Thing about Karlsson is that he would step in an make an immediate impact, maybe enough for the Bruins to go all the way THIS YEAR.

The kids value has gone down slightly since he was drafted, simply because he hasn't made an immediate impact yet unlike some of the other picks (Fowler, Hall, Skinner). He's all potential, but has a very high ceiling. A one for one trade with Karlsson is probably as fair as it gets. Ottawa gets their future star forward (and drafts their new star swede defenseman in June) and Bruins get a guy who can help them win now and can replace Seguin this coming draft also with Toronto's pick.
this, That is well said and what I was trying to get accross. I don't blame Boston for not wanting to make that deal, but I thought he would be the peice to put them over the top.
