How many players have you seen have one good year get the really good contract and then never perform to that level again. That is what I am worried about with Karlsson. Even Souray got 16 goals in one year.
Karlsson had a better year last year than any of the fab 4 have had, ever. I get what you're saying and in general I very much disagree with valuing a player highly based on a single season, but the numbers Karlsson put up were better than some of the league's best forwards, and that's real hard to ignore.
