Rumors Have Stars As Frontrunner To Acquire Generational Talent Erik Karlsson

Rumors Have Stars As Frontrunner To Acquire Generational Talent Erik Karlsson

Erik Karlsson is part of some trade rumors, and they happen to involve the Dallas Stars. The Ottawa Senators have had a tough year. Between the Mike Hoffman situation, and Randy Lee, the franchise is in a tough spot, and it’s getting worse. Less so if you’re a Dallas Stars fan.

NHL source tells The Athletic he thinks Dallas has emerged as front runner for Karlsson and Bobby Ryan will not be part of the deal.

Breaking down the Mike Hoffman trades

Breaking down the Mike Hoffman trades

For two hours yesterday, Mike Hoffman was a Shark. Why didn't he stay in San Jose? Yesterday was busy for the Sharks. Doug Wilson made a series of trades, acting as a middle man to send Mike Hoffman from Ottawa to Florida and picking up several draft picks along the way.

Mike Hoffman Trade - The Aftermath

Mike Hoffman traded to San Jose Sharks then flipped to Florida Panthers For all the Sens who couldn’t wait until the awful season was over, I hope you are doing well this week.
