I personally think it would be more important to have gifted offensive forwards for him to get the puck to and to have that offensive D on the PP with him. As for 5 on 5 I think a more defensive minded D is an important asset to have with Karlsson because he drives so much of the offense.
You can be an excellent defensive player and still not be a black hole on offense.
