I've been visiting a great blog recently: http://welcometoyourkarlssonyears.com/
He had a great post today, and this is an excerpt from it that i think summarizes how i feel about losing our brilliant superstar.
"In any case, we here at WTYKY, who derive our very name from a love for our Special Little Guy, are thinking about him today and wishing him a speedy recovery. Not just so he can get back here and help this team win a Cup, but because we feel for him and wish him well."
Take it easy young fella, and see you next season.
Here, here. I read yesterday that they say he'll come back at 100%, which makes me relieved.
It's a tweet, but it's on topic. From @Citizenwarren:
MacLean saw Karlsson in the morning and Karlsson joked that he wanted to practice
he'd probably still outskate a lot of them.

Here's something to get your blood boiling at the NHL and NHLPA. (summarized from a number of tweets from ESPN's Pierre LeBrun)
As per CBA, Matt Cooke is no longer considered a repeat offender for purposes of calculating forfeited salary resulting from suspensions. CBA rule is that repeat offender status is reset if there's no suspension in 18 months. Cooke was last suspended in March 2011. That doesn't mean Shanahan wouldn't consider Cooke's past if something were to happen again though. This isn't unique to the new CBA; it was the same rule in the old CBA as well.
Yikes! Courtesy of @Steve_Lloyd:
Good: #Sens had 16 goals in 5 games w/ Spezza. Bad: Just 19 goals in 10 games since. Potentially Ugly?: Karlsson was on for 13 of those 19.
