trade a dman so...

I'm sorry, but ,if we were really high on Larsson he would be playing right now whether or not we had to showcase Tally or Volch.
