no knock on karlsson but i prefer subban's all around game with the offensive upside still there. karlsson just does whatever the hell he wants and expects his team mates to cover for him. im exaggerating a bit of course, but you get the idea. and with subban, we have the added bonus of knowing he's clutch in the playoffs and when it counts.
i didn't like it when people said - and still say - that the coaches are reigning in subban, i see it as a good thing. that other side of subban will always be there, better to teach them defense when they are young.
and "karlsson will get better defensively with age, don't worry..." same thing was said of green and he's still lost in his own zone. and lets not forget that the motto in ottawa this season basically is: "have fun". i don't think you can ice a
winning team when one defenseman's running around making being out of position into a hobby
i hope im not sounding like im bashing karlsson because that's not what im trying to do at all. the choice is close, but i chose subban over karlsson because he has more rounded skills than karlsson.
he is exciting to watch though
@nittany: karlsson better than subban defensively? o'****ing lawl
