Erik Karlsson to be traded?

Thought this deserved its own thread. Rumours are that Karlsson is about to be traded. The team asked him to give management a list of team he does not to be traded to(he has a no trade clause). The Senators are truly awful and they want to go on a full rebuild and my thoughts are that Karlsson doesn’t want to go through a full rebuild so he won’t re-sign with the team and the Sens don’t want to lose him for nothing.

The Sens will definitely be asking for a lot in return. Should be interesting to see where he ends up.

Hmmmm. Interesting.

I'd love to see him on the Sharks or Leafs (although I have zero idea what teams make the most sense and which ones have enough to give up).

I'll definitely be following this story closely.

I don't know why but I got a feeling that Karlsson will be LA bound. I know that Karlsson & Doughty wanna play together and they're looking to bring in John Tavares in the offseason to form a superteam ala Miami Heat with LeBron, Bosh & Wade a few years ago.

I was thinking L.A, too. However, would they be able to both re-sign Doughty and Karlsson when the time comes? Both will be asking for $10M+/season. I know the cap will be going up in the next two seasons’, but I just have a hard time seeing it.

Here are the Kings’ cap situation:
