“Okay, Buffalo Sabres truly quicking. Watching the Sabres, Kyle Okposo is on an ending agreement. He’s a UFA at the end of the season. Doesn’t appear as if he’s in any rush, either side truly, to get an extension done.

Look for this one to get punted towards completion of the season.”

Latest on Erik Karlsson, and the Canucks-Senators gone over Myers-Zaitsev

“Well undoubtedly that exploded today. Mike Grier speaking about it after the GM conferences.

Number one, I don’t think Karlsson at this moment in time has actually been asked to waive for any specific group. I don’t believe that’s there.

Number 2, what I believe the Sharks are truly doing is attempting to figure out with 4 years and $11.5 million per season staying on his offer, what groups want to do for that agreement, which would form any prospective trades.

Mentioned Ottawa. Very not likely they’re able to do Karlsson however I do believe them and Vancouver spoke about a Tyler Myers – Nikita Zaitsev type trade. I don’t believe it ever got to Myers. My friend Rick Dhaliwal reported that he didn’t refuse a trade. I don’t believe it ever got to him. I do believe the 2 groups spoke about it. It would provide Vancouver a little bit of cap relief, Ottawa assistance on defense. I don’t understand where it stands today or if it can be restored however it was at some level gone over.”
