DownUndaCanuck Posted February 16 Share Posted February 16 It seems like the impossible man to move, especially within their own division and with that monster cap hit, but Karlsson would be so fun to watch playing with McDavid and the Oilers and it'd be nice to see Edmonton destroy their team for a chance to go deep and win now. Sacrifice all defence and just try and outscore every team, and with Draisaitl, McDavid and Karlsson all on the ice at the same time, you'd like their chances. Edmonton have around 1.9M in cap space at the deadline thanks to LTIR. Karlsson is obviously on a 11.5M cap hit for the next 5 years, isn't getting younger, but is probably going to win a Norris this year. TO EDM: Erik Karlsson (2M retained) TO SJS: Puljujarvi + Tyson Barrie + 1st + 2nd round picks SJS could retain a bit more but that'd just squeeze in cap-wise, and in the off-season they'll have to off-load some contracts. Poolparty is an obvious cap dump but short-term, Barrie has kind of fallen out of favour in Edmonton so this is basically a trade to upgrade Barrie into Karlsson. Sure, SJS retain a tiny bit but they take those picks and run, for such a bad team they lack high-end picks in the next few drafts. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
