Even if Pomminville gets 70 points a year for us, I'm not sure he's worth our first and second rounders as well as two very, VERY good prospects. I think Buffalo is going to be loving this trade in the coming years. Hackett has the potential to be a very solid starting goalie in the NHL and Larsson WILL be a Captain in this league one day and he will win a cup. Everywhere he goes he wins. Byrnas to team Sweden to Houston. The guy is an absolute winner at every level. Guys like that always succeed because they want it more than 99% of the other players.
Buffalo fans trust us, Larsson is gonna be a heck of a player. Great work ethic, leadership ability, and scoring punch too. Future 2nd line center behind Hodgson.
Hackett may turn into a starter too. Great athleticism, but his positioning and reflexes still need some work. A top 10 goalie prospect in the NHL though.
Agreed. Larsson is the guy that wins you Cups. He's the glue for a group of forwards. He's been the best forward in Houston (Wild's minor league affliate) for the last several months and this has been his first season in NA.
