rumor bout the wife came out to have bid go up, any team willing or able to get 1.375 per year up, so 12.375mil a yr can get services of EK. I feel this to be a neg tak :( basically pay more AAV but get shorter yrs but same overal $

I don't think we heard the last of this :/

I wonder where San Jose thinks they are in the team-building arc. Pavelski is 34 and Joe Thornton is approximately 4, 567 years old. Now they lock up Karlsson at huge term for 8 years. Presumably they think they will contend in the first few years of that deal. But this seems, at first blush anyway, to be optimistic about their situation at C. Anyhow, I leave it to better minds than my own to figure out.

Sounds like Pavelski is gone given the cap issues.  It was Pavelski or Karlsson, it was never both.  Not with Karlsson at 11.5 million per. 
 

San Jose's prospect pool is barren. 

 

They have to decide, keep swinging or go into a long painful rebuild

The owner keeps saying he wants to keep Pavelski.

 

Their rebuild will indeed be long and painful. The only question is when it will start.

That's what I thought. And Karlsson's decision to sign seems a tad odd in light of that. He's basically committing to spending the rest of his career on a team that is standing on the precipice, at the very end of its very long run of excellence, and is most likely about to enter the trough of sustained mediocrity. Now maybe he loves San Jose and doesn't make life decisions based on the prospects for team success. But at face value this decision further reinforces a suspicion I've long held, i.e., that NHL players are often surprising unperceptive about the organizations they're signing up for. EK probably sees SJ as perennial contenders who will somehow stay that way forever - much as people used to think about Detroit, before Zetterberg and Datsyuk suddenly but predictably got old, and suddenly Detroit was nothing.

given their cap situation, i don't see how its possible, unless they are trading another big ticket.

I am not sure about that trade as I really like Juulsen and wouldn't want to give him up for maybe 1 year of T J Brodie. Brodie is a good player though.

If the price is to high for Gost, wonder if Lindholm is able to be had?

If the price is too high for Gostisbehere, it'll be even higher for Lindholm.  I suspect he's about as close to untouchable as anyone on Anaheim.

If we can't get either Gostisbehere or Gardiner, I'd really like to try to get Julius Honka from Dallas. I earlier proposed swapping him and Hudon, but in any case he should not be expensive as he doesn't fit in the Stars' system and, as a result, barely got any playing time last season.

 

(No, he's not a top-pair D but if he can fit in our system he could be second pair. Put him on the left if necessary ...)

So he's not planning to pursue any pick swaps. Unless another GM comes calling with a good proposal ...

Love the line about the tweet.  That's hilarious.  I didn't expect Bergevin to do anything. Sometimes the best trades are the ones you don't make.

Lebrun followed up this tweet by saying he believes the Habs have inquired.

Dom Luszczyszyn the Athletic:

 

Projected Contract: $6.8M x 6 years

This is a contract that deeply concerns me. On a six-year deal, Evolving Hockey pegs Duchene to be worth $6.8-million per season, while my model thinks he’s worth $6.7 million. Rumors are swirling that Duchene will command significantly more than that on the open market: north of $9-million per season. It’ll be an extremely tough ask for him to live up to that.

Duchene is not a franchise player, but he will be paid like one. Caveat emptor.

Agree Duchesne is not a franchise player but a very good player.  He is certainly a level above Kevin Hayes who got 7 million.  He will get paid very well.
