I have heard a Karlsson comparison a few times now. Karlsson DID just win the Norris. That's why I don't really lik the NHL comparisons because they tend to just focus on style of play.

So would I be accurate to say Rielly is a PMD right now, but if he develops his defensive game he could become a star in the league?

If he doesn't improve his defensive game, he will probably be at best a PPQB?

Edit: BTW thanks for the reply.
