Albany winning fewer games that are decided by shootout? Of course, we don't much care about that, but the coaching staff might.

Larsson isn't really that kind of defenceman though. He has enough offensive skill to chip in with a goal every now and then, but I think the overwhelming majority of his points will be assists, especially if he plays on the PP. I don't see him having reliable shootout moves.
