It wont happen. Look how much cap space we just sucjed up on worthless pegs including (frank)ing hickey. Besides there's a zero% chance he's coming here.
- Cptmjl

the isles absolutly have the money to pay him and lou will offer it for sure, what better player to get after losing tavares? at this point they really have to try. also we would have to take ryans contract but im ok with that

Cannot say Isles would be Karlsson's number one team, but I do not think it's impossible he would come especially since they have Barzal, Lou, and Trotz.
- ses111

Dude no offense I know I can be emotional(haha)but you're (frank)ing nuts if you think Lou who just lost his star center and signed garbage yesterday and today for the upcoming season, a good coach, and a kid that won the Calder is going to inspire one of the biggest stars in the nhl to sign with this car wreck which is getting worse by the hour. Like I said I'm willing to see what else Lou does but he isn't exactly looking like someone any of us have hoped for and believe me Karrlson is well aware of that after playing for a train wreck his entire career. He's going somewhere stable that's going to win. We are probably further away from that right now than any other team in the league.

One good thing whoever is Isles GM at the time will probably not let him walk for nothing and should be able to get a ton for him if needed. Do not even want to think about Barzal leaving.

Maybe it's part of the plan to get rid of Ladd or Clutterbuck.

Cannot really argue with you Cpt. I'm not putting much stock into it at all. I would just expect Lou to try to talk to him. Karlsson can always tell Lou to take a hike and no harm done.

I'm still waiting for this magic to happen. I dont hate Lou and I'm willing to give the guy a shat load of time dont get me wrong but yesterday and today was pretty (frank)ing terrible imo and I'm not referring to Tavares in any way that's not his fault. I'm hoping these crap signings are part of a bigger plan(who knows maybe he's going in full rebuild?)but from where I'm sitting and what he just spent while extending Hickey it isn't looking pretty. Not in any way shape or form.

Not sure they would give him the shot but he sure could push for one...think Bellows would beat him out this year.....by the looks of it don't think they will give Bellows a chance to compete either

He will talk to him for sure but that's where it'll end. I would love the guy here but I can't see how there's even a remote chance.

I get Cpt's point but you never know. Maybe he'll love the money and NY? No harm in Lou reaching out and talking to Karlsson. He can only say no.

I know its been a rough couple of days but in all reality..it could be the plan..stay bad for a year or 2 ....protect what you really want to protect and not be forced to give up a 1st round draft pick to protect a team not worth protecting..then call up those that are ready and jettison off those garbage players
