Karlsson v. Hoffman

Recommended Posts

Such a PR nightmare, they needed to act quickly. Wasn't sure they would find a willing trade partner, but the Sharks aren't afraid to take risks on controversial personalities and you can't really lose that trade no matter what happens with Hoffman.

It's a tough call. Though the Sens have pretty good odds of being terrible again next season, the lottery gives them zero guarantee of a better spot than #4.  I don't know how good next year's crop is looking beyond Hughes, but it's hard to pass up on this year's pick and essentially gamble against yourself. Not the best message to send to the players / fans either.

That is what I saw as well.

Ottawa news reporting that Dorion is going to meet with Karlsson now. Guessing he'll propose his July 1 offer and see if there's a chance he stays. if not, he'll be moving this weekend and the 4th overall will go to Avs.

The Panthers will also get a 2018 seventh round draft pick with Hoffman in exchange for a 2019 second round draft pick and 2018 fourth and fifth round draft picks.

 

This doesn't look good for Dorion. That second round pick alone would have been a better return for Hoffman.

But they didn't want to trade within the division, I'm sure. That's a little rude of the Sharks' GM...and I love it.

Hoffman's girlfriend better be worth it. I wonder if Florida will trade him before next season starts. If Hoffman plays with Trocheck, it could be a great combination.

No state taxes in Florida. So technically, Hoffman is now making more money.
