I think Cowen and Karlsson will be a dominant first pairing for 10+ years. And to the poster comparing Cowen to YANNICK Weber, take your trolling elsewhere.

The most impressive thing about Cowen is his skating ability for his size.

Let's just compare Cowen to Cowen because he is no Chara.
I used Chara because I thought I was responding to a Bruins fan (based on avatar), not because I thought their games were similar. Although I would love to see Cowen develop his shot like Chara...

Saying this for a few years now, Cowen-Karlsson could be pretty similar to Seabrook-Keith

We all know what Karlsson is capable of, and we've seen glimpses of what Cowen can do... They even have a chance to become a better pair...

We have no idea what player Ceci will exactly be. All we can see is where his abilities are right now, in the middle of his development. He probably won't ever become a mean physical D-man, but he can develop his physical game for sure.

Even if he develops that part of his game to the Doughty level, it doesn't mean he will reach Drew's level in other facets of the game... Let's just hope he can reach his level in a few facets

Chris Phillips was/is a very good skater but Cowen has bigger steps and what separates him from others is his very long reach

PS : Phillips is not an offensive D-man at all but I think his offensive game has always been underated. Sure, he doesn't bring it every game but he consistently put up 20-25 pts season with not a lot of PP time and offensive responsibilities...

I expect Cowen to be a great 2-way defensemen with the team for years to come. I expect a pairing of him and Karlsson to be a top pairing in the NHL for the next decade.

Thus he has a better chance on weaker match-ups. If we have a dominant team the next few seasons, he has the potential to put up really good numbers like Priessing, Corvo, Meszaros did vs lower pairings when we had a stacked team. Because of the offence first philosophy of the team now, there is a chance Wiercioch can benefit from good match-ups with Karlsson and whoever.. maybe Cowen... maybe someone else drawing all the best players against him. If we can become a very good team and deep I think he could get 40-50 points as the 4 or 5th ES D-Man and the 2nd PP D-Man. But it is hard to project now. I don't think he ever trumps Cowen in icetime though.

I think Cowen is better offensively then Phillips. And a surefire 20 minute a night NHL D-Man no matter what except injuries. I do think he has better offensive upseide then Phillips has had. 30-40 pts rather than about 25 points.

When was the last time there was a pairing, dominant or not, for 10+ years?

I think he'll be a mediocre 60 goal, 130 point, 2 way center.

He'll be a 3 way player. The type that fills holes.

Fixed that for you



Side note, Karlsson is the most dangerous player from the forbidden zone. Scores goals on tops goalies like Lundquist from there and sets up too.

I remember looking at Cowen and Karlsson there, and thinking "WTF are they doing!!??" I was going nuts. Then they scored, so it was all good.

He has scored 3 from there so far. Does anyone else literally know of a forward who has scored more than Karlsson has from that angle? Against Lundqvist, Montoya and Miller.

Btw, that will be an unbelievable top-line for next decade.

Karlsson-Spezza-Cowen.

I think Spezza's game will drop by the age of 34-35. Gives us 5-6 years to find a #1 center.

Spezza will be 30 by June.

In a shortened NHL season, I believe a healthy Cowen would have helped the Sens making it into the postseason. As it stands, there is nobody else in the system that can have that kind of an impact from the backend. A physical defenceman with offensive potential.

A difference maker, and yet Cowen has only played one full NHL season.
