Given how terrible the PP d-men have been, that reads like a backhanded compliment. I also think you're greatly overstating what Larsen does. Controls tempo? I don't see it. I see a guy who largely plays hot potato with the puck. He seldom does that things that set tempo the way I'm used to seeing.

Really though, Dillon has been the best on the PP, but the problem is he's also one of the key PKers. They can't ask him to do too much, and he's more useful on the PK because the alternative to him playing it is seeing guys like Goligoski and Larsen who are really struggling in their own end.
