ATLANTIC CITY - Playing the right point on an Albany Devils' power play the other night, Adam Larsson wristed a shot that missed the net, banged off the end boards and caromed all the way to the neutral zone on the left-wing side.

 

It looked like a Hershey Bears penalty killer had a clear shot at racing forward to pick up the puck and speed in for a breakaway … but then, seemingly out of nowhere, Larsson was right there with his stick extended to retrieve the puck just in the nick of time.

 

This was a saved scoring opportunity not many defenseman at any level can pull off, but Larsson's speed, skill, size and ability to read plays allowed him to make it look easy.

"Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do."

If he isn't back up the minute the olympic break ends, Lou needs to be committed.

Yikes, a whole lot of frustration in Larsson's words, but he navigates the interview well. 

 

Kowalsky comes off very reasonable. He says in so many words that Larsson doesn't belong in Albany and helps shine light that Lou's really messing this up (not DeBoer, but Lou). Lou does not have this logjam-on-D situation figured out, AT ALL, and every 2-3 weeks, one young player or another ends up being the victim.

The title is a little misleading- it reads like he's frustrated that the devils have him in the ahl, when in fact he flat out states that he isn't frustrated at the organization but at the untimely injury.

Anyway, Larsson isn't going to have to wait too much longer. I'd be surprised if he isn't up very soon, and after this season he won't have to worry about being sent down again. Hopefully his time down there makes him hungrier here.

Bring him up or trade him. No reason to have him in Albany at this point. Commit or cut ties.

I was just going to mention that. Not to mention that the article says he spoke with Oduya who said that the Devils as an organization were very good for his development.

Amen. Really like TG, he's incredibly thorough and much better than Chere imo.

But Randy seems to address some of the fans' interests for a change, asks some tougher questions.

It's nice to have them both.

Re: Larsson.. Writings on the wall here imo. He needs to be up here after the break. If he's not you might as well trade him if you're going to play awful vets instead.

Exactly! This is a joke. Larsson needs to stay down there and learn.  He should've put his time in the last 2 seasons.

Stay down there and learn what? To get faster??

 

Judging from Kowalsky's words, I'd say general consensus (outside of Lou's office) is that he's outgrown Albany as far as maturity goes. Just needs some NHL playing time, it's that simple really.

Cool to learn a bit more about Larsson -- the perfectionist aspect for example -- I kind of get the feeling with him he just needs to find the right mentor or teamate to bring the best of him and help him reach that next level. 

 

Kowalski will get a coaching/assistant job in the NHL at some point in the near future.

He had a fantastic mentor in Larry Robinson... Too bad Larry's family lives in California.

He is still a young 21 years old, players 2 months younger than him would just be in their first pro season. I still believe Larsson has the ability to be elite, the reins have to come off so he can join the rush and make mistakes. The rewards will outweigh the mistakes.

Jeez people are impatient around here. He's 21 and playing great in the AHL. It's much better to have him playing the Olympic break in Albany then sitting around Newark. He'll be up after the deadline either way.

Msweet but what do you think? Or are you not sure? I'm interested in your input either way. I'm interested in devils (minor and major) but just not engaged and I like to read your opinions whether I agree or it. I fear we agree though: btsom. :evil: at this very second I'm sort of flummoxed by everyone and everything devils. They're here so I don't miss them. I just feel unclear I guess.
