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.
Karlsson has no measurable impact on his team's ability to prevent shots or goals against. He simply does not have the defensive effectiveness claimed by his supporters.
