Erik Karlsson traded to the San Jose Sharks

  • Forward Chris Tierney is one of the players coming to Ottawa in return for Erik Karlsson

If San Jose re-signs Karlsson, Ottawa receives a conditional 2021 second-round selection - or a first-round pick (not lottery protected) if the Sharks reach the Stanley Cup final in 2019. "I wish we were standing here during different circumstances. Its an unfortunate part of the business".

"It's very unfortunate that I'm going to have to move on professionally", Karlsson said.

"I was prepared to come here and work hard for this team". "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". "I still have a year on my deal and, unfortunately, I couldn't follow through".

British security services had named the men as Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov , but said these were likely to be aliases. Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov do not deny the British claims that they travelled from London to Salisbury twice.

Ottawa also gets a second-round pick in 2021 if Karlsson re-signs with the Sharks.

In the end, the defenceman and the Senators did not see eye to eye - with the deal being done on the eve of the first on-ice session at training camp. Karlsson said the deal still came as a shock but he is eager to begin work on a team that made the Stanley Cup Final in 2016 and lost to Vegas in the second round previous year. But Wilson stayed in touch with the Senators, and said the teams reached a deal because Ottawa was looking to get something done quickly. The 6-foot-1 DeMelo is next in line, with 20 assists in 63 games a year ago while averaging 14:12 per game, and has three goals and 32 points in 133 career games with the Sharks. "It's always going to be my home and it's always going to be a community that I'm going to be as much involved in as I possibly can and give back in whatever way that I can". It's been happening really fast.

Karlsson is a free agent after the season, but Ottawa continues to stick to their guns, refusing to deal the best defenseman on the market for anything less than their initial demands. "Even though there's been a lot of noise for nearly a year now, I never thought in my wildest imagination I was going to leave this place". Karlsson joins one of the top defensive groups in the league alongside 2017 Norris Trophy victor Brent Burns and shutdown defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic.

Canada trade deal 'eminently possible,' Freeland says
She said she spoke with Lighthizer over the weekend and they agreed it would be useful for them to meet again face to face. Under U.S. trade negotiating laws, a text for that agreement is due by October 1.

The Ottawa Senators promised they were going into rebuild mode earlier this week.

Karlsson would be a huge addition to the Sharks blue line, especially as they look to build around the likes of Evander Kane and Brent Burns.

Though there had been talk about Karlsson's departure since the trade deadline last February, this will still come as a shock.

The Frenchman's future at Old Trafford has been called into question given his fractious relationship with boss Jose Mourinho . They have to protect their asset but privately they might be doing a deal because they want to get their £90m back.

This is also great news for the Boston Bruins, though, beyond the obvious of essentially picking up a projected 2018-19 season sweep against an Ottawa team they outscored 18-to-5 in a four-game season series sweep a year ago.
