    Erik Karlsson Hoping for Offers from Senators, Canadiens

    San Jose Sharks defenceman Erik Karlsson is expected to be one of the most coveted free agents on the market this summer, and he might be hoping to return to where he rose to stardom.

    Karlsson is looking for the Ottawa Senators to make a competitive offer for his services, according to Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun. Brennan cites Karlsson’s wife Melinda’s “homesickness” as the main reason for a possible reunion with the Senators. Melinda was born and raised in Canada’s capital, and would prefer to live in closer proximity to her family.

    Whether the interest is mutual remains to be seen since Ottawa is in the midst of a rebuild. The remainder of the 29-year-old’s prime years may not coincide with the Senators’ window should they return to contention down the road.

    Brennan also mentions the Canadiens as potentially being on Karlsson’s radar since Montreal and Ottawa are only separated by 200 kilometres. The Canadiens have more than $11 million in projected cap room to play with, but they already carry two costly right-shot defencemen on their roster in Shea Weber ($7.86-million cap hit) and Jeff Petry ($5.5 million).

    I'm over 50 and have a bad back and I'm not sure I would take millions to play for Ottawa at this point.

    I was going to make a snide, sexist, remark as well but I remember that she had a major health crisis in the past year, that has to be the reason.

    I don't think there's any chance the Rangers go after him. Even if it comes out that they are, it may well be a ploy from Karlsson's agent to get the big fish biting. He just doesn't make sense on any level for the Rangers.

    Especially after hearing JD talk. I can't see it happening.

    Sure it does. It's just the reasons against signing him are stronger and better.

    Signing Karlsson isn’t a bad idea.

    Signing Karlsson when you have a plethora of horrible cap hits for worthless defenders... yeah, that can be an issue

    But only for the next 2 or 3 seasons, depending on buyouts

    I'm passing all the way here. My crystal ball says he's broken down halfway through a long deal and we aren't close enough to eat that shit for a good first half.

    Never been the same player since foot/leg injury. Now an injury prone player on the down side, immho. Wouldn't sign with Ottawa, now he's going back? The rumor mill is whirling!
