No word on an extension, which doesn't surprise me. As Skyo points out, the Sharks have to renew 20 contracts for next year, so they could very well have just loaded up for Jumbola last run.
Well they paid a rental price so maybe.

I can see them finding room for a Karlsson extension.
I mean they could, but if they were it have been done by now ala MaxPac' quick re-sign with Vegas.

I assume SJ knows that EK isn't going to re-sign with em & they are fine with it, as EK likely already has his eyes set on another team July 1st but will go for a Cup run with the Sharks to kill off his last year on his contract for the time being, plus shake off the Sens dust/memories while out West.

Erik Karlsson has not signed an extention.
He says he and his wife wants to get a feel of the place first, before they decide.

They really liked it in Ottawa and are keeping their house there for the time being.

Hey, if he does not extend in San Jose, then returns to Ottawa...
That'd put the deal in a completely different light, eh?

No, this was an interview in Aftonbladet. Tabloid newspaper.
As most tabloids, a tendency toward the dramatic, but it's usually fairly reliable.

And the speculation on a return is my own, but I mean, hey - no extension signed + keeping the house in Ottawa = ??? :|

Not sure why everyone is stunned by the underwhelming return Ottawa received in the Karlsson trade. That was easy to telegraph. No sign and trade guarantees from the Karlsson camp why would a team gut their futures for one year of service from Karlsson?

Considering it was Dorion pulling the trigger it’s little wonder Ottawa got ass rammed. The guy is the worst GM in the league

Apparently, Henrik Zetterberg has been forced to retire from hockey with a degenerative back condition.

Detroit will put him on LTIR.

Sedins, Hossa, Sharp and now Zetterberg. Anyone I'm missing?

Who's next on the list?

Apparently JG Pageau is out indefinitely after tearing his achilles tendon during a team fitness session. Good thing Dorion got quantity in the Karlsson trade!

Poor Ottawa. I feel bad for their fans. It has to be Melnyk's bad mojo.

No, we need Bobby Lu on LTIR - its the retirement that will kill us!

Tampa's Jake Dotchin placed on unconditional waivers.
#TBLightning have placed D Jake Dotchin on unconditional waivers for the purpose of terminating his contract for material breach of contract. The team will have no further comment on the matter
elliotte:

Certainly, more will become known as the days go by. But, apparently, TB was extremely unhappy with Dotchin’s conditioning at arrival. We will see how the process plays out

I think it's probably worse than that.

Something worse that has a side effect of him ending up out of shape?

He got suspended for all of the 2017 preseason as well

... and was mysteriously benched for most of last season's 2nd half.

Too bad because he had some skills and was a MAJOR ASSHOLE. :blush:

Leaves fans hate him for giving Kapanen a concussion (AHL) and taking a run at Matthews knees.

EDIT: Forgot about Dotchin's late-hit/injury on Leaves' Gauthier! :thumbs:
