    Kyper just said during the 1st intermission of the Leafs/Panthers game that was a forgone conclusion that Karlsson was NOT going to re sign with the Senators.

    so the question becomes 3 fold

    1 Where does he go?

    2 WHEN does he go? does he go by that deadline or at the draft?

    3 can the team that gets him actually sign him? I am looking at Tampa as an example here, they might get him but could they sign him with Kucherov also needing a deal?

    things just got interesting

    Kypreos has no insider connection to Ottawa and has been blabbering for weeks trying to get views for his deadline show.

    EK would be foolish to re-sign in Ottawa when Melnyk won't pay up to build around him. Sure maybe EK gets what he deserves but other won't be so lucky.

    It's a forgone conclusion, the majority of what Kypreos says is not true.

    Kypreos sure is doing what he can to hype up the deadline show lol.

    If Karlsson is traded, it's not going to be at the deadline. It'll be a summer trade more likely. Not even necessarily the draft, but it'd be during the summer.

    Why though? Is it because of Money? Or the team?

    Doesn’t make sense to me.

    Would you want to play for Melnyk? That is the only issue in Ottawa.

    I think it would be foolish if Ottawa resigns him.

    They still didn't resign him. Doesn't mean because they didn't trade him my statement was wrong.

    Every off season Kypreos says that Malkin has played his last game for the Pens. I'm not convinced he knows anything about anything.

    Because the team is awful, and the owner is cheap and won't spend the money to make it better

    Erik Karlsson will be a New Jersey Devil.

    McLeod
    2019 1st

    Karlsson then resigns 7x10M

    I don't know what the market will look like but I imagine the haul would be much better before the deadline.

    Karlsson and a retained Ryan for Lucic, RNH and Edmonton's unprotected 1st. Sens save a ton of real dollars in going from Ryan to Looch, and acquire a young center to either replace Brassard long-term or use as trade bait for other "cost effective" assets.
