Do not agree with Dumba at all.

He is a special player in that he brings a very special toolset. The Wild haven't had a player like him since forever. But don't forget, he still needs alot of work to do with his defensive game and his decision making.

But with Larsson, here you have a polished player who has succeeded against men in the SEL. He won rookie-of-the-year in the SEL, play on the WC team populated with NHL players.
He also captained the Swedish U-20 team to the gold medal, and was considered their key player.

He's very well built, plays with passion, plays a pretty much flawless two-way game with physicality and skill. He may not have top NHL potential, but he brings a blend of size, leadership, skill, mobility, and experience, you will be hardpressed to find anywhere else.
