Not sure if serious...

Mike Green already had 2 season of 70 pts, do you value him better than Tavares ?
Not sure if serious x2...

The only goalie in the league I might take over Lundqvist, and its arguable, is Price, and that is because of age, not talent (they are pretty equivalent goalies IMO). I don't think I'd even take Rinne over Lundqvist.
Good to see Sens fans acknowledging Lundqvist's talent.

Really? Green isn't even in the same Stratosphere as Karlsson offensively and Karlsson has never had anyone the talent level of an Ovechkin to play with.

Green got points playing on a power play with Ovechkin in his 50-60 goal days. Karlsson IS the Sens power play. He's one of the best PP QB's the league has seen since Sergei Zubov and Brian Leetch, who were two of the best ever on the point.

Karlsson's offense was outstanding last season, but its not like he changed the game or anything.
He controlled the pace of the game. Lidstrom, while very good in his own zone and a solid contributor offensively for many years never controlled play like Karlsson did. They play 2 different styles of game. Karlsson of all defenders in the NHL had the greatest impact of any defenseman in the league last year while on ice. He controlled play in all 3 zones. You're kidding yourself if you think otherwise.
