And if so, getting 1st line duty in Houston for at least a year could be better than just turning him into a NHL 3rd liner who can chip in 10-15 goals pure year. If we handle him right, he could be a 30 goal guy for us. Or at least as good and Setoguchi.

Coyle might have trouble with the speed of the NHL game at first. From what I seen, he's a solid player who knows where to be on the ice, but he's got to learn to dominate the AHL first.
Agreed with all of that. Good take.

I'm going to be disappointed if Larsson doesn't pick it up in the next couple months.
