Karlsson, Weber: Top Fantasy Defenders

(2/26/12) Shea Weber and Erik Karlsson were up to their old tricks again on Saturday.  Weber recorded 2 more goals, while Karlsson had a 3 point night.  The two are now tied for the NHL lead for goals by defensemen, and they sit first and third in points by blue liners, with come-back player of the year Brian Campbell sandwiched in between thanks to his 38 assists.  Karlsson is looking like the odds on favorite to take the Norris Trophy this season.  The Senators are in the playoff picture and Karlsson is currently on pace for an 80 point season, harkening back to the days of Brian Leetch and Paul Coffey.  He's currently 8th overall in NHL scoring.
