The ironic thing is Karlssons rookie year:

2009-10 Ottawa Senators NHL 60 5 21 26

On pace for 32 over a 75 game season. Of course im not comparing them, and Karlsson was 18, but i find it funny how we can use comparables that falter but choose to ignore the comparables that flourish.

Just for the heck of it,

Weber at 21
2005-06 Nashville Predators NHL 28 2 8 10 On pace for 28 points

Dan Boyle 22
2000-01 Florida Panthers NHL 69 4 18 22

Chara at 23
2001-02 Ottawa Senators NHL 75 10 13 23

Brian Campbell at 23
002-03 Buffalo Sabres NHL 65 2 17 19
