Watching him play in the preseason games I realized he was much closer to being ready than previously assumed.
Not sure.. I'm a bit confused at this point. The Babcock/Holland in me tells me its too early if he stayed up here long term. The excited fan guy in me tells me its not.
But I'm easily convinced so I guess we will see.
I think a fair assessment can only be made after he plays a few regular season games. If he shines.. Then I guess you can't really argue if he should be sent down..
The problem with Jurco situation was he played 4th line.. If Larkin is playing first line with Zetterberg, I honestly can't imagine a better way to groom up a player for the NHL
The thing is too, that he already is very disciplined and you can tell he works hard on his game. If he can learn from a guy like datsyuk or z at 19 he will be that much better, that much faster. Yes probably the perfect candidate for them to groom
