Usually Defensemen are more heavily valued then Forwards.

If you could choose 1 player to build your franchise around, I think most people would pick either Karlsson or Crosby. Maybe an edge to Crosby.

Not hard to believe that we wouldn't trade karlsson for anything but Crosby. Which we would have to add.

**This is ofcourse Karlsson returns to form**
Crosby, Malkin, Stamkos, then maybe Karlsson. If you're talking about a very good forward, and a very good D, then the D gets the edge. But when you're talking about the very very best, that edge goes back to the forward. Don't get me wrong... Karlsson is a very good player. But if I was building a team, I'd be doing so with one of those 3 centers, and Karlsson wouldn't even receive consideration until they were no longer an option.

I've been looking for trouble... but trouble hasn't been cooperating!
