In return, the Senators will get a first-round pick in 2019 or 2020, centre Chris Tierney, a second-round pick in 2019 (the best of the two San Jose now has), prospect centre Josh Morris, prospect Rudolfs Balcers, and defenceman Dylan DeMelo. That pick becomes a first if the Sharks make the Stanley Cup Final in 2019.

"This is the right moment for us to rebuild our team", said Senators general manager Pierre Dorion. Karlsson's current contract expires at the end of the season.

I get a sense that if San Jose doesn't happen soon, the time of lowering the asking price will be upon us. this could be happening at any point today or over the next few days.so stay tuned.

"I'm heartbroken", said Matt Melbourne, a self-described "huge Sens fan" who happened to be wearing a red Senators T-shirt when someone told him about the trade. "And even though you have heard a lot of things about this could be possible, I think that you can't really prepare for it, for any of it, so, it's sad". Wearing shorts and flip-flops all year round doesn't sound like a bad way to live if you ask me. The 24-year-old Tierney played the biggest role for San Jose of any of the players traded to Ottawa, spending much of the year as a third-line center.

The comparisons to Alfredsson's departure for the Detroit Red Wings as an unrestricted free agent in July 2013 are inevitable because Karlsson has roots in the community. "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". "I've still got to wrap my around what's going on".


Twitter, of course, was blown away by a trade that'll certainly be talked about for years to come.

Karlsson had spent his entire career with the Senators since being drafted by the organization in 2008, 15th overall.

The Senators have said they are entering a rebuilding period and are planning to go with a young roster this season.

Karlsson is a two-time Norris Trophy victor and led or tied the Senators in scoring the past five years.
