The Latest On Erik Karlsson

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

The Senators offered Karlsson an eight-year contract extension Sunday, but speculation among NHL executives was that a deal with Ottawa was doubtful and the New York Post reported Monday night that teams involved in trade talks had been given permission to talk contract with Karlsson’s representatives.

If that’s the case, expect the San Jose Sharks to step efforts to try to obtain Karlsson after failing to get Tavares even though, according to NHL rumours, they had offered a more lucrative deal than the one he accepted from the Leafs....

Getting Karlsson could make this interesting, but another league executive said Monday the Sharks didn’t have a lot in their prospect pool to offer the Senators.

Plus the Sharks won’t be alone in pursuing Karlsson. It’s believed the Vegas Golden Knights, Tampa Bay Lightning, Washington Capitals and New York Rangers are among the teams that have talked with Senators general manager Pierre Dorion.

I wonder what it would cost the Wings and should even try, because that would set them back pretty far I would imagine.
