I think they should let Larkin get a taste, whether it's at wing or centering the 3rd line.
(Richards - Sheahan - Larkin - Glendening)
It's not going to ruin his development if he gets a handful of games.
EDIT: I think he'd lose waiver exemption way before the number of games to keep him out of contention for the Calder next year. He certainly should not be kept up long enough that he would lose his waiver eligibility.
He can't lose his waiver exemption, 160 games for that. But if he plays 11 or more, his exemptions would lower from 5 years to 3. Though I think if he's good enough for 11+ games this year, the odds of him spending more than 3 years in GR is pretty slim. The slide rule would be more likely to keep Larkin under 11 games, but I don't know that the Wings would be too concerned about that either.
