Sharks join ranks of super teams by adding Karlsson — TRAIKOS

"You get to a certain point and it's probably best for all parties to move on", said Dorion. "This trade represents the best opportunity for the Ottawa Senators to rebuild towards a consistent excellence that we are striving for". Ottawa begins the season against the Chicago Blackhawks on October 4.

Karlsson had been rumored to be on the move since before last season's trade deadline, with the Sharks closely monitoring the situation throughout.

San Jose is sending the Senators a first-round pick in 2019 or 2020, a second-round pick in 2019, forwards Chris Tierney, Josh Norris and Rudolfs Balcers, defenseman Dylan DeMelo and two conditional draft picks.

"I don't think that I ever, in my wildest imagination, ever thought that I would leave this place", Karlsson said.

He has just one year remaining on his contract and is scheduled to hit unrestricted free agency on July 1. Over the years, Wilson has acquired players like Thornton, Burns, Kane and Dan Boyle in trades and signed all of them to long-term deals. They REALLY want this done.But as of this writing.the price is still crazy.one source confirmed it was four pieces.another said that the feeling is he's going to Tampa next year on a long term deal.so why would anyone else give up 4 parts for only a year of Karlsson?

"It's a big boost when you add a guy like that, a guy that's won a lot of accolades and has established himself as one of the best in the league, it'll help", Vlasic said.

Ottawa Senators defenceman Erik Karlsson pauses on the ice during the second period of a game against the Arizona Coyotes in Glendale, Ariz., on March, 3, 2018. "As you said, there's been a lot of noise for nearly a year now, but I never in my wildest imagination thought that I was going to leave this place". "It will take me a long time to get over it".

The Senators, who did offer Karlsson an extension over the summer, believed this was the best option. In 627 career regular season games over nine seasons with Ottawa, he has tallied 126 goals and 518 points. "We're all real excited to get him here".

The 24-year-old Tierney played the biggest role for San Jose of any of the players traded to Ottawa, spending much of the year as a third-line center. "We've had discussions about it, but you never really feel that it's going to come to fruition, a deal like this, until you actually get that call". Forward Drake Batherson, 20, was fourth in points per game in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League last season with 77 points (29 goals, 48 assists) in 51 games for Blainville-Boisbriand.

Yes, a team that went to the final in 2016 and already had Brent Burns and Marc-Edouard Vlasic on the back end just added a two-time Norris Trophy victor who was regarded as a top-three player in the world at this time a year ago. He has 41 goals and 63 assists in 284 career games.

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