In Topic: Dylan Larkin turning pro... will play for GR immediately

Yesterday, 06:06 PM

Saying that Larkin will be a wing is just as silly as saying Pulkkinen will be a center. He won't.

I don't follow our prospects extremely closely, so I'm sure you know more about them than I do. However I did go to one Michigan game this year and for about half of the game Larkin played wing.

Wow, not sure what you guys are complaining about. The rest of the league passed on him because he is a known slacker. We thought we found a gem, but what a surprise, he's a slacker. So yes, after high hopes it's very very disappointing.


He's obviously the type of guy you need to bust all the way down to nothing, before you can build him up to his potential. Chances are he'll never play hard enough in NA, so he'll make a decent living playing in Europe.

I sure hope I am wrong, but Im not.

I'm not sure I've seen anything up to this point that indicates he's a slacker. He came off a severe injury and had a  year he himself was disappointed in. His comments sure don't seem to indicate he isn't willing to work hard to get better.

I don't think it's fair to make any conclusions about the NHL career of a 20 year old who is still playing in his first year in the minors, especially after missing the first couple months with a broken leg.


This. While I am slightly disappointed I also still think pretty highly of him. He's adjusting to a different game and probably can't play the same way he has been.

To be honest, I didn't think any player was truly that bad these playoffs. Just nobody was truly great, or stepped it up as a hero


Exactly how I feel. I thought they were invisible last years playoffs, but this year they were fine, just not outstanding.

I hate to say it everyone except Petr should be fair game in a trade


It's knee jerk reactions like these and many worse that I expect that drive me to leave the forum for a few weeks, lol.
