Larsson is so highly sought after because he is NHL ready and thinks the game well. Erixon had 2 less points in his draft year then Larsson, the guy isn't going to blow anyone away offensively. Defensively he is great however.
As for the Sami Salo comparison, Salo is a very good defenseman still. I can see Larsson being better defensively and slightly better offensively.
My favorite comparison tonight was Jonas Brodin to Alex Edler, and they go on to say he isn't physical, and doesn't have a good shot.
EDIT: And it's amazing how the by far the unluckiest team in hockey, the Rangers, is a divisional rival with the luckiest, in the Devils. Before the lottery the statistic percentage of the Devils landing Larsson was .13% or something ridiculous. It's a cruel joke that I will have to listen to these idiots go on like they think they know about hockey even during the summer.
