Larsson/Klefbom, Jesse Puljujarvi, 2018 1st, 2019 3rd (NYI)
I’m pretty sure Edmonton want a signed Karlsson given that they have $21m tied to 2 players. They need to know if they can sign him to 10 million and not 13.
sounds like a really big risk. Why would you trade this package for an unsigned.........anyone?
If Edmonton does not improve next season with Karlsson, would he resign there?
I don't see why unsigned vs signed matters here. Other teams will offer deals based on a sign and trade, so Edmonton would have to match those offers regardless.
Is it fair? Yeah. Does it excite me as a sens fan? I mean, not really.
I doubt he gets traded unsigned. Everyone says "sign and trades never happen", and they don't often. But trading of franchise players also never happen. If Edmonton is giving up a lot of assets, they want the guarantee.
I also don't really see a scenario where Karlsson goes to EDM without one of Draisaitl or RNH being the main piece coming back.
We have seen so many bad trades regarding EK. Term is so important in a trade. And a out of the playoff team isn't giving up top assets (including potentially a lottery pick next year) for just one year of EK.
I really can't see the Oilers even being in the running for EK. McDavid and Leon that's 21m and Karlson would put them at over 30 for three players. And there is nothing in for EK to sign early in a silly sign and trade. Does folks really think Edmonton would be a favoured destination for EK?
Lol at this package not 'exciting' the Sens fans... Karlsson signed or unsigned isnt returning half of this.
A signed Karlsson definitely returns this and more and I’m an Oilers fan.
If there is no guarantee he will stay, why would a team make a big offer/part with quality/core assets to acquire him, that seems like a logical point.
Lets say "Half of this" is Larsson+2018 1st. You're on some really good drugs if you think Edmonton wouldn't make that trade in a heartbeat for an unsigned Karlsson, let alone for a guaranteed 9 years of him.
For an unsigned Karlsson it would be a package of draft picks and prospects only
Unsigned Karlsson and a 'no' vote option seem to have some chemistry between each other, I can't seem to put my finger on it
LOL a signed Karlsson would be worth more than any player on the Oilers excluding McDavid.
Absolutely can not make that trade unless they get a prearranged signing as part of it. They would have to add probably to get a signed Karlsson.
I just don’t know how EDM an fit him under the cap.
Is Edmonton okay with moving Drai to fit him going forward because they're not very likely to win the cup next year and they're going to have even worse depth than they do now if they re-sign EK and keep paying both Drai and McDavid.
RNH + Ethan Bear/Poolparty/Yamoto + 2018 1st + 2019 Cond. 2nd (becomes 1st if resigns)
Erik Karlsson + JG Pageau
No deal without Draisaitl coming back
Edm would never do this unless Karlsson is signed.
a 2019 3rd (NYI) has potential to be a lottery pick?
I keep seeing these insane offers and sens fans are never happy with them.
Can’t wait to see what really happens.
Is Drai for Karlsson(signed) worthwhile for either team?
Sens get an elite winger locked with term, and can experiment with him at C to see if he can carry his own line.
Oilers get the best dman on the planet, and with McDavid the team should be a playoff team.
Leon Draisaitl, 22 and locked up for 8 years, is not being dealt for an unsigned Karlsson. I'd take that and run if I was sens.
Terrible post is terrible.
And Karlsson will only be moved if he is signed.
