Sharks could feasibly do this without breaking their bank.

Rumors indicate the deal with the sharks includes a conditional pick that stipulates he can't be flipped to Florida.

Why would Ottawa be interested in making the Sharks better, after the ol' switcheroo screwing they received in the Hoffman flip? One would think Dorion should hold a grudge, no?

The Sharks don't have their 1st round pick for 2019, they don't have a top D prospect, so it would be Meier, Merkley, a 2020 1st and...what?

Chmelevski? Melnyk has strong affiliations to Ukraine, and being a former Ottawa 67 ( Sens notoriously like 'local guys' )

I'm absolutely exhausted from all of this. My sympathies to Isles fans for dealing with the Tavares fiasco for so long.

He and Burns on the blueline are a scary top pair of D men. Signed, Captain Obvious.

I don't think Tampa lets anybody else do the deal. They have too many horses in reserve. More guys in their system then they have places to move them.

Has SJ looked at their defense? No holes. They have a pretty stacked defense.

They need help at forward.

If the Stars are still in, how about Karlsson for Seguin? πŸ˜€πŸ˜πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜„πŸ˜…πŸ˜†πŸ˜‰πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‹πŸ˜Žβ˜Ί

They're going to pull a Chicago and put him at forward.

Agreed - I don't think they have the horses to get this done.

Maybe Meier/another prospect/one of their second rd picks in 2019 and a conditional first in 2020 - pending a resign of EK but bet it will be lottery protected

My thoughts exactly... I mean, any team should be after him, but they need to replace Thornton imo, not add another Brent Burns.

Agreed - has to be Tampa - they have the prospects, roster players and picks. Plus EK will resign in a heartbeat. Might have to take a contract back to make it work (girardi?) expiring contract

Although, they did try to land Tavares, so it's not for lack of effort.

EK and Burns are basically half forwards the way they play and produce - cant pass that up if the chance is there.

More or less Karlsson is both of that , just put Burns back on the wing.

Edit: @Revised12: same thought.

Yes, you can. I don't care how good Karlsson and Burns are at scoring, they don't replace what you need in a quality center.

Loading up just because you can isn't a wise move and can easily blow up in a team's face.

Clearly it is going to be a quick flip by the Sharks again like Hoffman. They'll quickly flip EK to MTL for the newly acquired Tatar.
