Assuredly, in a league in which scoring is going downhill and we're entering in another dead-puck era. So, Karlsson exploit speaks volumes about his impact on his team and the league. When coaches from other teams have to make a gameplan against Karlsson, a FREAKING DEFENSEMAN.

I agree with you Chara is the best out of the big boys. Chara is such a beast at 6'9 and so strong, it's not even possible. His shot is feared leaguewide. Goalies are struggling to find ways to stop it. He was the most impactful in 2009.
