Seems like Karlsson wants to score goals at all cost. So if he's not any good at defending, why is he playing D? Yeah I know cause he makes a nice first pass... but duh... he leads the league is MINUS and plays pretty small in the physical department.
Let's get some thumpers to replace all the physical dmen that we've lost... and move him up to Top Six. This time is extended training camp anyways, so why not try that? Doesn't it make sense to allow him to do what he does best?
Cowen and Rundblad are physical. Rundblad can play Power Play QB and so can Gonchar... so do you think that Karlsson scoring 30 to 40 goals a season would help our cause a little or what? He could be the guy that could inspire Spezza to new heights.
