No Larkin may never be who Eichel is, but to get a prospect like Larkin when we did and is on the same radar as Eichel is exciting.
I'm not trying to get too excited but it's hard not to, he is ready and for him to leap frog our system the way we run it is exciting.
I do understand the Jurco worries, but this isn't Jurco... Larkin has already shown more speed and drive then Jurco on my mind. Jurco was famous for YouTube stick handling videos and I believe can be a good player for us, but Larkin surpassed rookie records of Toews, Parise, Kessel, and so on... It's not the same scenario.
I feel he is the player that feeds on the pressure and being put in a situation he seems underwhelming in and owns it...
WJC, Michigan, he excels and exceeds, he seems to love the pressure...
Sorry for the long message, but Al aboard the Hype train
