Actually funny that you mentioned it. I read his 16 players to watch playoffs blog, and he stated last year was karlsson's first year in the playoffs and he was underwhelming and what not (stat watching most likely). There were some other mistakes mentioned for other teams and for some reason I haven't been able to find it since my first read. Tbh, I just think the guy is clueless on a majority of teams and he thinks he is cleverer than he really is.
Here is a great exchange between him and the brother of one of the pittsburgh commentators. Shows you how articulate the guy really is.
I've noticed that puck daddy always picks the sens to do poorly. Like this year he picked them 12th I think. He's basically a large fan base sycophant. He Sucks up to large fan bases so they'll like him. I don't think he knows much about hockey.
