As for Phillips/Cowen, they did play quite a bit together. Kuba/Karlsson were not the primary shutdown duo. They logged the most minutes however they did not primary face the toughest opposition. That's not to say that they ONLY played soft minutes. But Karlsson was not typically out there against the Kovalchuks/Ovechkins etc. (on top of the games I watched on TV I also went to see 5+ games live, he stepped off the ice nearly every time a star player stepped on).
Karlsson is a great hockey player, but there's a reason a lot of people don't believe that he deserves the Norris and not all of those people are as uneducated as you might think.
Pierre Lebrun and Bob Mackenzie think he is worthy - that's good enough for me.
I have a half season ticket in Ottawa and I can tell you he deserves it.
