    Should definitely have won last year and the year doh boy won.

    Don't think he deserved to win his first one against Weber though

    Who is to say he deserved the Norris trophies he lost and legitimately won the Norris trophy he beat out Doughty for?

    He should have 9 after this year.

    Thought it was criminal they didn't just award it after his 17 games in 2013.

    He’s been my personal pick for the Norris the last 3 years. It’s strange because there hasn’t been one single year where he’s been the clear cut best defenseman in the league

    He should have 4 of them. It's probably pretty easy to guess which ones I think he should have that he does not.

    What’s the point of pointless posts like this?

    None.

    Best offensive defenseman by far though.

    Last season.

    Putting up a lot of points while being a turnstile and pizza maker shouldn't make you the best defenseman.

    In 1986, Wayne Gretzky scored 215 points. Mario Lemieux with 141 was voted the most outstanding player in the league by his peers that year (Pearson trophy).

    In 1989 - Lemieux himself scored 199 points, and 85 goals. Gretzky at 168 points was given the hart, and Yzerman at 155 points was given the Pearson.

    3 examples of highway robbery imo.

    Karlsson could have won more than 2. But i don't feel as though it was robbery either time. He just ended up on the wrong side of voting. Similar to Kessel/Crosby Conn Smythe in 2016. Kessel could have won in 2016, but Crosby was very deserving too. Sucks for Kessel, but doesn't make Crosby unworthy, and therefore I don't look back thinking Kessel was robbed.

    So I voted 2.

    Zero. With a bullet.

    He's never been great defensively.

    Nope he deserved it, he was playing with so many outcast Dman and driving the team's offense while being pretty good defensively even if not great.

    Why, same as the OP, of course...slagging other defensemen's legacies.


    It's been years of this, all right...years of implicitly *****ing about EK being robbed of Norris' years later and publicly rounding up support when some people just can't let it go.

    For the record I think he's right where he should be.

    So "****-slinging contest" is your response. Alright!

    If you ignore the last line, sure.

    But if a tongue-in-cheek post satirizing the meta-commentary really wrecks your day so hard, maybe you should just avoid the thread.

    Classic "called-on-your-BS" tactic - suggest that you have ruined the person's day. I am clearly not the one who is unsettled by Karlsson threads. Does OP have an obsession with EK? For sure! It's a fine poll question, though, with fine choices, and you came in here for no reason other than to make fun of him.

    Moving on...
