Erik Karlsson is going to strike it rich this summer, whether he wins the Norris Trophy as the National Hockey League’s top defenceman or not.
Here are a few words of caution, though, for those asking Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray to lock him up to a contract for the next decade or so: Alexei Yashin, Rick DiPietro, Vincent Lecavalier. Scott Gomez, Shawn Horcoff, Chris Pronger, James Wisniewski.
Almost every organization that has been handicapped by an endless contract or two. There’s a book in there somewhere, a story of busts and buyouts and broken bones that never mended properly. Teams have been forced to lick their wounds – few are in the position of the New York Rangers, who have buried Wade Redden and his colossal contract in the minors – while the money burns.
