However, a report surfaced on Hockey Night in Canada on Saturday that there’s still a chance Karlsson could move before the Feb. 26 trade deadline.

The defenseman has two years left on his seven-year, $45.5 million deal he signed with the Senators back in 2012. While the Senators still have a bit of time to re-sign the defenseman, Karlsson came out in early December and stated he wants to sign for market value on a team that currently has just $1.34 million in cap space.
Karlsson’s is the NHL’s best defenseman and will no doubt exceed the Chris Jones Authentic Jersey $9 million annual cap hit the highest paid blue liner, P.K. Subban, has. As Kypreos eluded to, there’s talk that Karlsson should be the league’s highest paid player. Right now, the NHL’s biggest contract belongs to Connor McDavid and his $12.5 million annual cap hit for the next eight years.
Ohtani’s either/or decision also keeps the matter of precedent in mind, as his treatment could also apply to future such examples of two-way players. For example, Madison Bumgarner is a commonly cited pitcher with decent hitting skills, and his San Francisco Giants did forfeit their DH in order to allow him to hit for himself in an American League game against the Oakland Athletics on June 30, 2016.
In the event that Bumgarner receives future appearances in the field, most likely at DH, he’d have the opportunity to earn hitter/pitcher eligibility, as Ohtani has, with 10 games there in-season. ESPN also has the discretion to award additional such eligibility to players with an appropriate amount of such appearances, such as a large number of pinch-hitting appearances, a pitcher batting for himself in an AL game or a pitcher shifting into a field position for a portion of a game as a strategic matter.
The 2018 NFL offseason will bring some painful cuts for veteran players 锟斤拷 and in some cases, it already has. But it also means opportunities for young, perhaps misused, prospects to find new homes. A change of venue can unlock the value of an overlooked athlete and turn potential draft busts into valuable contributors.
