Works both ways.
I'm sure your shiny crystal ball must be great to have but saying what "would" have happened in some alternate universe is akin to being a babbling fool. How does anyone base an arguement on that? You do realize that Ottawa was in fact better than Montreal and Karlsson did on fact win a Norris. Your assumption that having Karlsson on the Habs makes no sense what so ever based on what he actually did accomplish in real life.
Why berate a kid who's obviously an extremely talented young budding star? Because he's not a Hab he must suck and be inferior to the guys we have? It's not a bad thing to say a player Ina different team is good. No one will think you're any less of a Hab fan. Saying that Markov is a better option than Karlsson is just about one of the most homer comments I can think of. I mean why would a 22 year old Norris trophy winner be more desirable than a 34 year old who's had two major knee surgeries and barely played in the past two years? Because one is a Hab and the other isn't? If you want to believe that, have fun with that.
