I want Larkin to spend another year at U of M. I got to watch a lot of his games and while he dominated play sometimes on certain shifts, it was exactly that. On certain shifts. I'd love to see him get stronger and take another step forward before moving to the AHL. He should be dominating most shifts, if not all and controlling the play whenever he's on the ice. I want him to get used to being "The guy" on the ice before moving to more difficult competition. This year he had Hyman and typically it was Hyman that was "the guy" even though Larkin wasn't far behind. He will be a leader on the wings in the future and I want to see him practice being that at U of M first.
True that. If like to see more year in the NCAA and at least 1 in the minors before being called up. Plenty of older guys deserving of chances before him.
