Sharks Acquire Erik Karlsson From Senators

Sharks Acquire Erik Karlsson From Senators

"It's one of those deals when you're dealing with a trade at this level, you want to be on the ground, and be there in person in case anything needs to be addressed", Wilson said from Ottawa in a phone interview Thursday on The Happy Hour.

"This is the year", forward Evander Kane said. "And doing our rebuild, we're getting the best assets and the most assets and that's how our fans have to look at it".

The San Jose Sharks have acquired two-time Norris Trophy-winning defenceman Erik Karlsson from the Ottawa Senators.

The winger is a relatively untested prospect who racked up 108 points in 62 games in his final season in the QMJHL (2015-16). "They both love it in Ottawa and we'll just let nature take its course to see what happens in the future", Dorion said. "It's a statement I think". And he became an even bigger star after that, notching 13 goals and 32 assists in 2011-12 and then posting over 60 points in every season since then (except 2012-13, which saw both a National Hockey League lockout and then a 10-week injury for Karlsson), winning the James Norris Memorial Trophy as the NHL's top defenseman in 2012 and 2015, and being named the team's captain in October 2014.

"It's insane. It's exciting", said Burns, who won the Norris Trophy in 2017. It's a tough part of the business when you see guys go. That's not something to get very excited about. He's a huge, huge talent.

Liberia president is 'oldest international' ever — George Weah
On the same day his father was appearing for Liberia , Weah junior started the USA's 1-0 friendly win over Mexico. Liberian President George Weah has said he wants his country to emulate Nigeria in terms of football development.

The "plan" from Melnyk seems pretty clear: slash the budget as much as possible for a few years before moving the team to LeBreton, and then selling them for as high as he can. He's expressed that to us, that we are a place he'd like to be, and same thing [for] us back to him. Karlsson makes them even better, and while they gave up a fair bit for him, none of the players they're sending the other way have exactly been crucial for them so far. "He can lead rushes, he can get back, he's great with the puck, good shot, good vision".

The Sharks made the addition without giving up a top-six forward or top-four defenseman.

And so, it has come to pass. Karlsson to San Jose, for a package of prospects and picks. Burns and Marc-Edouard Vlasic are two options.

"I never really thought it was a possibility until I got the call this morning that we were doing it", coach Peter DeBoer said. "I don't know what the timeframe is on that because of his immigration and things like that, but we'll get him in here and then we'll start to look at some of those things". If San Jose re-signs Karlsson, Ottawa receives a conditional 2021 second-round selection - or a first-round pick (not lottery protected) if the Sharks reach the Stanley Cup final in 2019. Karlsson now has one year left on an expiring contract that will pay him $7.5 million next season but has a cap hit of $6.5 million. "But, unfortunately, we're here under these circumstances and, again, that's not something I'm going to go into detail about". They went 45-27-10 past year, finishing sixth in the conference, and then swept the Anaheim Ducks in the first round before losing to the eventual Western Conference champion Vegas Golden Knights. We're in the mode of trying to win right now, and I think that's something that's attractive to him.
