San Jose is expected to offer Karlsson an 8-year deal, but it sounds like he's going to wait and see how much he and his wife like the city plus how well the team does, so 30 NHL teams better pray that the Sharks get off to a slow start in time for the TDL.

It's San Jose. It's going to be amazing to live there.

Although going from zero traffic in Ottawa to all day every day traffic in San Jose might help.

I'll bet he could make San Jose throw in a car service.

San Jose kinda sucks, but he could live elsewhere in the Bay Area.

The Lightning are trying to terminate Jake Dotchin's contract for a material breach. People said it was a conditioning issue, but according to Bob McKenzie, Dotchin showed up 30-35 pounds over his last season playing weight.

Everyone I have heard from seems to think that the Senators got hosed in this deal. Surely the Stars or Knights could have given them a better deal...

With him not willing to commit to an extension, the offers were never going to be amazing.

Plus it had to be a Western team.

And one that's not re-building (a.k.a., "just a piece away")

And one willing to trade half their minor league system for one year of a guy with half an ankle.

And not Edmonton since Chiarelli only trades *away* star players.

So... slim pickins for Ottawa there.

Elliotte Friedman is saying he knows what the Stars offered for Karlsson.

If Karlsson doesn't re-sign we may have dodged a bullet.

What a bullshit franchise the Senators are. I hope they never win another hockey game and are forced to move. *f-bomb* those guys.

And even so, it's an offer of a third line winger, fourth line winger, and #6 d-man.
