Five years, 7.5.


What was the point of stating this in a karlsson thread?


On topic:

I wouldn't be against them locking him up long term. This guy is a franchise player and is reaching the status of a true elite player (up there with stamkos, malkin ect...).

Salary has moved up since then, same deal would be about $1m/y more. $6.5m long term is a still a nice move.

3 years 18 million is good for me. RFA afterwards, we maintain his rights, and we get to see if he can keep up his production. If he can, he likely gets another 5-6 year extensino at roughly the same money...

Murray isn't stupid, he knows there might be changes like a max cap hit for RFA's in the next CBA....

Well this off-season will mark three seasons in the NHL and he was playing professional hockey in Sweden before then so he's not that far off...

Hard to say what he will get, given the crazy season he's had so far. What he should get is something like a 2 year deal at 3-4 million AAV.

I hope Ottawa gives him a 3 year deal. Keep his RFA status, get through the next CBA(although given my lack of information that may happen before he signs) and then hit him with a solid 6-8 year deal.

As for the money, I'd think something in the ballpark of what Myers got is reasonable.

I'll say 3 years, 6.5M per.
Reallly hoping for this, term would be perfect, after give him a contract to finish his carreer as a Senator.

He would have gotten at least that based on last years stats, and he is statically better this season.

5.5 Mil per upto his second to last or last offseason as an RFA. Then he gets a Doughty or Keith type deal.

he might as well get paid, him and spezza are the reason that team is even good. So why not get compensated for it? the two of them have a substantial amount of points more then the rest of the team make Murray pay. Murray does not really have any bargaining power either. Karlsson's stats speaks volumes.

I would not be surprised to see Karlsson get a 3 year 7.5 mil per contract. You never know what will happen (Crosby), so get paid while you can in my opinion. You take discounts when you have secured your financial situation, not just entering your first real contract.

If he was a consistent elite-level performer, then sure. I just don't think one year should make a contract. Once his second contract is complete, then his true value can be better ascertained.

Wait what? Spezza was born in Toronto so he probably still has family there but he lives in Ottawa:

Sens wouldn't match, Karlsson's agent would have hung up laughing and there would be nothing to match.

If he's going to milk the offsheets for money he'd want more than that

To ensure this wasn't a fluke season. Karlsson looks like the second coming of Lidstrom in the making right now but that level of brilliance is a gamble. Look at the fall of Ovechkin. If he does not recover, then Washington is paying nine million on the cap for a guy unable to outpace Lupul. Why take the risk when they don't have to?

I think its hilarious that an Isles fan thinks that :

a) Karlsson would sign an offer sheet of 3 yrs/20 million
b) That we wouldn't match that in about half a nanosecond

That kind of an offer sheet I don't think even gives us teh 2 firsts, a second and a third compensation. Realistically, EK is not signing an offer sheet, but even if he did, the only way he does is if its something so stupidly high that he would be an idiot not to sign it. And in that case, it would be 4 first rounders for compensation, and we could still match if we want to, with all the cap room we have.
