Sharks GM sees Karlsson in San Jose's long-term plans
Ottawa Senators defenceman Erik Karlsson has been traded to the San Jose Sharks

The team struggled last season and many supporters on the streets of downtown Ottawa on Thursday said it was a clear sign that a rebuild is necessary - which means it was also time for a high-priced player like Karlsson to move on.
The decision to deal Karlsson isn't going over well in Ottawa - not only was he the club's best player, he was also one of the most popular to ever pull on the jersey, second only to Alfredsson. Ottawa was going to be bad with or without Karlsson, but the Caps' biggest competition in the East appears to be the Lightning, a team that was favored to beat Washington in the conference final last season but fell in seven games.
Oh, and the Bruins absolutely do not have to worry about Karlsson torching them in April again if the Senators somehow repeated their straight-up freaky trend of having one awful year (last year) followed by a playoff-caliber year. 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, and shape our future with a faster, younger and more competitive team on the ice", Senators general manager Pierre Dorion said. "We are going to build a culture of consistency which will allow this team to sustain better performance over the long term". Over the years, Wilson has acquired players like Thornton, Burns, Kane and Dan Boyle in trades and signed all of them to long-term deals.
Coincidentally, Hoffman and Karlsson have an alleged connection that may have a played a role in their trades. He won the Norris as the league's best defenseman in 2012 and '15 and is one of the best quarterbacks on the power play in the league. In 627 career regular season games over nine seasons with Ottawa, he has tallied 126 goals and 518 points.
If the Sharks end up flipping Karlsson back to an Eastern Conference team like they did with Mike Hoffman, they'll also have to send a first-round pick to Ottawa no later than 2022. We talked about that when I said that (in June), it was about the whole room being broken and we didn't want to point fingers at one person. "I don't think I ever in my wildest imagination I ever thought that I would leave this place but unfortunately we're here under these circumstances".
The Sharks made the addition without giving up a top-six forward or top-four defenseman. DeMelo, 25, has recorded three goals in 133 National Hockey League games.
Perron was a seventh-round pick in 2014 and spent the past two seasons in the AHL.
