I'm not ready to annoint him as a Norris winner or anything, don't get me wrong, but his situation and Meszaros's situation in their first year are quite diffrent, which is all I was trying to point out.

Meszaros was playing protected minutes which led to his ridiculous +/-. He was quite impressive, but IMO Karlsson's performance is moreso. Despite not having played that many game in the top 4, during our franchise record streak Karlsson has been top 4, and has not been sheltered in any way shape or form.

There are no guarantees when it comes to potential, but since the healthy scratches, Karlsson has been playing excellent hockey.
