Calgary - Toronto


G Henrik Karlsson


5th round pick (2013)

Low risk, high reward. Karlsson can compete for the 1b spot in Toronto, while at the same time creating a healthy competition with Ben Scrivens. Flames get a 5th round pick.

Best of all, Karlsson keeps his nickname - The Tower. Just have to change it from 'CT' to 'CN'.

To be honest, with all of the prospects we have in goal, Karlsson isn't really needed. BUT....at that price, i'll buy.

How many of those prospects can backup though? Karlsson is NHL-ready, and it doesn't cost you anything.

Irving will likely backup Kipper next season.

Ben Scrivens played some games in the NHL last season as well as being HUGE in the Marlies Calder run. (made the finals) He's more than ready for a backup role and may challenge Reimer for the starting spot.

The price is fair, I just don't think it's well executed asset management to deal for a goalie of Karlsson's calibre because the Leafs have plenty of goalies they're currently developing. We're looking for someone who's proven or noone at all

Was shocked to see you weren't a Leaf fan with a post like that. A 5th round pick is completely useless. Keep Karlsson and devlop him because Kipper won't be around much longer, or at least get something for him.

I wasn't shocked to see this user's post be completely asinine.

You clearly don't have much to contribute, as have noted from another thread. Enjoy the block list

Thing is Karlsson has proven nothing in his limited stint with the Flames. He's worth no more than a 5th. And Irving and Ramo are better short-term prospects, with a clutch of other goalies, led by Brossoit, better long-term prospects.

There's really no room in Calgary for Karlsson.

That said, Karlsson doesn't really do a whole lot for the Leafs.

We already have Irving pushing for an NHL job, plus Ramo coming over from the KHL next year. Not to mention prospects like Brossoit, Gillies, and Ortio in the system.

Our goaltending (short-term and long-term) is set, even after Kipper retires.

No real need but I would do it cause of the low cost. We have plenty of depth in goal. I'd rather keep Scrivens for back-up duties, he's earned it.

Karlsson's new nickname "The CN Tower".

Flames do this because Irving has stole the backup spot from Henrik.

To give Karlsson a chance to salvage his NHL career. If he fails to earn a backup job this year, he's likely headed back to Europe.

Keep in mind San Jose thought they didn't need Kipper either, hence how you got him for cheap. Wrongly or not Calgary obviously believes they can compete this year, so I think if you're "giving" Karlsson away I'd give him away for someone who can play on your roster and give you some depth come playoff time.

I don't think they owe him that at this point. Keep him and get him to compete for the back up against Irving. The cream always rises right?
God forbid if there is an injury than they could always call him up. If he doesn't clear waivers than you are basically getting what you are getting for him right now. I look at when Burke was trying to trade Bryz because he owed it to him. Got nothing for him so on wiavers he went.
If he can't hack it in Calgary I doubt he will be able to in media made TO

Hence the 5th round pick!

Agree about injuries though. After Irving, I'm not sure we have any other NHL-ready goalies.

5th rounders don't usually pan out. So you would be loosing a contract spot for a different player.
