    Default Karlsson Signs with Sharts - 8 yrs - $88MM+

    Ouch. At least Dewey and Kopi weren't already breaking down physically when their long term deals were signed. This could be far worse then either of those.

    Even when he's healthy he's a defensive liability...and he'll be a cap killer just like Kane is for them. Wilson seems to be OK with one-dimensional players; not sure how that will work out in the long run.

    Wonder what this means for Pavelski? They've got roughly $12.5MM in cap space and him + quite a few other guys still to sign.

    $11M per year for a Rover!!!

    San Jose will not win a Stanley Cup while he is on their roster.
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    Best news of the offseason yet. Karlsson at 29 is injury prone NOW ala Gaborik. Imagine him at 37yrs old? and making 11m too boot.

    Love it

    Thanks Wilson. 8 years 92 million.
    EK is already breaking down so this deal will be a mess in just a couple of years. Did Wilson read any of the articles on destinations for EK? San Jose was bidding against themselves.

    So now SJ and VGK are in cap hell. The Pacific will be a dumpster fire in no time. Is Calgary the model franchise because they lack a crippling contract? The Coyotes too but they are the Coyotes.

    I guess three years into the deal they can just look at this as having 11 million over the cap when his groin explodes for good
