I don't doubt that Larsen has the ability to earn a roster spot. You said he'd do it by beating out Fistric which doesn't make sense. I already assume the team would prefer Larsen over Fistric in a Top 6 role, but on paper, before training camp has started, it makes more sense to assume Fistric is a the current 7th D based on the other players under contract. Larsen is not going to win a roster spot just to sit in the press box.

I already said and obviously agree with you that Souray will have a impact on Larsen's roster spot this year. However, Souray can't end up as Dallas' 7th D and take a role similar to MA Bergeron. It's unlikely Dallas will play 7 D given GM Joe's desire to roll 4 lines. He either is a Top 6 defender or in the pressbox. Souray was signed to help bolster the PP. If he can't do that, Larsen obviously should be in the Top 6.
