88-89 OPC Tribute: Karlsson, Campbell, and Neely

Erik Karlsson is currently leading all NHL defencemen in points and in All-Star balloting.  The Senators traded up, 18th overall to 15th, in the 2008 draft to select Karlsson.  Could a Norris Trophy be in his future?  Speaking of Norris Trophy candidates, Brian Campbell has found his game in Florida, after three subpar seasons in Chicago.  Although he helped the Hawks win a Cup in 2010, Campbell was viewed as a major disappointment after signing a large contract in 2008.
