    This is speculation, but I think Washington winning the cup helps the Sens in future Karlsson trade discussions.

    Not sure if Vegas would be all that interested in trading the farm away for a big fish like EK if they win the cup, but if they finish oh so close, GMGM might want to make a splash to try to make sure they aren't a one-year-wonder.

    Definitely want as many bidders as possible to make sure we get compensated well for trading away the best player our franchise has ever had (and probably will ever have).

    Feel a bit bad for Vegas right now not gonna lie...

    But then again, everyone projected a bottom 5 finish.

    All this post has done is make me depressed because it reminded me that we are trading Karlsson because our owner is too cheap and poor to pay him.

    Since when is trading Karlsson a foregone conclusion?

    I don't feel bad for them in the slightest. Cinderella runs are great, but the expectation is always to come short but enjoy the ride while it lasts. They've had a heck of a ride and lots of fun along the way.

    Happy for Washington fans, they've gone through a lot of disappointment over the years.

    I would have loved to get Weight as our coach.

    He's going to get around 11 per easy. The Leafs are going to have hard time improving their mediocre D which is great news for everyone.

    They will have to trade Nylander / Marner to get a good D

    Crazy, right? Worst team in hockey is expected to sell off their best player and best goal scorer. That's how to improve immediately, right?

    Dredger just said he thinks Karlsson will not get traded. Why is he expected to be traded all of a sudden.

    Step away from the ledge and take a deep breath, it's going to be ok.

    Besides if Hoffman was Russian everybody would want him out of here ASAP.

    TSN just listed Karlsson as the #1 on their trade bait list and Karlsson was nearly traded to Vegas at the deadline. What do you mean all of a sudden? This has been ongoing for months and it's only got worse with Melnyk poo pooping the idea of players making more than 10M per season his town halls.

    We just gotta hope the team is sold soon so we can keep Karlsson. There's no chance Karlsson stays while he's owner.

    Does Dreger mean he doesn’t expect Karlsson to be traded at the draft or not traded at all?

    If the Caps win the cup, Beagle will apparently be the first player to win an ECHL, AHL and NHL title. Karl Alzner made the point in an interview so I'm not 100% confident that it's correct but even if not, it's a pretty impressive feat (especially given that he's done it all with one organization).

    Good point!

    I didn't listen to the interview itself. Was going off the bullet point version we got.
