    First one was with Kuba....I think he can win with anyone but cowen

    Yeah, a reasonably responsible veteran. It has been shown again and again that Karlsson is his best when paired with Methot (both by using advanced stats, regular stats, etc). There is no justification for messing with that. Karlsson is on pace for the Hart trophy, and we want to Diddle with his d partner? Please.

    Art Ross, Norris, and Hart. Just give the man the hardware. Oh, and let's have Bettman pass him the Stanley Cup in June too, ok?

    Except for the empty net goals they didn't get scored on, right?
