I don't remember Larionov ever dominating in the same way Kuznetsov did. I don't know how Kuznetsov's career will shape up, but what he has shown in these three games is nothing short of spectacular. Larionov was always more of a complimentary player to some great scorers he played with. When he did not have such scorers on his wings - he could disapear for long stretches. Kuznetsov is more of a complete player IMHO.
