Karlsson can be a great if he stays at a high level for as long as the others we're mentioning, but the greatest - thats a giant stretch. Even cracking the top 20 is a
mighty task.
Spot on. Those were the others coming to mind for me as well. I think Zubie did it better than all of them though given his era of hockey, and the skill he was up against. The man was a one man breakout.
