Reed Larson is one of the most under rated offensive defencemen of the 1980s. Larson scored the 5th most points amongst defencemen from 1979-80 to the 1988-89 season. Larson spent the majority of his career with the Detroit Red Wings. The Red Wings of the 70s and 80s were not the same organization that they are today. They were a running joke and often referred to as the "Dead Wings". During Larson's ten seasons with the Wings, the team had a .367 win percentage and had a losing season each year. Had Reed Larson played on a contending team, he might be more recognized today. Larson finished his career as a journeyman, playing with 5 teams in his final three seasons before playing overseas in Italy. Mr. Larson signed three of three plus an index card, thanked me for my latter and advised me to stay warm. Thank you Mr. Larson.
