People always say it's a DEFENSEmen well maybe it's been too long since Coffey and Orr because for the first time in decades we've got a guy who's an offensemen and there's ultimately nothing wrong about it.
Well if you are rating a player's overall impact on a game, you have to give credit to players that are capable of making plays that aren't just scoring plays. Karlsson isn't that much better than Doughty to make up the difference. He's a great defenseman, top-3 in the league, but he's no Paul Coffey.
