Unreal how the Canucks have 3 defencemens that outscored Larrson in points. how did he only end up with 18 points on that high powered scoring team?

give me a choice to add one player to our roster it easily be Trouba.

He doesn't play on the power play. He had more even strength points than any Canucks defenseman, and similar totals to Sekera (23) and Klefbom (21).

********. Klefbom does more work offensively than Larsson but Larsson is the guy on the Oilers who almost never makes a mistake defensively and allows his partner to take more chances for offense.

He's never going to get the respect he should because he plays such a reliable safe game and allows his partner to take more chances but that's OK. He's a rock on the blue line for Edmonton and clearly their top defender last season, at least in terms of playing defense.

Larsson just had an epic season. It's him for now but I'm pretty sure Trouba will surpass him in the coming years.
