Eric Karlsson And The San Jose Sharks Have A Decision To Make Soon

Chris Johnston of Sportsnet goes a bit more in-depth on the topics discussed last night on Saturday Headlines,

Lost among the talk of Erik Karlsson’s return to Ottawa, and Erik Karlsson’s uncharacteristically slow start, is what is to become of Erik Karlsson?

It doesn’t sound as though there have been any serious talks about an extension with the San Jose Sharks yet and that make some sense. They are still getting used to him, he is finding his way with them, and the team has struggled out of the gate.

But it won’t be long before the sides need to start figuring out if they might have a long-term fit together, and if not, what that might mean.

It seems highly unlikely that the two-time Norris Trophy winner would be traded again before the Feb. 25 deadline, but if he decides to test unrestricted free agency it could make for an awfully interesting July 1.
