What We Know About Adam Larsson-- NHL Ready?

 

This is a little late I know and I know most of us have already done our research on Larsson, but I'm curious to see if people think he is ready for NHL action now. I personally believe he's more than ready. He's young yes (18) but he's spent from 2009-2011 on the Swedish Elite team, he was nominated for Rookie of the Year in 2011, tied a single season record for most goals in a season under the age of 18. In 2010 he was selected as the best defencemen in the Worlds U18 Championships and lastly in his 2009-10 season he posted 4G 13A and 17pts, now being compared to Nicklas Lidstrom -- fair comparison? I think Larsson has a LONG way to go before he can start to be compared to Lindstrom-- 12 time NHL allstar, olympic gold medalist, 11 time nominated 7? time winner of the Norris Trophy. winner of the conn smyth and 4 time stanley cup winner. The guy is a legend. It's not to say Larsson won't develop into an elite player (no pun intended) which I truly believe he will, but to compare him to Lindstrom is ehhhhh....

Also I believe Lou said if he were to change anything now it would be by subtracting, hopefully a deal is on the horizon with Parise, but would signing Larsson to a contract this year be wise given our current cap situation? Or is Lou looking to trade maybe a clarkson, or zubs (brings too much value to the devils to get rid of in my opinion)?
