Ideal D-partner for Karlsson

Who do you guys consider to be the ideal D-partner for Karlsson? One of the names that came to mind for me initially was Josh Gorges, because of his steady, stay-at-home style. Anyone else?

Jared Cowen.

But if you're letting me pick anyone I'm gonna take Chris Pronger in his 20s.

On the Sens, Jared Cowen.

In the league, Zdeno Chara.

All time, Larry Robinson.

Erik Karlsson is Erik Karlsson's ideal partner. We must invent cloning technology!

I really want to see a EK-OEL pairing next olympics.

But in reality it needs to be someone who can shoot the puck, and is smart enough to give Karlsson the puck at the right time (and is capable of it). Methot is neither of that.

Does anyone know if Cowen is a faster skater than Karlsson? Obviously Karlsson is the best skater, but the 6'5'' Cowen is scary fast as well.

Chara. You don't need someone fleetfooted because Karlsson can handle puck-rushing duties but if there is any one criticism of Methot it's that Karlsson would probably be even more dangerous on the ice if his d partner was more of a shooting threat.

That said Methot is not making that much money and we picked him up for Foligno. We should be ecstatic with his performance so far.

EDIT: Also, complaining about or criticizing anything when this team is 5-1-1 especially given the injuries we've had is mind-boggling.

Brent Burns would probably be unreal with Karlsson too.

Chara no question. Left hand D, best in the league defensively, and has a giant slapper and PPQB ability.

Of course, it's something that could never come to be, since the world would explode if it did.

Cowen. This guy will be a star in the league and an even bigger star beside Karlsson.

Thirding Chara. That pairing would be unbelievably good.

Hopefully Cowen turns into a Chara-lite.

Someone as solid as Methot defensively, who will defer puck carrying duties to EK, and has a solid shot.

Ryan Suter.

Weber isn't the same defenseman without Suter covering for him. Think about how good Karlsson would look with Suter covering for him?

I don't think there's any hypothetical pairing in the league better than Chara - Karlsson. Best to be happy with what we have and not torment ourselves with these kind of fantasies.
