The Ottawa Senators Will Not Give Away Erik Karlsson

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

If Karlsson isn’t traded by the time training camp opens Sept. 13 at the Canadian Tire Centre, then the expectation is he will report to honour his deal. He has been skating at the Bell Sensplex in Kanata off and on since late June to prepare for the start of next season — wherever that might take place.

If general manager Pierre Dorion is going to make this trade, it has to be right and he’s not going to give away a franchise player. The Senators are not going to get caught up in false deadlines. The reality is the organization will make this move when the timing and, more importantly, the return is right.

It’s believed five to six teams, including the Vegas Golden Knights, Tampa Bay Lightning, Dallas Stars and San Jose Sharks, remain interested in Karlsson. It’s not known what the asking price is, but it would stand to reason that it’s likely hefty and includes multiple pieces.
