Erik Karlsson聽may end up going down as聽one of the best defensemen in NHL history. Karlsson is a two time Norris Trophy winner (2012 Kevin Shattenkirk Jersey ,2015) as well as a three-time Viking Award winner annually given to the best Swedish player in hockey. He is a rare breed in the NHL, a defenseman that can score at an almost point per game level. It hasn't led to much team success for the Ottawa Senators. The team made a miracle run to the Eastern Conference Finals last season with an obviously injured Karlsson leading the way.
This is a turning point for the Ottawa Senators. They were expecting to be a cup contender this year and that has definitely not happened thus far. It is clear that the Senators will miss the playoffs this year and have already shaken up their roster. Kyle Turris went to Nashville as part of the Matt Duchene deal. Dion Phaneuf was moved to the Los Angeles Kings for Marian Gaborik. The team is in flux. The team was shopping Erik Karlsson at the deadline, but couldn't reach the deal they wanted, so trading Karlsson will have to wait until the offseason.
If/when they decide to move on from Erik Karlsson you can expect a king's ransom to come back Ottawa's way. Elite scoring defensemen in their prime never hit the trade block. So here we take a look at exactly what Ottawa could expect to get for someone like Karlsson from every team.
If Karlsson gets traded it will shake the foundation of the NHL to its core, so let's take a look at what every team could realistically give up for the sensational Swede Erik Karlsson
EAST RUTHERFORD Kenny Young Jersey , N.J. (AP) — Former New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz has retired.
In making the announcement Tuesday, the 31-year-old Cruz said he plans to join ESPN as an NFL analyst. Cruz will contribute to variety of shows and make his ESPN debut Wednesday.
Cruz was a seven-year NFL veteran and a 2012 Pro Bowl selection. He joined the Giants in 2010 as an undrafted free agent out of Massachusetts. He had his first 1,000-yard season and caught a touchdown pass in the Super Bowl victory over the Patriots in February 2012.
Cruz had 303 catches for 4,549 yards and 25 touchdowns, including an NFL record-tying 99-yard reception in December 2011. He was signed by the Chicago Bears in 2017 but cut before the season.
Giants quarterback Eli Manning said Cruz had a terrific career.
Cruz burst onto the scene when he caught three touchdowns in a preseason game against the New York Jets in 2010. It made for a great story because he grew up in nearby Paterson Mathieu Perreault Jersey , New Jersey, which was within 30 minutes driving distance, depending on the traffic. He made the roster but sat out with injury.
He became a star the following season.
“He had a great feel for the offense, his routes, and he was tough to cover Womens Justin Tucker Jersey ,” Manning said Tuesday after the Giants practiced for Friday’s annual preseason game against the Jets. “He would run down the field, break it in, and we gave him a lot of options. He mastered some of those concepts, and it gave him a great opportunity to get open and make big plays for us.”
Manning said he and Cruz talked in the Giants’ locker room two weeks ago, and he wished him well “going to the dark side.”
Manning laughed when asked if he wanted to prerecord his response to Cruz’s first criticism of his play.
“He’ll be all right Christian Dvorak Jersey , I hope,” Manning said.
