Like I said before: you don't bash the winningest goaltender in Detroit Red Wings history just because you believe he is done.
That isn't being eager, it's being selfish and stupid.
Well I might not do it and you might not do it but Larsson see's where he and the team can benefit and spoke his mind when asked about it. Keep in mind that something is always lost in translation... perhaps in Swedish it didn't come across as harsh?!
