“Okay, Buffalo Sabres actually quicking. Watching the Sabres, Kyle Okposo is on an expiring contract. He’s a UFA on the finish of the season. Doesn’t appear as if he’s in any hurry, both facet actually, to get an extension performed.

Look for this one to get punted in the direction of the tip of the season.”

Sportsnet: Elliotte Friedman on 32 Thoughts on Erik Karlsson, and the Senators and Canucks discussing Nikita Zaitsev and Tyler Myers.

“Well clearly that exploded this week. Mike Grier speaking about it after the GM conferences.

Number one, I don’t imagine Karlsson at this time limit has been requested to waive for any explicit group. I don’t suppose that’s there.

Number two, what I feel the Sharks are actually doing is making an attempt to find out with 4 years and $11.5 million per season remaining on his deal, what groups are keen to do for that contract, and that may form any potential trades.

Mentioned Ottawa. Very unlikely they’re in a position to do Karlsson however I do suppose them and Vancouver talked a couple of Tyler Myers – Nikita Zaitsev kind commerce. I don’t suppose it ever received to Myers. My buddy Rick Dhaliwal reported that he didn’t flip down a commerce. I don’t suppose it ever received to him. I do suppose the 2 groups talked about it. It would give Vancouver a little bit of cap aid, Ottawa assistance on protection. I don’t know the place it stands proper now or if it may be revived but it surely was at some stage mentioned.”
