When Zubov was 20 he was still playing in Russia but he scored 11 points/36 games. The next season he split time pretty close to 50/50 in the AHL/NHL and the rest is history. Granted Zubov did tear it up when he hit the AHL at 21 years old scoring 36 pts in 30 games.

So Larsen when he was 20 (last year) had 11 points/43 games (split 2 games in Dallas and the rest in SEL). 7 fewer games for Zubov at the same age to reach the same point total. Larsen so far has 16 points in 40 games. So far Larsen's development slope may be a tad slower than Zubov's but it is way to early to call this one yet. And hell we are comparing a kid to one of the greatest defenseman of all time, hardly fair.
