PDB was quoted as saying something along the lines of "If [Larsson] hadn't already played 30+ games in Albany he'd probably be sent down".

And I'm pretty sure Larsson also said something like he'd rather stay and practice with the big squad and the coaches.

You don't make a roster change when the team is winning. After the team loses I expect Larsson to be put in.


I expect him to be put in Saturday, win or lose.

Oh right, Sunday, I forgot NJ actually plays on Sunday now. Well, then, maybe not - for some reason I thought NJ had a back to back.

You don't draft 1st year impact d-men. Lidstrom wasn't even in the league as an 18,19 year old kid.
Nieds played all of 4 games.

If you want an impact player, you draft a forward; and at the #4 spot; you already missed out on the 1st year impact players.
Larsson is ridicouslousy young and looked amazing for his age and experience.

I don't see the need to trade him for a less-upside, more developed player or someone else's cancer.

No but if you dont have speed you'd better have strength. Im wondering if this is the issue thats driving lou. is the kid doing enough in the weight room and with the plyometrics?
are we jumping the gun on adam? probably but its a messageboard lol what I saw mostly was a kid having to adjust to the wingers speed in the NHL. when his gap control got tight he was vulnerable and late with his step out pivot speed on the edge was hurting him
behind the net was spotty too, doesnt have the burst to bring it out but showed good hands


These are my thoughts exactly.

If they don't play him soon, thy should send him down. Of course the kid is gonna say he wants to stay up if that is what is happening. Ask him again after 10 games of sitting if that happens.

@RenLavoieRDS

French Renaud had it right. Canadiens offer to PK Subban, 2.2 million first year, 2.9 for next season.


I can see where hes coming from a bit. Subban is most definitely worth more than that.

If you could work a trade for one of Edmonton's top young forwards, I'd say yes.

Otherwise, no.

Yea that is what I said but I would much rather keep him. I feel like Eberle, Gagner, and Hemskey are probably the only touchable top forwards. You could make a case for Magnus Paajarvi who was a first round top 10 pick but he still hasen't panned out in EDM.

http://www.rumeursde...lyers-pk-subban

its french but it's saying that the Flyers have inquired about Subban and that couturier could potentially be MTL's target... MTL and Philly talked last year when the Webber attempt failed and Couturier was in play but Laviolette told holmgren to take out his home from any deal.

so thats that... i hate subban and i hate mtl but id HATE to have see him with the Flyers, he's a PERFECT Flyers player, and i'd hate to have to play against him 6 times a year fvck sakes

Meh, that doesn't matter. They'd change their tune on the guy the minute he donned one of those bile-inducing orange sweaters.

I wouldn't give up Larsson for Ovechkin. Ovechkin strikes me as one of those guys who peaked early and I'd rather keep the young cost-controlled potential star.

Ovechkin's contract may be one of the worst in the league. I think he definitely needs some new surroundings, but absolutely not here b/c of contract value and length. We have the better Russian.

Ovechkin to Toronto lol

The fact that there's still people that boo Kovalchuk in the stands is enough for me to say HELL NO to bringing in Ovechkin.

Okay, I'll bite - I'd trade Adam Larsson for John Carlson straight up.

Obviously I'm being somewhat facetious, but the potential answers to this topic question, almost by necessity of design, need to be based entirely on relative value. Sure, I'm open for trading Larsson for the right price. But what is the right price?
