What's funny is our team (I know this situation is a bit biased) has gone further in the POs than their team has in the past 5 years.

Karlsson IMO, is just a slightly better Mike Green. Almost the same cuz they've both gotten serious injuries (Green had concussion(s) and Karlsson the Achilles) over their careers.

PK reminds me of a more physical Lidstrom, or like a Duncan Keith but better offensively.
Karlsson is king of a certain class of D-men. Green, Byfuglin, Yandle etc. Guys that are heavily involved in offensive plays by playing deep in the offensive zone, and are good enough all round to be not be a massive liablity.

Subban's results are more like a less dominant Lidstrom, or pretty much identical to Doughty. They don't get as many points because they aren't nearly so aggresive, but they boost their squads scoring tremendously. Which is why the ESP point thing is bogus. It does not line up closely with the effect on team offense when we are talking about defensemen.

Suter on the other hand, is a compiler. He gets lots of points because he plays big minutes, not so much that he's brilliant at driving offense in the minutes played.
