If trade, when and for what.
If keep, for how long and what dollar value.

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.

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.
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

I’d hate to lose Kalrsson but I’m very afraid of this injury and how it’s 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 he’s dealt then this ain’t a retool. If he’s dealt then I’m sure the blame and hopefully the sword falls on melnyk. I can’t wait for that guy to be gone.
I can’t see Edmonton trading draisitel for hoff and Ceci. Chichi would get crucified.

probably right now for me.
