TRAIKOS: Sharks join ranks of super teams by adding Karlsson

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Open this
Shannon Reynolds | 14 September, 2018, 06:51

The reason Karlsson ended up on the trade market obviously begins and ends with Eugene Melnyk, who (to borrow a phrase from the Senators owner) turned the team into a "dumpster". Sometimes you have to wait a little bit more time.

And we're just getting started.

Erik Karlsson is on his way out of Ottawa.

"This is the right moment for us to rebuild our team, and shape our future with a faster, younger and more competitive team on the ice", Senators general manager Pierre Dorion said. Forward Francis Perron is headed to the Sharks along with Karlsson. The superstar spent nine seasons playing for the Senators, and things certainly did not end on the best of terms.

San Jose included two players off its current roster in the trade, Chris Tierney and Dylan DeMelo, which came as a shock to current Sharks players. The Senators also will receive a first-rounder in 2021 or 2022 if Karlsson is on an Eastern Conference roster this season. "This trade represents the best opportunity for the Ottawa Senators to rebuild towards a consistent excellence that we are striving for".

Oh, and the Bruins absolutely do not have to worry about Karlsson torching them in April again if the Senators somehow repeated their straight-up weird trend of having one bad year (last year) followed by a playoff-caliber year. Erik Karlsson, for what it seemed like, was probably going to be here for just another year. "For the benefit of the organization, for the benefit of the rebuild, for the succession of the rebuild, I think today we made the proper decision".

Sam's Club Offers $100 Off iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max Buy
That's still more than the iPhone SE, however, which sold for $399, making it the cheapest iPhone the firm had sold. Sam's Club is offering a $100 gift card to members who purchase an iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max next week.

The rumor of the summer - and at one point looking like a lock to actually happen - Karlsson is instead moving out West, where he will remain far away from the Bruins team he singlehandedly dominated in the first round in 2017. And despite sounding like a straight-up imaginary player or somebody that the AI creates when you get too deep into a franchise mode in National Hockey League 19, Balcers is indeed real, and had 23 goals and 48 points in 67 AHL contests a season ago.

The Sharks made the addition without giving up a top-six forward or top-four defenseman.

"I never really thought it was a possibility until I got the call this morning that we were doing it", coach Peter DeBoer said.

Most reaction to the trade has been "Ottawa did not get almost enough". "It's always going to be my home and it's always going to be a community that I'm going to be as much involved in as I possibly can and give back in whatever way that I can". They still have forwards Evander Kane, Joe Pavelski, Logan Couture, Tomas Hertl and Joe Thornton, as well as a goalie in Martin Jones who won 30 games and had a 2.55 goals-against average last season. Norris was a 2017 first-round pick by the Sharks, and posted eight goals and 23 points in 37 games with his freshman season with MI past year.

The 19-year old Norris was drafted 19th overall in the first round of the 2017 draft by the Sharks.
