I've seen other suggest that this might legitimately be scaring off teams, especially those who are hoping to acquire him and re-sign him to a mega-deal. But for a team like Tampa who is more interested in the next two playoffs runs it would be less of an issue.

I'll preface this with I know it's almost 100% certain that the Sens would never move him here, but for talking's sake, what kind of package do you think the Leafs would need to put together?

1st 2018, 2nd 2018, 2nd 2019, Dermott, Rasanen, Brooks, Rosen, Leivo (Gives Ottawa a top 4 dman and middle six forward now and some young depth pieces with some potential growth left, as well as three picks in the top 60.)

Probably not enough marquee names there aside from the 1st and Dermott, maybe add another 1st?

What are your suggestions?

I said this elsewhere but I genuinely think the Leafs would have to put together a package that included 2 of Nylander, Marner and Liljegren.

You might be right, I'd slap Pierre Dorion in the mouth if he ever suggested something like that though.

Is this because of the Melynk-won't-trade-to-Toronto angle, or do you think that's roughly what Ottawa can expect in a trade? Because I'd be pretty surprised if they get a Nylander/Marner-level player back from wherever he ends up.

More the former but I think it's more that if Karlsson does get moved he's going to get moved for assets(picks and prospects/young players) that are better than what the Leafs have that aren't those three guys. I'd be very surprised if Karlsson got dealt for a package where the primary pieces were a 1st(or even 2 firsts) that figured to be in the 20's and a prospect like Liljegren.

If Karlsson doesn't jokingly skate off the ice during practice 3 or 4 times I'm going to be so disappointed.

Karlsson's last home game of the season. I'm sure that means nothing.

TLDR: The sens gave out $10 McDonald's gift cards to some fans yesterday as part of their Fan Appreciation Night but they forgot to activate them so they're just pieces of plastic.

Wait, does that mean the team already spent money to buy the cards...

What scorcery is this?

If you’re into numerology you’ll certainly appreciate the connections between the Ottawa Senators and the number 65.

The Senators are currently sitting with 65 points in the Atlantic Division.

Their goal differential just happens to be -65.

When the players looked up at the scoreboard at the end of Monday night’s final home game at Canadian Tire Centre against the Winnipeg Jets, it only stood to reason that they would see a 6-5 final.

And in perhaps the strangest coincidence of all, Monday’s game marked exactly 65 weeks – to the day – until Erik Karlsson hits free agency on July 1, 2019.

Not on team plane that's heading out on a 3 game road trip.
