Flyers’ Free Agency Targets: Karlsson & Karlsson

The Philadelphia Flyers would be best served this offseason by targeting Karlsson, or perhaps Karlsson. On second thought, they should go after both of them. I’m talking, of course, about Erik Karlsson of the San Jose Sharks, and William Karlsson of the Vegas Golden Knights. The Flyers are getting a close look at both of […] The post Flyers’ Free Agency Targets: Karlsson & Karlsson appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

Before edging the Edmonton Oilers 3-2 last night, San Jose had lost nine of 10 games. First place in the Western Conference and the Pacific Division had been long lost. And now, the Sharks might have lost Timo Meier for a while. Let’s hope...
