Adam Larsson wasn't touted as a offensive defenseman, his decent numbers so far must come as a bit of a surprise. He had 9 points in 37 games in SEL last year and 13 points in 33 games in NHL this year. As we all now NHL is a better league...
He was described as a twoway d-man, he has had his ups and downs this season as expected for a player playing the year after his draft. His strenght in the longrun is supposed to be his defensive play not his offense.
Time will tell if he reaches Staals level of play or surpas it.
