The Elite Dylan Larkin

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

We finally get the next superstar to come along since Zetterberg and Datsyuk, and you guys all want to downplay it. It's hilarious. In the words of Dany Heatley, "He's a f%$king all-star"!!!

Not a single person has said anything bad about Larkin. EVERYONE has said the kid is good, and has a bright future.

What is baffling is that you are putting the kid at a level he is just not at YET. Myself and 90% of this board think he is going to be elite one day, but he is not at the level of a Seguin, Ovie, Crosby etc. as of January 8th, 2015. I would put money on it that if you asked Larkin himself, he would agree with this statement.

Stop trying to create a narrative that the board are trying to downplay him, we are not, people are just annoyed at how over the top you are.

John Scott will have played more All Star games than Zetterberg and as many as Crosby. How weird is that?

Hahaha that's glorious :P

Has Zetterberg really not played in one though? Somewhat surprising if true. I think that plus Crosby only playing in one might be more weird than the whole John Scott thing

Larkin has quickly become one of my favorites and he's been excellent for us this season. But to come here and label him as an elite already is a little ridiculous and jumping the gun. I agree with those saying that he'll be elite in the future, I can see it. I just can't label him (or any other rookie this season) that today.

With that said, I'm rooting hard for this kid to win the Calder.

Weird yes, but technicality obviously. Didn't Zetterberg play in the 2007 game though? I consider Crosby a 10-time all star though, i'm sure he'll pass Scott someday in terms of all star games played.

No, he pulled out of the 2007 game.

So what's your opinion now Jonas? Still elite?

Larkin needs to bulk up and not rely too much on his speed because the opposition has adapted to him

loool losch bitte raus

What are you talking about? Larkin is strong on the puck. That's not his problem. His problem was pure scoring. Besides, he's 6'1 and weighs 190 at a very young age. That's a good size in today's hockey considering he'll naturally gain more weight by the time he hits his prime.

....But, of course without Tippett, I'd still like to see Larkin as #2C with AA on his Wing. His other wing I'm not sure, but maybe Svech if he starts in Detroit?

I want to see Mantha-Larkin-AA......let them gain some chemistry now so in a few years they could be a good top line, or a great second line.
