You know, even though Karlsson was drafted a year before JT, they are both the same age as 1990's.
It may not have been your intention, but the "potential" comment kinda sounded like you were trying to say JT has an actual advantage in that deparment. Tavares has a lot of room to grow, and I wouldnt be surprised to see him hit triple digit points, but EK isnt done growing his game either.

Erik could keep up his point totals and bring his defense to above average or even good. Think of a ppg Kimmo Timmonen. Anyways, to sum up this thread, they are extremely close in value, and it just comes down to whether you prefer a franchise d-man or forward.
