Erik Karlsson seems shook after trade to Sharks

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The Senators finally got a deal done on the eve of training camp. It's a very emotional and sad day for me and my family.

If the Senators decided to make this move now, that means contract talks they were having with Karlsson's camp were going nowhere and he had no plans to re-sign here. It becomes a first if the Sharks sign him and SJ makes it to the final this season. "For the benefit of the organization, for the benefit of the rebuild, for the succession of the rebuild, I think today we made the proper decision". "As you said, there's been a lot of noise for nearly a year now, but I never in my wildest imagination thought that I was going to leave this place".

Karlsson rumors are indeed intensifying, however talking to people I get the sense that most of the people/chatter implying this is "really close to happening" is being driven once again by Ottawa's desire to force the hand of some of the teams with which they have discussed Karlsson. Karlsson now has one year left on an expiring contract that will pay him $7.5 million next season but has a cap hit of $6.5 million. "I wish we were standing here during different circumstances. I never wanted to leave this place, but at the same time I respect their decision".

Karlsson is a two-time Norris Trophy victor and led or tied the Senators in scoring the past five years.

The six-foot, 191-pound Swede was selected by the Senators with the 15th overall pick in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. He also led the team in average ice time (26:44, 3rd in the NHL), was second in blocked shots (120) and takeaways (55) and second in scoring with 62 points (nine goals, 53 assists).

"I'm heartbroken", said Matt Melbourne, a self-described "huge Sens fan" who happened to be wearing a red Senators T-shirt when someone told him about the trade. "I've still got to wrap my around what's going on". The 24-year-old Tierney played the biggest role for San Jose of any of the players traded to Ottawa, spending much of the year as a third-line center.
