As for Doughty, need I remind you about his sophomore "slump" similar to PK's? Not to mention the criticism he went through after holding out for more cash and apparently coming in out of shape?
These guys have more experience than PK, but PK isn't that far off from them. If PK steps up and learns to settle his play a bit, he'll be at the same level.
Put another way, both Doughty and Karlsson in the past 3 years have had two more ordinary seasons and one where things really broke their way. Subban has yet to have such a year.

Doughty coming back to earth after a monster 59 point campaign is a good example of why I doubt flirting with a PPG is a regular thing for Karlsson.
