Think about it from another perspective. Do you really trust the core of Latendresse, Spezza, Alfreddson, Phillips, Regin, Michalek, Methot, and Gonchar to make it though the season without missing significant time? Those players (Regin and Lats excepted) are our most important players. Our entire veteran portion of our top-6 and 1/2 of our top-4 is old and/or injury prone. Karlsson is the only significant player on this team that isn't a walking band-aide.

If Jason Spezza strains his back picking up groceries again, Kyle "29 point career high" Turris would be our top centre. That is beyond scary. Karlsson, while not injury prone, weighs less than 200lbs and is expected to play 20+ minutes on a playoff contender while attracting the worst intentions of every team we will play.


Next season could be a bloodbath. We could finish last.
