One award the NHL does not offer that I think should exist is a most improved player award. If such a thing existed, I think the clear winner this year should be Erik Karlsson of the Ottawa Senators. He is the runaway top scoring defenceman in the NHL. His defence is rapidly improving and this makes him a Norris Trophy candidate. Some see him as the frontrunner, though I argue for Zdeno Chara. This is a significant improvement from the 45 point season he had last year with the third worst +/- rating in the NHL. Karlsson has now established himself as one of the top defencemen in the game. He is a significant part of the reason Ottawa is a playoff team this season. Ottawa is lucky to have him.
