Re: STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS ST. LOUIS BLUES!!!!!
SHARKS doing the right thing, keeping the NHL's most considerable free agent with this major extension.
This matches the Drew Doughtry deal with the Los Angeles Kings, and it also certainly means that the Sharks are, no matter what, beginning something of a new era.
13 million in cap space exists for San Jose following this titanic extension, which will prove insufficient to bring back Timo Meier and Joe Pavelski, not to mention a plethora of other players. Joe Thornton is probably suiting up for one more rodeo at a terrific discounted rate, but as much as the Sharks doubtless recognized the import of keeping Karlsson in the fold, even at the expensive price tag and with it dragging out to when he will be 37 years old, they may be left scrambling to throw this roster back together following that bold move.
Let's Go SHARKS!
Braun is already a causality, and Pavelski will be next I'm sure. Don't know how they sign Jumbo, Pavs & Timo with the cap they have left.
For the defending Stanley Cup Champion Blues I only wonder what they will sign Binnington for, and if Edmundson will be moved before the start of the season. Hoping they can re-up Schenn to a good deal but after what Kevin Hayes signed for Braden will probably ask for close to 9 mil AAV x 8, hoping he takes 5 years 6 tops or he might be rental bate. Which I don't want as Schenn was essential to the Blues cup run.
Favs: Moxley, Shibata, Nagata, Omega, Bryan, Naito, Okada, Ishii, Ibushi, White, Ospreay
