Organizational Comments: "He's really matured the last two or three years. He's ready to come over. It's coming over and getting adapted to the smaller ice. The shots are coming at you a little quicker." Wings Asst. GM Jim Nill
What GRC says: 2008-09: Larsson followed up a monster first half with a good second. His numbers dipped the latter part of the season, mostly attributed to the decimated lineup he played behind. He was laid low by a concussion and tried to struggle through it before being shut down. He was eventually cleared by the medical staff to back-up Howard, but was still not quite ready to play. He is expected to take the starter's role in Grand Rapids next season.
Summer 2008:Larsson is the real deal, and it should not take the young, skilled netminder long to work his way up the ladder. Daniel was passed over in the draft twice before blossoming and drawing the Wings interest.
Role: Starting Netminder
Projection: NHL Starter
