Karlsson is a better skater, faster on the transition, a better passer... not as physical, but definitely as good defensively.
Subban in the running for Norris? Because Karlsson was injured.
So Subban's success was mostly due to Markov but Karlsson manufactures offense mostly by himself and himself alone?
So if Karlsson wasn't injured, he would have automatically been the Norris winner (even though, we all know that pro athletes performance may vary within a season and from season to season) and Subban wouldn't even be in the running?
Anyway, only time will tell who's better (but God forbid Karlsson gets injured again, because otherwise, even if Subban has an amazing career, it wouldn't be better than Karlsson's hypothetical injury-free career, right?).
