ADD - in a market where you get put on a pedestal for shutting out the perennial last place Oilers I can only imagine what you guys would be saying if Karlsson was a Leaf.

If you subscribe to the theory that if he's playing offense, then he's not having to play defense, then he's without comparable really. A lot of thinking on defense has definitely shifted from has to be great in own end, to just not having to play there much.

I'd have him top 3 just because he dominates a facet of the game like none of his peers do and I'd say he's as good as Doughty and Subban too if you're looking at the sum of all parts.

On offence, he's deadly, no question, and, yes, that helps his team from the defensive standpoint, in that they have the puck more when he's on the ice. However, he's not the type of guy you go to when you're up by 1 and have to deal with a faceoff in the defensive zone in the last minute of the game - and, really, a traditional Norris calibre defenceman would be used in that situation.

9 out of 10 times Karlsson is on the ice in the situation you just described.

He's one of the best defensemen of the past 25 years already and his best is yet to come. His minimum 2 Norris trophys basically has him as a HHOF lock already - it's painfully funny watching you guys blinded by your hatred of all things Sens trying to cheapen how good he is.

Average defensemen don't win 2 Norris trophies. They just don't.

In a league where the Norris voters are super impressed by point totals, they do. The Norris hasn't been a defensive award for years. It's basically become the "best offensive defenceman" award.

I mean, if he was good defensively, you'd think his coach would use him on the PK more.

If he played on the PK he would be playing 30 + minutes a night.

Karlsson is on pace for 101 pts. And his third Norris.

Despite being entirely average, at best, defensively.

That's just the Leaf nerd in you talking - the hockey nerd in you knows that statement is a big pile of bs
