Discussion in 'Ottawa Senators' started by DrunkUncleDenis, May 7, 2017.
This may be an unpopular opinion around these parts, but personally, I think Karlsson is good at hockey things.
2008 Draft Flashback
'... The full house at Scotiabank Place roared when Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson stepped to the podium and selected his countryman.
"To be picked by the Senators when the draft is in Ottawa is amazing and to hear your name be called out by Alfredsson is a nice feeling and I will remember it for the rest of my life," said Karlsson.
"Hopefully I will make the citizens of Ottawa happy," added Karlsson who, at five-foot-11 and 165 pounds, will certainly need to put on some weight and muscle before making the move to the NHL. ....'
Omg... he's leaving for sure. Didn't even say when he was drafted that he wanted to play his whole career here.
It's over people. Sell the team.
What would the stats have looked like with 2017 Karlsson on our 2005/2007 teams?
Alfie/Spez/Heater/Karlsson on a PP. Yikes.
We're not worthy.
PP probably end up at 10% because that's just how hockey likes to troll you.
In reality, I don't think he's playing as well as he was in the Boston series overall, but in some parts of most games this series he's played better when we really needed him.
Karlsson with 80 assists confirmed playing with those 3 in their prime.
Could we replace prime heater with prime Hossa? Thanks.
Oh, hey, it's International Viking Day.
Go, Erik the Red, go.
Honestly I'm worried about all the media attention he's getting... he's only going to want more money.
We should trade him asap for picks
I'd be ok in trading his feet for some healthier ones.
Take the 7th round pick and cut your losses. It's the only way.
It was written ages ago that “God rested on the seventh day.”
It was also said that “On the eighth day, God created Erik Karlsson.”
Just how dominant has he been in these playoffs?
Not a fan of our managements just gushing so publicly about Karlsson. If it's to stroke his ego, find another way. Babbling to the media where words can be misconstrued just doesn't seem right. Also as a sports fan, i believe in jinxes and public quotes being used as bulletin board material. See Mr. Melnyk proclaiming 'we're gonna kill them' before game 7 against the maple leafs circa 2004
Not once, but twice these playoffs, I've seen Don Cherry compare Karlsson to Bobby Orr.
1 + 1 and + 4 in a 4-2 win. Dude is unreal
Man is on a mission
His last 3 shifts of the game:
There is no adjective to describe him. Unreal doesn't cut it. Freak maybe?
Main board EK thread is a mess so I'll post this here:
This guy, man. This guy.
Hey remember all the "Yeah but you wouldn't want him defending a one goal lead late in a playoff game" bullcrap?
I've praised Karlsson since 2008 on here. A lot of the hate is just jealous media and fans.
Him, Stone etc. are what can win the Sens the cup. No Reddens or crap like that Karlsson is gold.
All hail the King!
