Saying this for a few years now, Cowen-Karlsson could be pretty similar to Seabrook-Keith

We all know what Karlsson is capable of, and we've seen glimpses of what Cowen can do... They even have a chance to become a better pair...

We have no idea what player Ceci will exactly be. All we can see is where his abilities are right now, in the middle of his development. He probably won't ever become a mean physical D-man, but he can develop his physical game for sure.

Even if he develops that part of his game to the Doughty level, it doesn't mean he will reach Drew's level in other facets of the game... Let's just hope he can reach his level in a few facets

Chris Phillips was/is a very good skater but Cowen has bigger steps and what separates him from others is his very long reach

PS : Phillips is not an offensive D-man at all but I think his offensive game has always been underated. Sure, he doesn't bring it every game but he consistently put up 20-25 pts season with not a lot of PP time and offensive responsibilities...
