Erik Karlsson 8 yr deal

Recommended Posts

WOW, Erik Karlsson just signed a huge 8 yr/$92 million contract with the Sharks. That's $11.5 million per year. I think that makes him the third highest player now. Connor McDavid is still the highest at 8 yr/ $100 million per year ($12.5 million per year).

 

That's a lot of a defenseman!

Conner McJesus is the highest paid player. I think Matthews is slightly higher or the same as EK.

 

He is the highest paid defenseman.

 

I’m having a hard time seeing a 34 year-old Karlsson being worth anywhere near that, let alone a 37 year-old Karlsson.

 

It’s a Cup or bust for SJ, and they better do it in the next few years or Doug Wilson will likely be looking for work.

 

They still want/need to sign Thornton, Pavelski, Meier, and LeBlanc iirc.

 

This likely means Donskoi and Nyquist are gone at the least.

I’d be all over Nyqvist!

Nyquist and Zuccarello are kind of on my wish list because I think they are more reasonable options.

 

I think Zucc will stay with Dallas though, it seemed like a good fit.

 

Analysts are saying Nyquist will get overpaid (during free agency? Really going out on a limb there), which likely leaves us out.
