    Bad teams get scored on a lot. HAving a good player on the ice doesn't make an awful team into a great one.

    What does that have to do with Karlsson?

    You realize you are not quoting Erik Karlsson, right?

    Embarrassing question for one of the best offensive Defenseman ever.

    I hope Erik Karlsson returns to his usual self. He was an electric player in Ottawa.

    At his peak, Karlsson was the best offensive defenseman the NHL had seen in a long, long time. There are no defensemen in the game today that are on par with what he was at that time.

    I would argue Cale Makar is at that level, as much as it hurts for me to say.

    If you skipped this video, take this chance now to watch it. His response is so nonchalant yet scathing. It's glorious.

    I don't want to talk down about Makar because he is a great player, and he could get there, but I will disagree. For now.

    A brief scroll through the last couple pages of this thread after a long day has produced some wonderfully enjoyable comments, such as this one (no context needed honestly) and Karlsson's.

    Have to agree. It won’t surprise anyone that I think Doughty edged him as the best D-Man but Karlsson was outstanding offensively and you’d be thinking of going back to someone like Leetch as the last guy as good (debatable & off the top of my head).

    Youngest Norris winner since Orr, first defenceman since Coffey to finish top 5 in league scoring, only 2nd defenceman in league history to lead the league in assists, led the olympics in scoring etc etc

    Now imagine if he actually played on good teams instead of having Turris as his 1c. But not even close right?

    Some notable dmen with worse +/- numbers than Karlsson this season:
    Rasmus Dahlin
    Quinn Hughes
    Brent Burns
    Seth Jones
    Mark Giordano
    Oliver Ekman-Larsson
    Roman Josi
    Zach Werenski
    Ryan Ellis
    Keith Yandle
    John Klingberg


    But I guess that doesn't fit your narrative.

    Karlsson is very consistent in being a minus player he plays high risk run and gun he always has
    fist it was Ottawa sucks now it’s the sharks suck at what point does his horrific turn overs and inability to defend skating backwards need to be addressed?
    Oh that’s right never because 2 points

    Could you create a list that shows the difference betweenness number of points and minus stat? Like Dahlin is minus 34 and has 12 points, so he’s a difference of -22. Hughes has 28 points and is minus 14, so he’s a +14. What’s EK compare don’t to the other guys on your list?

    Sounds like he's a lot of "second to do it" and "done it since someone else did it before him" and not greatest ever.
