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.
You wouldn't give up any of the fab 4 for a 21 year old Norris Trophy winner (Youngest since Bobby Orr) who is signed to a deal only a half million more per year than Eberle and Hall on the point that he isn't proven? Which of the fab 4 is more proven than him? I'd give up any 1 player on the Bruins for Karlsson. He finished tied for 10th in scoring when the next highest defensemen was tied for 80th. Unreal.
To each their own I guess.
