With the exception of possibly Getzlaf and Carter, would any cup-contending team take Karlsson over one of these franchise centers? My point was Karlsson would be a luxury, while these guys are building blocks for championship teams. Scoring a bunch of points from a position that doesn't focus on points doesn't make you a franchise player.
My point was you need both.

Karlsson is more than a "scoring a bunch of points from a position that doesn't focus on points" player. Do you not remember him winning that trophy for best all around ability last summer?
