where does he sign? Sj would be a bad choice they're the 2011 red wings , maybe tb?
I'm sure he's going to try out playing in San Jose before rushing to conclusions about the team like you did.
Christ... dumb thread.
Obv the Leafs
Who says he doesn't wind up staying because he loves playing there?
Can't remember the last time I heard of a trade request out of playing in San Jose
The Senators after Melnyk sells the team.
He's going to sign in Toronto obviously, they will definitely win the next 20 cups.
At a discount too,
My gut says Tampa but San Jose could definitely become the favorite as the season plays out. It's not rare for players to grow attached to cities they play for, and San Jose has a great track record of being loved by its players.
Who actually thinks that after all this he would just up and leave? Hes there to stay, and I dont see SJS giving him up that easy, im sure they will offer a sweet deal.
In addition to all the comments above every time a player talks about San Jose's locker room its openly and praising the camaraderie. Thornton and Burns are the big factors behind this atmosphere obviously so I dont know what it will look like when they leave, but usually younger players are influenced by it and the tradition perpetuates
San Jose's window looks really small. I don't think he re-signs there long-term, if at all.
If Melnyk sells the team, and Alfredsson is in the management team, I think Ottawa is actually a front-runner, if they haven't gutted the team much more by then.
If not, Tampa Bay is then the front runner IMO.
players stay in San Jose
I'd say Tampa but it's in the East. Might say Vancouver, Dallas or Vegas. Whatever team pays him, really. If not San Jose.
Ill say he stays in SJ. If he makes it to FA, he either goes to TB or the team that pays him the most imo.
It's crazy how many things I thought I'd never see happen, happen.
Duchene would stay in Colorado for a long, long time.
Karlsson would be a Senator for life.
Marleau would be a Shark for life.
Weber would be a Predator for life.
Tavares would be an Islander for life.
Sundin would be a Leaf for life.
Naslund would be a Canuck for life.
IF Yzerman, takes over as Red Wings general manager. Perhaps he goes after him. The Red Wings will have around $18-$19 million in cap space. Yzerman wanted him in Tampa. Could see it as a real possibility.
Melnyk will sell.
SJS will miss the playoffs.
The 2019 SJS pick will win the draft lottery.
Karlsson will return as a UFA to play with Hughes.
Hughes does NOT look like a #1 overall pick....probably the weakest #1 since Yakupov.
Stevie comes to Detroit and snags him..ugh, that would be sick. Sadly only a dream.
Karlsson free agency thread #5 of 50342 this season...I hope he re-ups before the end of the year so I dont have to suffer through June/July with more of this crap.
No one knows what he will do. Some say Tampa, some say San Jose, some say Melnyk will sell the team and he will go home and it was all an elaborate ruse....at the end of the day this is a waste of internet data to create yet another one of these threads
I think he re signs in San Jose
I did, and i read what he posted....apparently you couldn't read past his username. Here, i''ll help you out.....nowhere does he mention the Leafs. So maybe your blatent pissing contest jab is just about you and your insecurities?
Everyone on this site is always talking about "Leafs fans making every thread about them!!" Well....on page one we have 3 non-Leafs fans trying to make it all about the Leafs.
