RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Daniel Larsson.
Larsson decided to return to Sweden this offseason, but the Red Wings have his NHL rights through the 2012-13 season. Put simply, he wasn't interested in playing a third season at Grand Rapids (AHL). He could enter the picture to back up Jimmy Howard in 2011-12 if Chris Osgood retires after the 2010-11 campaign as expected.
If the current arrangement holds with Chris Osgood and Ty Conklin holding the two roster spots in goal for the Wings, Larsson will spend this season in Grand Rapids (AHL), likely as the No. 2 behind Jimmy Howard. Detroit suddenly has three potential netminders of the future, although Howard is by far the most NHL-ready of the bunch. Larsson's an intriguing player to keep an eye on, as some scouts have compared him to Henrik Lundqvist.
