    So there's that.
    Wow! My league is wrapping this year and I still would ask for more than Chabot for Kling (maybe not after the injury) I see Chabot being an immense talent, but not outpointing Kling game for game the rest of the season

    I was feeling generous, but yeah I wanted picks as well but did not ask for them. I had a sneaking suspicion that he would decline the offer straight up. And he did. And that's how all Chabot owners are. Thus the ranking.

    I have to agree with this. Fortunately for me, I have figured out which owners in my keeper league put a lot of stock into these rankings. It has helped me to pull off some great trades over the last couple of years. Time for me to contact the Karlsson owner.

    If you own chabot I can see the hesitation of trading the next ghost or Karlsson, but at the same time.... there’s a larger risk chabot falls off a cliff come Jan

People were comparing Karlsson to Crosby and calling him one of the greatest defencemen of all-time - do those people still feel the same way?

    EDIT: Klingberg's injury and Heiskanen's ascension is another example of how much a D-man's value can increase when their team gives them 1st PP ice-time.

    People comparing Karlsson to Crosby and calling him one of the greatest dman of all time? I don't know about that, but I do know that he has been the best defenceman in the world going on 5 years now - if you asked 31 GMs who they would pick if they had one choice for a dman, it's probably Karlsson (although Hedman would be close). No one other than Burns has come close to the kind of impact he's had offensively, and despite the naysayers he's actually a good defensive dman.

    As a Karlsson owner, I'm certainly annoyed at his start, and was annoyed when he went to the Sharks (although that has more to do with my also owning Burns!) But to say that Karlsson is going to go from virtually a PPG dman to an average or slightly above average guy is ludicrous - that's what some GMs are doing right now with who they are trading him for, etc. The guy is in a completely new city, new team, new coaches, etc, it will take time for him to adapt, we're only 1/5th of the season in. My take is he's going to go on one of those stretches where he puts up 3-4 points per game and everyone gets excited again. I could be wrong but I'd bet good money I'm not.
