Erik Karlsson’s days in San Jose are numbered.
But what do these veterans think of Erik Karlsson? The answer to that question is pretty simple. In fact, both Crosby and Letang have given Dubas their stamp of approval, and Letang even says he’s willing to revisit his role to make room for EK65.
The Quebecer would even like to give him his quarterback spot on the first power-play wave to “make things work”. That says a lot about his desire to see Karlsson end up in Pittsburgh:
After all, Kyle Dubas seems to be working hard right now to complete the trade and he’s being aggressive on the issue. Yes, we’re hearing about the Hurricanes…
It’s particularly complicated in Pittsburgh right now, because the Penguins don’t have much to give the Sharks, and because the team is about $2.3 million over the salary cap.
Need I remind you that Erik Karlsson, well… he’s getting $11.5 M per year until the end of the 2026-2027 season?
Obviously, the Penguins won’t go after him if the Sharks don’t withhold part of his salary. That said…
Dubas has a lot of work to do to find a way to bring EK65 to town. It’s far from impossible, but it’s also far from simple.
– I’d pay good money to see a Canadiens VS Nordiques game, just like in the old days.
What do you think is the greatest rivalry in sports history?
