I hope the Habs don't go out of their way to try to neutralize Karlsson...as great of a player as I think Karlsson is (and truthfully, I think he's a top 3-5 player in the game today) I don't think he can beat the Habs himself.

Force the Sens to try an alter their game to stop the Habs...yes, Karlsson is great...but so is Subban, Habs have their weapons too.
Oh I fully agree that it cannot be the focus of our game plan. However, I think that if the Habs can shake Karlsson up, he will be a bit more tentative out there, which takes away from the Sens transition play and makes it easier for the Habs to regain control of the puck. They just need to apy extra attention to finishing their checks on the forecheck when Karlsson has the puck.
