NHL Rumors: Ottawa Senators, and the Toronto Maple Leafs

The Senators a not likely landing area for Erik Karlsson. The Maple Leafs have actually kicked tires on Tyler Myers

Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: It’s uncertain that the Ottawa Senators will re-acquire defenseman Erik Karlsson. San Jose Sharks GM Mike Grier will be wanting to see if there are any fits out there, however it’s not likely the Senators will be among those groups.

Karlsson has a complete no-trade stipulation. A source stated the Sharks have actually connected to a number of groups currently, and it would make good sense if the Senators would be among the groups. Karlsson does still reside in Ottawa in the offseason. He has actually 5 years left on his agreement at an $11.5 million cap hit. Hard to see the Senators having the ability to fit that in now and in the future.

Other defensemen that might be readily available consist of John Klingberg (ANA), Carson Soucy (SEA), Matt Roy (LA), Dmitry Orlov (WSH), Nick Jensen (WSH) and Jakob Chychrun (ARI).

The Toronto Maple Leafs are thought to be amongst the groups kicking tires on Vancouver Canucks defenseman Tyler Myers.
