Why?

I understand that there is a limit to how many more points a defensman can achieve. Historically players also struggle to be consistently delivering at such extreme levels (e.g. both Sedins been above 100 points once each for then to "drop back" to more realistic levels). That said, Erik Karlsson is still young and developing. I'm not sure if I have ever seen a defensman with that much natural attacking ability. I honestly think he might break the 100 points barrier at one point - playing for the right team.

Ability wise I think he is even more dominant among defensmen (in attack) than Crosby is among forwards (not saying Karlsson is better than Crosby - just relative to other defensemen).
