Erik Karlsson Traded to San Jose

Recommended Posts

Definitely deserves it's own thread. It's officially official

@PierreVLeBrun
Told that the official trade call was just completed. Erik Karlsson has been traded to the San Jose Sharks

@SunGarrioch
 Sources say the #Sens have dealt Erik Karlsson to the Sharks in exchange for Chris Tierney, Dylan DeMelo, Josh Norris, Rudolfs Balcers, 2020 1st, 2019 2nd and two conditional picks.

@pi2000They have to send some money back the other way tho?

They do but not those deals. Those are long term deals for big money. Plus if you're getting Karlsson, you want to win now, and Burns and Couture are pivotal for that

That return for Kane at the deadline would have made half this fanbase mad.


And that's only a slight exaggeration. WTF?

Ottawa had 0 leverage. This is what they get

Posted this in the other one, but don't the Sabres still have a shot at getting that 2020 1st if the Sharks somehow miss the playoffs and win the lotto this year?

What happens if somehow, someway SJ misses the playoffs and get a lottery pick, which pushes their 2019 1st they gave to BUF to a 2020 1st....   then what does OTT get?

I don't even think they need to win the lottery.... if they miss the playoffs, that pick is in the lottery so it gets deferred to 2020.

As per Vogl.. "And since the Sharks have given their 2020 first-round pick to Ottawa, I guess it doesn't matter if they make the playoffs. The option to slide to 2020 no longer exists, so Buffalo will have the Sharks' 2019 first-rounder."

You know what's insane about all this? Ottawa traded Hoffman to SJ who went right away and traded him to Florida for a better return. So what does Dorion and Ottawa do? They call San Jose right the fck back up and get shanked again. Unreal

That makes sense. I was going to guess that whichever 1st buffalo got, Ottawa would get the other. 

This is actually really, really good news for us then. The 2019 draft is supposed to be loaded, and now we have 3 first round picks for it

One of the funny things is how mad other fanbases are. Stars/Knights/Lightning fans can't believe their teams didn't beat that offer

Wait until we see the conditions on the picks. I have a feeling the return will be better once the dust settles 

Conditionals are almost always a 4th to a 3rd or some garbage like that. I would bet one of them involves a 5th round pick

I think for the Stars though, it came down to Heiskanen, and that was a no go  Lightning the writing was on the wall once Yzerman left, and the Knights knew it and went and got Pacioretty anyways.
