Ottawa Should Trade Erik Karlsson Now

from Chris Johnston of Sportsnet,

Here’s the thing about trading Erik Karlsson: It’s never going to be easy.

Not now, in the rushed hours before Monday’s 3 p.m. ET deadline. Not in June at the entry draft, even with fewer cap constraints and more suitors. Not in July, when sign-and-trade scenarios could potentially come into play.

The only thing that changes over time with this type of franchise-altering decision is where the leverage lies. And for the next three-plus days the Ottawa Senators are in a more powerful position than they’re likely to find themselves afterwards.
