Pretty good i would say, he has 8 points in 12 games (3 goals, 5 assists, 16th in Defenceman Scoring) and is tied league-wide for 2nd spot in +/- with 3 others with +11. He has gotten a lot of responsibility with Powerplay and Penalty Kill time and is leading Jokerit in average ice time per game (25.25) and has the most shots in Jokerit with 91.

This sentence makes no sense.

Does that mean that Vatanen will be a ppg-player and win the Norris in the NHL?

No. It means that Vatanen was by far the best D-man in SM-liiga last season, and Karlsson has been as impressive now.

Whatever they'll be in the NHL is a whole another thing altogether.



Comprehension. Not so hard.

He has been as awesome as expected. A true Professional in every sense.

Even though his points aren't mindblowing so far, the calmness he brings to the rest of the team is remarkable. Very likable person aswell!

And this comes from the lifelong hater of Jokerit, so no bias.

1+2 today, but still more and more critical opinions of him are being voiced in the media (and by the fans). Maybe because Jokerit are in the losing streak, maybe because Erik's magic has vanished after the first games.

Well he wouldn't be first player to get depressed in the dark, cold and wet Finnish autumn. He's Scandinavian though, so he should be used to that.

His icetime makes it impossible to not get tired and play without mistakes. Yesterday his icetime was 31.56 and it felt like he was on the ice all the time. He was still Jokerit's best player offensively but his defensive game suffers from this. I'm sure he's not competing 100% which I understand since he doesn't need to do that to be better than the others. Jokerit are also missing 2 of their key defencemen which puts more defensive responsibility on Karlsson. And he's not a defensive d-man.

This. You can see that he isn't playing with full intensity. He is toying around there. Hands down the best player on ice yesterday. He is just ridiculous with the puck. I think that it's hard to compete 100% when your opponents are much weaker than you...

"Same level" means "as good", to me.

Yes. As good as Vatanen. In SM-liiga. Whether they'll be both as good in the NHL which is a whole different environment is, obviously, an issue we can't evaluate yet. Mostly because there is no known case of the best D-man in SM-liiga being awarded with the Norris Trophy at the end of the season. But if the lockout persists and carries on over Christmas, Karlsson definitely has a shot at the Pekka Rautakallio Trophy, which would likely make him at least half as good as Vatanen, since he's won it twice.


It's all there in the context. But no need to worry, it is perfectly human that sometimes we get a badly symptomatic tunnel vision and are simply unable to see it. A sad thing, but something we just have to live with. But if it really is a comprehension issue, just say the word, and we can try conveying the same message in other languages (with the approval of the mods, naturally). I'm personally capable of translating to Swedish, Klingon, Bat-signal and Bend-It-Out-Of-Iron-Wire.

I see you go straight to being condescending, when someone doesn't agree with you. Nice going.

And you don't seem to have noticed that there is nothing left to agree or disagree, given how the one who made the original statement pretty much confirmed right after me that my interpretation was spot on. I may have forgot my manners there for a second, and I apologize, but given how absurd the situation is, I think it's pretty human behavior.


mattihp: *makes a bit obscure statement*
Nordic: Does this mean this?
FiLe: No, it means this, I think.
mattihp: Yes, that is indeed what it means.
Nordic: No, it must mean this, because it's what I think it means. I reject the original meaning and substitute my own.

Nice going, indeed.




Oh, and by the way, even if Karlsson has sometimes appeared as he doesn't give it 100% all the time, he's still been nothing short of impressive.

Hmm...

This is what I wrote: "Same level" means "as good", to me.", stating that I misinterpreted what you meant. I have no idea what brought this reaction and attitude on.

I think Vatanen is better hockey player than Karlsson. I'm not sure if he adabt to NHL as good as Karlsson but on big ice Vatanen is definitely better hockey player.

I'm a huge Vatanen fan but I have to disagree with this. Vatanen has a lot of potential but it's hard to justify him being better than the recent Norris winner.
