The whole season is impacted and it should come as to no surprise since he is the best player in the league. Not only does he lose a year of development, even if he comes back 100% next year, the whole year for Ottawa wouldn't be as meaningful and capable of doing the most damage with him out.
You know, I thought like you yesterday... and after thinking for a while, I've come to realize that **** happens. This is sports. Sidney Crosby, better player than Karlsson, was out (due to a freak hit... which is certainly more questionable than Cooke incident, actually) for half a season after putting up 66 points in 41 games. Imagine how Pittsburgh felt.
