Who care's, They're not on his acceptable trade list. So it doesn't matter he wont waive to go there.

Idk he's teaming up with a young core in Landeskog, Mackinnon and Rantenan and Mackinnon is looking like a beast this year. Central is wide open and more competitive than the Atlantic. Avs still have 1st rounder this year as well (2018), Avs have a strong hockey market and history. He can change his no trade list.

Sorry but I don't consider that a fleecing of the Senators. I'd say the Avs are getting fleeced in that trade. One player, elite or not, does not make a team (as evinced by Ottawa's current situation), and you are giving up a young D who could be elite in the future, a young centre who could be elite in the future, two picks that could lead to at least decent if not very good players and elite if you're lucky, a very good attacking D (though admittedly with defensive frailties) and a bottom 6 winger. Some people seem to be getting a bit carried away with the success the Avs are having, a bit like the first Roy season. FULL REBUILD does not equal giving up 3x first round picks, a very decent 2nd round prospect who probably should have gone 1st round, a decent attacking D and another young player for a single player you're going to massively overpay. Crazy! rolling eyes

Even worse you're proposing that if Karlsson doesn't re-sign with the Avs they get a single first pick back, so effectively a rental with a 1st for three 1sts, a very good second, a decent attacking D and another young player. No way I'd touch that deal with a 20 ft barge pole!
