OFFICIAL: San Jose's Asking Price For Erik Karlsson Revealed
Now, it appears Karlsson is about to hit the trade market as San Jose is nowhere close to a playoff spot, but Karlsson would enjoy some playoff time as he's stated before.
The main concern is his contract, Karlsson will be earning $11.5 million annually until the year 2027-28, just one million dollars less than what Connor McDavid is earning.
NHL insider Frank Seravalli has revealed the asking price for Erik Karlsson, and it's quite interesting.
The San Jose Sharks are asking for 3 first-round picks, and are willing to retain 18% of Erik Karlsson's contract in exchange of a trade
That is quite the asking price, even with 18% retained that is still a contract above $9 million per season that MANY contenders will not even want to think about acquiring. If Karlsson is interested in playoff hockey, he may not be finding it any time soon..
