Obviously the Sens can go a couple different directions in these negotiations. They can try to sign Karlsson to a short term deal at a higher cap number to avoid getting locked into a long term deal with the current CBA uncertainty.
Or they can go long term, and lock up the club’s top defender for the foreseeable future. Both approaches have their benefits to the organization and the player.
So it’s time for you to play the role of General Manager. To enter the contest, you must email me the number of years, the total value of the contract and as a tiebreaker, the date the deal is signed on. In the event that multiple people guess the correct number of years and dollars, we’ll go to the date signed as the tie breaker.
- 1) YOUR NAME
- 2) NUMBER OF YEARS
- 3) TOTAL VALUE
- 4) DATE SIGNED
The prize is something a little different this time around and is more in line with the season. The winner will receive two golf passes for The Marshes and will join a foursome with SensChirp and the Wisers Guy (Date and time to be determined). I realize golf may not be everyone’s cup of tea so as an alternative, the winner will have the option of taking a couple 300 lvl tickets to a Sens game next season.
The choice is yours!
Feel free to post your predictions in the comment section afterwards but only those that are emailed in will be considered. The deadline for contest entries is Friday, May 25 at 10:00 AM.
- While the news of Luke Richardson’s hiring dominated the headlines yesterday, there was another significant piece of news provided by Sens Assistant GM Tim Murray. It won’t come as a huge surprise, but according to comments made by Murray and relayed through a tweet by Joy Lindsay, the Senators have submitted their qualifying offers to all of the team’s restricted free agents with the exception of defenceman Craig Schira. That means Karlsson, Foligno, O’Brien, Daugavins, Da Costa, Gryba and Filatov.
- There still haven’t been any official announcements from the organization, but word is Jean Gabriel Pageau has joined Darren Kramer and Jakub Culek as players that have signed their entry level contracts. Pageau split last season between Gatineau and Chicoutimi.
