People need to re-evaluate what's been said today and think about it. The Panthers aren't trying to snag Nugent-Hopkins from Edmonton, if Edmonton wants him, they'll take him, no questions asked...that's not whats being discussed.
The only people that are going to be saying that Larsson is our guy are the ones that want Larsson and the only thing they have to back that up with is when Tambellini went to Sweden to watch Larsson play, he said he played really well and is a solid defender etc. but that whole thing gets blown out of proportion.
