This is where we disagree, I see Larkin as a very good player... maybe OUR best center. BUT not a top center in the league. Much the way Kronwall is our #1D but isn't a true #1D, and as time passes he may not even be a true #2D at this point.

 

Lids probably helped Kronwell look better than he is.

Larkin is a better version of players we already have fast, smallish, skilled. Mantha has a skillset our is lacking... size and natural scoring ability.

I would trade Larkin for a clear #1 or soon to be #1 D. But I'd want a sweetener thrown in.

I don't hate Americans but if I have two players of more or less equal quality I'll take the Canadian every day of the week.

 

Larkin has proven himself in the NHL.  Mantha hasn't proven anything.

Boy the Americans are starting out strong.  Ugh.  I thought "grit" was a winning recipe?  Apparently skill matters a little more eh?

 

Things that are inexplicable to me about team USA:

1. Tortorella is the coach.

2. Byfuglien is playing offense in general, and scratched in particular.

3. None of Yandle, Kessel, or Ryan are on the team. 

 

Oh well.  There still the USA and I'm cheering for them.  I love grit by the way.
