Ryan Rishaug: “Darren Dreger certainly raised some eyebrows there with Erik Karlsson chatter and the Edmonton Oilers.”

Pierre LeBrun: “It’s not going to be a trade where the Sharks net a whole lot in return, believe it or not. It’s really is about moving the contract … multi-years left at $11.5 million. Obviously, the Sharks would have to eat out of that. ”

  • David Staples of the Edmonton Journal: Mark Spector on Oilers Now with Bob Stauffer on the Oilers hypothesis about Erik Karlsson: “I think it’s a 100% guarantee the Oilers aren’t going to trade for Erik Karlsson. That is not going to happen in anyone’s world. Let’s get that on the record. Not happening.”

Ryan Rishaug: “Jakob Chychrun, price continues to be high.”

Pierre LeBrun: “You’re getting a top-four defenseman at that cap hit and he’s signed for a couple more years. He’s not a rental. So Arizona feels that’s why they want two first-round picks.”

Ryan Rishaug: “Do we get into specific teams yet on the Boeser conversation? Do we know?”

Pierre LeBrun: “Teams are interested in him. They don’t like his AAV, $6.65 million for the next two and half years … If and when the Canucks trade Brock Boeser, it has to be a deal that helps unclog their salary cap picture, which is not very good.”

Ryan Rishaug: “Just based on being without MacKinnon here for a little, and  underwhelming results for the Stanley Cup champs so far.”

Pierre LeBrun: “I think Colorado is intent on being aggressive, and that’s notwithstanding all the injuries they’ve had. I think they had that intention even before the puck even dropped this year because they lost Nazem Kadri and never replaced him.”
