What the Erik Karlsson trade means for Colorado

The Senators receive center Chris Tierney, defenseman Dylan DeMelo, forward Rudolfs Balcers, forward Josh Norris, a conditional 2019 second-round pick, a conditional 2020 first-round pick. It becomes a first if the Sharks sign him and SJ makes it to the final this season.

"This is the right moment for us to rebuild our team", said Senators general manager Pierre Dorion. "As you said, there's been a lot of noise for nearly a year now, but I never in my wildest imagination thought that I was going to leave this place". "We know we're in a rebuild now and we know this is the best thing in the plan and the rebuild for us to have success In the rebuild".

Karlsson scored nine goals (his lowest full-season total) and registered 53 assists for 62 points in 71 games in 2017-18. "I wish we were standing here during different circumstances".

Ottawa Senators defenceman Erik Karlsson pauses on the ice during the second period of a game against the Arizona Coyotes in Glendale, Ariz., on March, 3, 2018.

"I think they made it very clear in what direction they were going with and unfortunately I wasn't part of that and I respect that it's their decision", he said. Wearing shorts and flip-flops all year round doesn't sound like a bad way to live if you ask me.


The comparisons to Alfredsson's departure for the Detroit Red Wings as an unrestricted free agent in July 2013 are inevitable because Karlsson has roots in the community.

In the end, the defenceman and the Senators did not see eye to eye - with the deal being done on the eve of the first on-ice session at training camp. "Even though there's been a lot of noise for nearly a year now, I never thought in my wildest imagination I was going to leave this place". "It will take me a long time to get over it".

Karlsson is a two-time Norris Trophy victor and led or tied the Senators in scoring the past five years.

If the Senators decided to make this move now, that means contract talks they were having with Karlsson's camp were going nowhere and he had no plans to re-sign here. With Karlsson in the fold, it's likely the Sabres will have the Sharks pick at the next draft.
