He made the team (and this is the Devils we're talking about) on merit as an 18 year old. For the first 3 months of the season, he was the BEST DEFENSEMAN on the Devils. He played 65 games and led Devils D on points, 6 points behind Zidlicky in roughly the same amount of games! NINETEEN YEARS OLD.

He may end up as the Brian Campbell instead of the Keith or Seabrook, but that's not a slight against him. He won't be flashy, but he's the guy you can trust in any situation and with his efficient style, he could be a huge minute eater. You build your defense around guys like Larsson.
