Why is that exactly? How is learning to play a defensive game at the NHL level on the 4th line a bad thing for him? I'm not saying playing in Rochester would be bad for him. It wouldn't be. But being on the 4th line in the NHL, getting worked onto the PK units and possibly usurping Porter as the season progresses are all possibilities and none seem bad for Larsson. If we were taking about Grigs and his one dimensional game I could see your argument. But Larsson is a two way center/wing that could very much learn things in a bottom 6 role.

Btw he centered Girgs in the playoffs. Lets not start pretending he doesn't play the position.
