You're talking about the player that led defensemen in takeaways by a clear margin. No one impacts the game more consistently then the player that carries the puck the most.

If Karlsson plays like that his whole career the difference between him and Coffey would be the difference in scoring between era and how many team and individual awards they win. And not playing with Lemieux and Gretzky.
