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.
Because playing 6 minutes a night is worse for his development compared to 15 or 16 minutes while playing the PP and PK and in all different game situations.
