Cut it out with being so defensive about the kid. Especially when you brought him up, I never said anything about him, and this is a thread about Johan Larsson.

It's not that hard of a leap to make. Our top center is struggling defensively against top guys because of his skating. He was heralded in juniors and minors for being a good two-way player. It hasn't translated, IMO because of his skating. Johan Larsson has many of the same qualities and was heralded in lesser leagues as a good two-way player. He also struggles with skating. Will his two-way game translate? I don't know. It's a legitimate concern.
