I kind of want to talk about the people that think Larsson is slow....they have no fucking clue. When this KID figures it out, he will determine the pace of the game. His play, the good and the bad gives me a hard-on that is how good he is.

He is a machine. He slows the game down is the only time I would use the word slow in a sentence with him.

It's mind-boggling that he is 19 and has the poise and confidence that he does when he hasn't even scratched the surface of what he is capable of yet.

Speed has nothing to do with flatfootedness. He gets coned sometimes. He's also in his 18 year old season, honestly, what do you expect? I think people get too caught up in what he does and don't realize he's developmental..... and he's also playing his first full season on the small rink.

This guy ain't supposed to be their #1 defenseman, no matter what Trots spews.

I can't wait to see him play in his prime. My favorite part is that there isn't a team in the league that has better coaches to teach him. The thought of Robinson and Stevens instructing him makes me so happy.

And Larry is absolutely in love with him. It's great.

On HF, if he makes a mistake, they are ALL over him lmao.

Oh dear god. Geez it's gotten bad over the last year and a half. haha

Look past the mistakes, look past the rookie year this kid is incredible.

He's got a foul mouth though. His mother needs to wash it out with soap. :D

BTW we need to agree on what will be a sarcasm emoticon.

I've had no problems with him this year. He's already a workhorse. I expect mistakes from a 19 year old rookie.

Every time he goes back to the bench and Larry comes up to him and talks to him puts a smile on my face, even if it is after a mistake. I sense a great student teacher relationship and once Stevens is ready to take on a bigger role I'm sure he will be able to do the same thing.

Larsson has also shown a tendency to step up for a hit some times. I like that.

Oh yeah, it's getting worse and worse, it's unbelievable. Last night was really the straw that broke the camels back. njdevsfn95 is going to bring up our concerns there. It's like, when you cancel your cable, someone wants you to stay they'll offer anything lol.

Yeah, Larry is always talking to him, always giving him a pat on the back. I wish there was a way to get Slava back.

He'd fit in here fucking great. No one cares if you swear. He's been a revelation and I'll be honest, going into this draft, I wasn't sold on him at all.

You guys gotta remember, I remember Niedermayer's rookie season. I was 21 then. This kid is good.

Slava means too much to the KHL, it would never happen.

You know how good he is when other team's announcers are praising him.

I thought he'd be gone which is why I wanted Hamilton. We really lucked out and Conte's and Lou's face showed that when he came up to the stage.

Actually, if you think about it, the Blues got us Larsson. If they don't make the Johnson for Stewart deal, they draft Larsson instead of COL lol! So really, the Blues are a gift that keep on giving.

could you imagine Larsson with Pietrangelo and Johnson. That would have taken all the pressure off EJ. Wet dream.

Well, that's not how it would have happened lol. COL would have him with Shattenkirk instead, because they had that pick.

Yeah you're right. Was premature with that, now I've got a mess to clean up...

for whatever reason I thought the 2nd pick was from the blues but it was the other pick.

This summer, I had no intentions of Larsson even making the team

Needless to say I've been more than plesantly suprised.....mistakes are going to happen, but the ones he's made are ones I would expect a 19 year old to make

Who did they get with their pick? I forget who it was, to be honest. After they made that deal to get Johnson they were awful. In fact, I think he might be hurt this year.

The guy I wanted was Landeskog and he's been a beauty too. But ****, RNH is doing something special. He'll make Skinner look bad.

i was listening to the Marek and Puck Daddy podcast and Marek went out of his way to praise Larsson, saying he probably would have gotten rookie of the month but RNH is just putting up spectacular numbers

i love the kid. probably the only d-man that can execute a crisp breakout pass to start a rush on this middling thing we call a defense. he had a couple real good passes during the Jets game the other night, made me hard in the pants.

But he'll never capture our hearts like skinner as he lacks the boyish good looks and infectious smile. Skinner <3

Seriously though RNH has been insane this year. I was in the camp that thought he would struggle out of the gate cause of his size but now I just look like a fool. Never doubted the talent was there but never thought we'd see it blossom this fast. Freaking amazing.

I was hesitant about the size as well. But sometimes, you're just ready. He didn't have anything left in junior, that's for sure. So it was either stagnate in the W, or play in the N and take the bumps. They made the right choice. He'll have his off nights, and probably won't score at a PPG, but damn, he's going to be a beauty.
