And I agree with tycobb, Larsson should put up more than 40p in his prime, on regular basis.
At first I thought you were talking about Larsson being a poor man's Pietro. I feel better now that I actually read what you wrote.

I'm on the "WHOOO POINTS FOR LARSSON!" train. I see him a lot like Hedman. They both have very underrated (at least these days, for Hedman) offensive skill imo because they entered the league and were expected to play defense before offense. Hedman's offense shined in the KHL and it's starting to blossom in Tampa as well, and I think Larsson's gonna have the same sorta path.

Call me crazy, but I could see Larsson pushing 60 points in his best year. He's just got that vision to make things happen effortlessly. However, if Merrill and Gelinas both end up in Jersey (which I'm not saying is likely), and they end up on the top PP, it's gonna be more difficult for Larsson to have those big point seasons.
