REPORT: ERIK KARLSSON'S OFFICIAL PRICE TAG REVEALED - CAN THE OILERS DO IT?
Now that San Jose is far from a playoff berth, it looks like Karlsson is poised to enter the trade market as he has previously mentioned that he would love some postseason action and Karlsson + the Sharks have agreed on it.
The primary issue is his deal; Karlsson will make $11.5 million per year until 2027–2028, which is only $1 million less than what Connor McDavid makes.
The asking price for Erik Karlsson has been made public by NHL insider Frank Seravalli, and it's very intriguing.
That is a significant asking price; even with 18% retained, that is a deal for more than $9 million year, which MANY candidates will not even want to consider signing. Karlsson might not find playoff hockey anytime soon if he is interested in it, and you can bet the Oilers are officially out on Karlsson, if they were ever even ''in''.
SHOULD THE OILERS ATTEMPT TO MAKE CAP ROOM FOR KARLSSON?
