The Karlsson Solution

Listen to “The Instigator – Episode 6 – The Karlsson Solution” on Spreaker.

Ottawa Senators star defenseman Erik Karlsson future contract requests have put Senators management in a difficult situation. The Senators will not be able to afford him, and it just may be smart to make a move now. As Karlsson draws closer to free agency his value will decrease. Should the Sens move him this year and speed up their rebuild with the huge assets or should they wait it out. I have the solution that will bring the largest return.
