Perhaps more importantly, he doesn't seem a "set the world afire" type. He's no super-dynamic star player. While there is wiggle room with regards to his offensive upside, we more or less know what kind of player he will be at the next (or any) level.

Take Pysyk for example: he wasn't setting Rochester afire with his scoring, yet he was clearly ready for the NHL when called upon. His game translates to immediate NHL success via a heady two-way game, the same as Larsson's will.
