Lindell, Honka, Shore, 1st. Let's do it
And Kalrsson isnt? The conversation starts with Heiskanen. If it doesn’t you go elsewhere. It’s gonna take an org’s best prospect in a deal to make it happen. Just like including Glass out of Vegas. It’s freaking Karlsson we’re talking about here. The game’s best Dman.
It’s Heiskanen, a first, and then some...
To play devil's advocate, why would he sign in Dallas? And if he won't sign there, who really wants him? Vegas? TB - who can't possibly fit him under the cap, I really don't see how. NYRangers? Sure, but they're one of the teams that probably won't let go of their top prospects for Karlsson because they're trying to do it right this time and they also know they're the most desirable location in the league and could stand to wait and see what happens next July.
For my money, it's got to be TB, but things have to get really creative for that to work. TB has done nothing this off-season. They're good enough to get to the Conference Finals, but not past that, although each year is different. They need that injection and they need to go all in.
Vegas giving up Theodore and Glass + is a mistake. They're nowhere near good enough to do what they did last year, I don't care what anyone says. SJ are pretenders, Dallas are pretenders.
I think we're about to get Cussed in that he won't sign with anyone except maybe 3 teams and those 3 teams are VERY nervous of him post apocalyptic injury and are very nervous of signing him to a 95 million dollar contract and are very nervous to give up top prospects because of the way the NHL works.
The only GM who SHOULD do this is Yzerman, but he doesn't have the cap space and I doubt he has the pieces, although Sergachev (or whatever that D-man's name is is a good start).
