Crazy Hypothetical question of the day (Karlsson as a forward)

(Before you read, just take my word I have all the confidence in the world in Karlsson as a D-man)..

If Rundblad pans out as "The next Karlsson, but Bigger" and Cowen actually shows good potential offensively, AND Wiercioch pans out as a decent puck mover... (Yes I said Hypothetical)

Do you think we should try Karlsson out as a forward?

This kid reminds me of Alfredsson to a key, the only difference is their positons, obviously Karlsson is D, and Alfy is a winger, but what if we had a replacement for Alfredsson in the last place we looked (on our team and quarterbacking a powerplay he is on..

Obviously we all know Karlsson's offensive awareness is otherworldly... And yes, he has taken flack for maybe not being the best defensive player in the world ()..

But.. would it not be interesting to see what this speedy little trickster could do as a winger for Spezza.. (I am sure his history as a d-man would carry over to create a defensively responsible winger).

This also.. does NOT mean he couldn't take the point on a powerplay.
