    Default Tolvanen or W. Karlsson?

    Draft isn't for another month but these are the two guys I'll have my choice of. I'm 1 year into a rebuild and not contending this year. Karlsson is obviously the more proven comodity and Tolvanen is the shiny new toy... Thoughts??

    Points only - no positions keeper

    Karlsson was almost a point per game player last year and is only 25... if you are in rebuild mode draft him and see what people will offer for him.

    My concern is Tolvanen will have a hard time carving out a good opportunity in that Nashville lineup, and even a player like Forsberg who gets the best chances to succeed will be held back from his true ceiling as long as the team is coached the way it is.

    Karlsson in the other hand is bound to regress this season but he's still an undisputed top line and PP1 player who will get those opportunities. Until something changes in Nashville I'll have to go with Karlsson for now.

    Karlsson for me. Even if he does regress i don't think it will be a huge drop off i'm thinking around 55 floor 70 ceiling

    Big Willie Karlsson! The guy had a fire under his ass last season and delivered. I expect a regression as will most, but only to a certain extent. He is the top player on Vegas and should comfortably get 65-70 points.
