Trade or keep?

If trade, when and for what.

If keep, for how long and what dollar value.

To trade him, I'd want something incredible in return. For example, if traded to the Leafs (would never happen, but just for example), I'd want Mitch Marner, Morgan Rielly, and another top prospect or a couple first round picks. The return has to be huge, almost to the point where it's actually an over-payment.

That said, my preference is to keep him. He's a generational talent. I agree this year he's been way off where he normally is, but I think that's a Boucher/Melnyk issue more than anything, and he'll return to form once those issues are dealt with. I'd sign him for 8 years at $12-$13M per.

No way IMO. Boucher loves Karlsson, he's one of his guys. Karlsson had his best year last year, nothing has changed since then in regards to the "Melnyk issue". It's pretty obvious he isn't the same player he was due to the surgery. And he may never be again. Right now, he is not a generational talent. My preference is to trade him if he remains the same, because I think his contract would be crippling. We cannot have him playing 25+ mins a night if he is this much of a liability. We should see what he's like at the start of next season after a summer of rehab.

Preference is to sign but at a reasonable price. †

Sign 8 x 10 based on injury risk. †

Trade - Iíd need a young top 6 centre with #1 potential, 2 x 1st round picks for 2019 and 2020. †Deal early in the summer.†

Ex: Draisitl, Barkov, Eichel. †Never going to happen but itís what Iíd ask.

I sort of hope it becomes public knowledge that Karlsson is requesting a trade. It would give Dorion green light to trade him. I do really think the Sens should trade him and spread that money/skill out over other areas of the team. On the flip side it would also make the fan base hate Melnyk more which could play out in a lot of different ways (some good, some bad).

If Karlsson actually wants to stay here then you sign him to a 8 x $10M and you clean house in other areas. Rather than selling off assets for futures, I hope Dorion uses the trade deadline this year to improve his team.

Examples:

a) Can the Sens make a move for OEL with a combo of players such as Brass/Ceci?
b) Would the Sens be willing to trade Anderson for an injured Corey Crawford? Provide Chicago with cap relief and insurance if they're serious about a playoff run, while getting Crawford off their books.
c) Can the Sens free cap space or trade Ceci for Gudbransson?
d) Can the Sens move Phaneuf to LA for Pearson+Gaborik?

Adding futures right now doesn't make sense for Ottawa. If they trade Karlsson then yes, blow it up, but if he's going to re-sign use this year as an off-year and try to make some 2 for 1 trades to set up for next year and beyond

There's no way he would sign a $10 million deal.

Ceci for Gudbranson is terrible, bigdown grade.

LA wouldn't trade Pearson in that deal.

You would have to put a gun to my head to give Karlsson 11 per. Youíd have to pull the trigger to go past 11.

Kalrsson will get more than 10 per year. You can bet on that. Either here or elsewhere.

Iíd hate to lose Kalrsson but Iím very afraid of this injury and how itís affected his play. Then again, we faced the same problem when he got his foot cut last time and bionic man came back stronger.

If heís dealt then this ainít a retool. If heís dealt then Iím sure the blame and hopefully the sword falls on melnyk. I canít wait for that guy to be gone.

I canít see Edmonton trading draisitel for hoff and Ceci. Chichi would get crucified.

I wouldn't blame Melnyk for Karlsson wanting more than his worth.
Edmonton would be hard pressed to get a better deal than Hoff and Ceci. Our impression of Ceci as fans is far lower than other GMs. RHS 2nd pairing D men who are still in their RFA years AND can chew up 25 minutes of ice time are very, very hard to come by. If we didn't have a top pairing RHS dman eating up around 28 minutes I wouldn't even think of dealing him. I have a feeling Ceci will do very well with a fresh start.

My guess is Dorion starts sizing up his options during the All Star game with changes starting next week. At this point I think everyone is on the table aside from Duchene, Stone, and the prospects. Doesn't mean everyone will be traded but if something incredible is offered for Karlsson (established top NHLers with term and high-end prospects) then you consider it. The Sens cannot afford another Spezza like trade.

Heís my favourite player, so to answer the question, he is untradeable.

After thinking more about it the smart move is to cash in on EK this summer. What we see this year is likely what you will get in years 5-8 even if he returns to form next year. Let someone else deal with that anchor of a contract in 5 years.

At this point a top 5 pick seems all but a lock. How would you draft the top 5 prospects in terms of ranking relative to need?

Dahlin

probably right now for me.

What's the upside of Svechnikov over Zadina and Tkachuk?
