This. I don't understand why people can't fathom players improving defensively. It's the same thing with RNH, he's in a bit of a scoring slump but he's starting more in the defensive zone and playing way better defensively.

Karlsson is still putting up points while playing better defensively than last year. His stick work in the defensive zone is very impressive.. He's just not as physical as other defenseman but considering his size this is a given.

Over the last year and a half or over the last month, either way you slice it the answer is EK. With Spezza playing, it's Spezza and Karlsson doing everything. Without him it's just Karlsson. No defenseman in the league does as much for a team as Karlsson.
