Mostly because there is no known case of the best D-man in SM-liiga being awarded with the Norris Trophy at the end of the season. But if the lockout persists and carries on over Christmas, Karlsson definitely has a shot at the Pekka Rautakallio Trophy, which would likely make him at least half as good as Vatanen, since he's won it twice.

It's all there in the context. But no need to worry, it is perfectly human that sometimes we get a badly symptomatic tunnel vision and are simply unable to see it. A sad thing, but something we just have to live with. But if it really is a comprehension issue, just say the word, and we can try conveying the same message in other languages (with the approval of the mods, naturally). I'm personally capable of translating to Swedish, Klingon, Bat-signal and Bend-It-Out-Of-Iron-Wire.
