Proving Themselves In Vegas

from Michael Traikos of the National Post,

Alexander Wennberg or William Karlsson?

If the Columbus Blue Jackets could do it all over again, which player do you think they would protect?...

The Blue Jackets protected Wennberg, who is 23, rather than Karlsson, who is one year older. After 22 games, Wennberg has a goal and 10 points. Karlsson, who has 14 goals and 25 points in 27 games, would be far and away Columbus’ leader in goals and points.

Then again, it was only after joining the expansion team that he was given the chance to showcase his previously dormant talents.

“I was an offensive guy in Sweden,” Karlsson, who had 25 points in 81 games last season and has already exceeded his previous high of six goals, told NHL.com this week. “I kind of knew I always had it in me. I knew I had a chance here and I really wanted to take it.”
