As for Cowen, those beleiving that he can step in and replace Kuba are fooling themselves. Since January last year Cowen played 3rd pairing minutes...
wrong. If shot blocking and physical play were the only important things in defensive play, Luke Schenn would be the best defensive D in the league while Karlsson would be the worst.

Cowen is the best realistic option we have. He's 21 with one pro season under his belt, he can improve believe it or not. He is also played his best hockey with Karlsson.

The puck on Karlsson's stick = good
