The plays he makes to turn the team back on offense are impossible to ignore and impact the game greatly. He's like a defensive back in the neutral zone waiting for a pick-6.

Not to mention, team in general is fast...they look like a swarm of bees but with structure. We haven't played anyone good yet but it's encouraging to see them dictate their style against what I assume to be lesser opponents.
We've played good but we didn't score as much as we should have.

Because he didn't have a contract with the Panthers at first and missed 1 game? The "Russian Factor" in Benn, Subban and O'Reilly must be incredibly high...

And they should admit that the Sens have an unfair advantage because he is a 4th forward while also playing at defense.

He is worth 2 players when he is on the ice.
Indeed. He is becoming more and more comfortable rushing up the ice. 4th forward should be taken as a compliment though.

I was his biggest critic for a long time but he really has become one of the best players in the league.

I would say he's the best player on Ottawa now.

He's playing a different game out there. He's not the best player on the team, he's already the best player to ever lace up a pair of skates for the Sens.
IMO whatever list you put together for the top few players in the league - Karlsson is on that list.

Crosby, Malkin, Stamkos, Karlsson. (no particular order and im not going to tell you he's better than those guys but he's in that group)

he's simply ridiculous.

3 games. Beyond the point. Things click if you play well.

It's one thing to pick off a pass and get a break when you are in full stride, but to pick off a pass, wait for a guy to get onside, still beat three defenders and shoot where a guy used to be...

That's genius.

Karlsson IS one of the best players in the league. He deserves to be in any conversation that includes Crosby and Malkin.
Glad to see other Sens fans thinking that way as I have already been on that bandwagon since the end of the playoffs. Even Nicky "Scambled Eggs" Kypreos said he is one of the best players in the league in last night's broadcast.

Toews and them are great, but not on the same league as Crosby, Malkin, and Karlsson in terms of game breaking abilities. Pure awesomeness these three guys, and it's a pity that Ovie is a shade of his former self for some inexplicable reason when he should be just about reaching his prime.

Good times to be a hockey fan. Haters are gonna hate.

http://video.senators.nhl.com/videoc...sole?id=195492 at the very start of the video Karlsson is asked about his goal(im assuming), he kinda smirks or laughs about how it could have gone the other way. He's asked about it again at the end but hes humble about it.

Discuss.
This is my sleeper pick, Justin Faulk. I think he will be a high end d-man in the very near future.

Shows how much you lurk around the board these days. It's the STL fans that absolutely hate Karlsson and always find a way to get into Karlsson discussion to say how Pie is the greatest thing since interweb.
