Erik Karlsson

Worthy of his own NPR thread I'd say.

Winning the D-men scoring race by 20 points would be how high on the list of largest scoring margins for D-men? I'm sure Orr blew that away several times but after him I'm guessing Karlsson could end up pretty soon on that list?

12 equal strength goals so far.

Saw him play last night and was the first time I really paid attention to him. He's as smooth skating as they come.

He's a really terrific player.

His defensive play is waaaaaaaaaaay under-rated, because people need to find deficiencies in a player's game when he's tearing up the league so badly offensively.

He's obviously not Rob Scuderi, but he's not entirely a one-trick pony, either.

Very underrated at this point, even though he plays in a Canadian market and on a team that was expected to be total suck this year. He's not world-class in his own end but is better than several guys who are supposed to provide offense from the blueline that Karlsson is already surpassing.
