RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Andreas Karlsson.
Karlsson started to see increased ice time toward the end of 2006-2007 but he just isn't physical enough (despite his large frame) to justify a permanent role on the third line. He'll probably be the team's 13th forward, rotating in and out of fourth-line duty.
Karlsson is coming off a year when he was the scoring champ and MVP of the Swedish Elite League. He is versatile with a great shot, and will likely fill a role on a lower line in Tampa Bay.
