Only seen Karlsson a few times this year but he's been mediocre. That playoff run was dominant. Could be a combination of post heel surgery difficulties and being on a club way past playing any meaningful games. Why push yourself right?

Karlsson's injury is from what I've read, a difficult one to come back from. It's entirely possible he'll never be the player he once was.

On the other hand, maybe he's physically fine but tired of playing for a team that's going nowhere. Not the most professional approach, but hey, we're only human.

It's a risk for any team trading for him. Might pay off huge. Or not.

Is Karlsson the same player he once was?  Wonder if those injuries are catching up to him or if it's just a bad year and he'll bounce back next season?  Imagine a team gives him a monster contract as a UFA and the Karlsson of this season is what you get for 7 years.

Not having a proper training camp and being on a team that's been a mess all season is definitely not helping him. You can still see flashes of the player he was as recently as last season, so, I'm confident in saying it's still there. He'll be his typical self next season. I mean, even with the rough year he's having, he's on pace for what would be a 60 point 82 game season, and has the best possession numbers on the Senators.

He's also spent most of this season dragging around the corpse of Johnny Oduya.

I heard Methot was yuge for him during the drive last year and they lost him.
