Both Karlsson and Subban make plenty of mistakes as normal to a player their age. Karlsson has better playmaking vision.

If forced to choose I'd take Karlsson over Subban precisely because of his offensive talent while still having a ton of defensive potential. But he gets the majority of his starts in the offensive zone for a reason, Subban is clearly the better defensive player right now.

And the numbers back me up http://www.habseyesontheprize.com/20...real-canadiens

And let's not forget Karlsson is already being paid very handsomely.
