Came across an article in Aftonbladet, he says he is determined to compete for the backup job with Jimmy Howard next season. He also says that he will stay in america even if he has to play in the minors. He sees the progress of Erik Ersberg and thinks he should have an equal chance to make it to the big club (which i think he has, he's a better goalie with more potential than ersberg, for sure.)

Brave decision by the young man. I wish him all the best! smile.gif

That's the spirit, good for him to come over and get comfortable with the smaller ice. thumbup.gif

Edit: "Come over" sounds kinda funny, I'm nowhere near NA at the moment. Oh well. laugh.gif

let's hope he won't turn out to be the next Stefan Liv.

I went to buy some camouflage pants the other day but I couldn't find any.

Anybody have any tape/stats on this kid? Could he really have a shot at the backup next year?
It is not a sprint, yet a marathon.

I can see Jimmy Howard being a solid backup next year and will play maybe 15-20 games to give osgood a rest when needed. As for Larsson, I think he should pay his dues like Jimmy has and wait a couple season and see what happens.

thats great news!!!
i think he will adjust really well and might have a shot at the backup if he tries ahrd enough.

I think that Howard is a solid hoss cat of a goalie but Larsson does seem to be equally good. Either way OZZY should have a solid backup and thats what we need
