I'm going to share an anecdote today because I can't think of a better way to tee up this interview for you all. I also shared this on twitter not too long ago. I hope I am not technically plagiarizing myself.

Warning: The following sentimentality may cause feelings.

The last time the Sens were in Pittsburgh there was, as you will recall, a fair amount of attention on the play of Erik Karlsson. Not only was he logging season-low minute totals, he was visibly frustrated on the ice and bench. He wasn’t meeting the expectations set for a Norris Trophy winner, let alone his own.

In Game 3 Karlsson rebounded in a fashion to be expected of a star player in the NHL. He showed his patented speed through the neutral zone, he played with the puck on his stick, he even flirted with the spectacular on a soccer-style dribble and pass attempt that almost resulted in a Sens goal.

In sum, Karlsson brought that flair which has entrenched his status as the best defenceman in hockey and cornerstone of the Ottawa Senators.
