Yeah, the "Karlsson as a forward" argument seems silly to me. Why would you, on a team that is already not terribly dominant at the moment (
), even think of risking the development of the one guy on the team that seems like he's the real deal by changing his position, that he is already pretty good at?
If you're worried about his defensive game, don't you think it would be easier to teach him how to be more positionally sound and better at the nuances of playing in his own zone, than to teach him an entirely new position alltogether? And I know the OP said he has no doubts about EK's defensive game, this is just in response to other criticisms I've heard on Karlsson as a justification to moving him up to play wing.
Also: why is it that every time I listen to the postgame shows on team1200, does someone inevitably ALWAYS call in with this question? Is it the same guy calling in every week fishing for a different answer, or is there actually a large contingent of Sens fan that want to see "Erik Karlsson: Mediocre Right Winger"?
