I know most D men take longer.
I was talking about Adam Larsson of New Jersey, E-L is very good too.
oh yeah Adam Larsson. Saw him in the swedish junior team a lot and in SAIK which is a team in SEL. Good skater, strong and has a very powerful shot. But dunno about his vision and positioning. It will come I guess.
The odd part about Adam Larsson is how big he was at just 16. He was probably 190cm/90kg or so already that age. Pure beast. Already at 17-18 he looked bigger and stronger than most seniors.
I think New Jersey got a solid player there. Something to build on for the future.
