Blockbuster Three-Way Deal CLB-LA-PHI!!! Rumor:Karlsson To TOR (E3)

June 6, 2023, 4:34 PM ET [54 Comments]
Multiple sources reporting a three-way deal between the Blue Jackets, Flyers, and Kings with defenseman Ivan Provorov ending up with Columbus, defenseman Sean Walker and goalie Cal Petersen going to Philadelphia, with the Kings serving as a go-between and retaining 30% of Provorov's deal.

Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman is saying that the Kings will extend defenseman Vladislav Gavrikov with the cleared cap space.


Oh how I love this kind of text.

Even back at the trade deadline I was starting to hear rumors of Erik Karlsson perhaps being moved to Toronto. However there was no team willing to take on any salary and that proved too much for Toronto and also Edmonton. However, I was kept hearing the Leafs were going to revisit it. I even wrote at the time that there was another team kind of urging San Jose not to move him yet and wait for the draft.

That team was Toronto I was just told, and in a separate text I was informed that the Leafs we3re working a deal that was VERY intriguing for San Jose…

The San Jose Sharks do you want to move him while his value so high… But they also realize that return has to have some pizzazz to it. Some thing that people can get behind. With their future star, and my long lost nephew, Eklund ready for the NHL the thought is why not bring along another player with Swedish roots to mentor….

Nylander despite being born in Canada has duel Citizenship and has played for team Sweden internationally. Erik Karlsson

There are also some out there who wonder if Dubas may consider him as a possibility for the Penguins…

Karlsson is a hell of a Quarterback and Toronto and Pittsburgh has great receivers..

Anyway, the text today came from a source in Sweden who knows San Jose extremely closely…

“Nylander, pick and a “major prospect” for Karlsson and 2025 1st.”

Would you do I it?
