Just to clear his 6.5 million off the cap...i would take a 7th for him. Enough other d men have passed him. Just give me cap space

Salary dumping him is the only reason I would, yea I agree

Chris Johnston on FAN960 says he would be surprised to see Erik Karlsson back in San Jose, says it has been hard on his family with his wife being from Ottawa. Says the NY Rangers are the most likely destination for him, Lightning are 2nd, he’d take a discount to play with Hedman

if the Rangers do actually sign Karlsson I want St Louis to win that series so he can start resting ASAP
- jimbro83

That’s another thing, I don’t think he’s had a full summer to heal up yet has he? Lost in conference final, then was traded to SJ last year deadline

I think they'll talk to both of them during negotiating period

I still see getting both. But they’d have to do some serious work to fit them

Shatty
Vesey
Nam
Pionk
Probably Kreider
Maybe even Buch
all gone

Karlsson may be forced to take less regardless, playing right now is probably hurting his wallet in the summah

Eh, Buch I’d be upset. But no one else I’d cry over

You all love Kreider around here, but he’s another one I’m sick of haha.

You are getting rid of 2 top liners, 2 defenseman and a bunch of role players to fit 2 people.

I'm sure they will, but that's like $20M in salary added to the cap...the Rangers would have to ship out some salary. I guess they could dump Shatty and that would do it but that's gonna make things tough when it comes time to sign the kids in a couple years.

You don't need to do all of that. Getting rid of Shatenkrik and Namestnikov gives you an extra 10 million on top of the of the 19 million, (Extra rumored 3.5 million dollar bump) in space.

I really wonder if they won't have interest in Duchene. The Rangers center depth isn't great after Zibanejad.

$3.5M is the max increase and I believe someone tweeted last week that the cap may not rise as much as some expected. When I (frank) around with CapFriendly's armchair GM tool I usually use $82M just to be safe

Out with the old, in with the new

I’m a Nam guy you know that (Vesey kinda too, never really disliked him), but if I can get both of them I’m willing to pretty much do anything within reason. Even sexually

That is fair. But throw in Vsey in trade, at that give the Rangers like 29-31 million in space minus Vesey, Namestnikov and Shattenkirk.
