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.
These are both fairly weak points. Takeaways are one of those stats like hits that magically gets recorded differently in different arenas. So you an throw that one out. And Karlsson is going to have to have another season at that level to be spoken of in the same breath as Coffey.
