Karlsson is pretty much untouchable and should be.
Just curious, would Sens fans take JVR or Giroux straight up for Karlsson?
Easily for Giroux and probably for JVR. I've been a big JVR fan and I'm hoping he's breaking out. It would be a pretty big risk but he's something this organization needs badly.
Giroux I wouldn't even have to think about. An impact forward like him isn't something that comes along every day. Karlsson would be missed but at least we have the prospects coming up to soften the blow.

The only problem is for Butler, he has to play the right wing. Earlier this year we started Butler on the left side and he just floated back to the right. It leaves a giant gap up the ice because he's so used to playing on the right side. Michalek needs to be moved to the right side, though.
