Remember when the excuse for him being poor defensively was his -30 rating? Sens fans said that was more of a team stat than an individual stat because he wasn't even the worse defenseman on his team in terms of +/-. But nope, that was the reason. It was brought up every thread. Funny, I don't see those people mentioning his +16 last season. Hmmm....
Coffey and Orr have both spoken out highly about Karlsson. Personally, I'll take their opinions, along with the PHWA, over random HF posters who claim that their favourite defenseman is better.
Yeah you are using quotes from other hockey players to defend yourself. That is where your argument has gone.
Let's get back to the discussion here.
