According to Kevin Kurz from the Athletic, Karlsson was found to be the second least popular Shark after a polling of over 1,000 Sharks fans. Looking back on this trade, the Senators did very well. Karlsson will be 30 at the beginning of next season with 7 years remaining on his 11.5 AAV mega deal. He has dealt with numerous injuries and it is inarguable that he is not the player that he was just a few years back. So, is Dorion a genius? Or was he forced into the deal? Did he do well in a deal that he was forced into? Blind luck? I know that this has been a question that has rolled around for quite some time, but I find it interesting to check in on it from time to time.
