I don't think I've ever heard Larsson described as a 'gritty' player, but I guess we'll see.

Regarding whether grit and toughness are valued on a team? Absolutely - but it's nowhere near as valuable as the skill that Chicago has; that's what won them the cup. Oh, and goaltending. Crawford is not a #1 NHL goaltender.

Edit: How toughness/grit relates to the Wild? Let's worry about getting those skill players before signing a bunch of grinders.
