Ideal D-partner for Karlsson
Who do you guys consider to be the ideal D-partner for Karlsson? One of the names that came to mind for me initially was Josh Gorges, because of his steady, stay-at-home style. Anyone else?

MVP Tom Pyatt 01-30-2013 10:40 PM

Marc Methot?

FolignoQuantumLeap 01-30-2013 10:40 PM

Jared Cowen.

But if you're letting me pick anyone I'm gonna take Chris Pronger in his 20s.

General Granny* 01-30-2013 10:40 PM

MArc Methot.

Vaclav Varada 01-30-2013 10:41 PM

Someone like Laddy Smid

On the Sens, Jared Cowen.

In the league, Zdeno Chara.

All time, Larry Robinson.

Erik Karlsson is Erik Karlsson's ideal partner. We must invent cloning technology!

SevenOfSpades 01-30-2013 10:46 PM

I really want to see a EK-OEL pairing next olympics.

But in reality it needs to be someone who can shoot the puck, and is smart enough to give Karlsson the puck at the right time (and is capable of it). Methot is neither of that.

Vaclav Varada 01-30-2013 10:48 PM

Smid has really underrated puck skills.

La Flame 01-30-2013 10:48 PM

Methot or Cowen

HavlatMach9 01-30-2013 10:50 PM

Does anyone know if Cowen is a faster skater than Karlsson? Obviously Karlsson is the best skater, but the 6'5'' Cowen is scary fast as well.

Asquaredx2 01-30-2013 10:50 PM

Chara. You don't need someone fleetfooted because Karlsson can handle puck-rushing duties but if there is any one criticism of Methot it's that Karlsson would probably be even more dangerous on the ice if his d partner was more of a shooting threat.

That said Methot is not making that much money and we picked him up for Foligno. We should be ecstatic with his performance so far.

EDIT: Also, complaining about or criticizing anything when this team is 5-1-1 especially given the injuries we've had is mind-boggling.

OmniSens 01-30-2013 10:51 PM

Shea Weber.

Vaclav Varada 01-30-2013 10:53 PM

Brent Burns would probably be unreal with Karlsson too.

burf 01-30-2013 10:55 PM

Chara no question. Left hand D, best in the league defensively, and has a giant slapper and PPQB ability.

Of course, it's something that could never come to be, since the world would explode if it did.

The Fuhr* 01-30-2013 10:56 PM

Brent Seabrook

ReginKarlssonLehner 01-30-2013 10:59 PM

Cowen. This guy will be a star in the league and an even bigger star beside Karlsson.

CanadianHockey 01-30-2013 11:00 PM

Thirding Chara. That pairing would be unbelievably good.

Hopefully Cowen turns into a Chara-lite.

18Hossa 01-30-2013 11:02 PM

fourth-ing Chara

EssendonBombers 01-30-2013 11:04 PM

Someone as solid as Methot defensively, who will defer puck carrying duties to EK, and has a solid shot.

PatrickEaves 01-30-2013 11:06 PM

Ryan Suter.

Weber isn't the same defenseman without Suter covering for him. Think about how good Karlsson would look with Suter covering for him?

Asquaredx2 01-30-2013 11:06 PM

I don't think there's any hypothetical pairing in the league better than Chara - Karlsson. Best to be happy with what we have and not torment ourselves with these kind of fantasies.
