Dater’s Daily: Erik Karlsson Trade Chatter; How Has Vegas Gotten Good Again?

Published

Erik Karlsson

Greetings from a very snowy Thornton. My son better be doing some shoveling today, is all I can say. I used to ski a lot – well, I worked at a ski resort (Stratton Mountain) in Vermont one winter and really skied a lot with my free pass as an employee. But skiing generally isn’t recommended for men in their 50s with chronic low-back pain, so here I sit, surrounded by snow and not able to enjoy any of it. Let’s do some NHL links, notes and whatnot, with some trade rumors involving Erik Karlsson.

Superstreak Bonus!
  • Sharks GM Mike Grier said he is listening to offers for Erik Karlsson, and other reports say the Sharks and Karlsson’s former team, Ottawa, are talking about a return swap (San Jose Hockey Now).
  • The problem could be Karlsson’s enormous cap hit ($11.5 million, with four years still left on his deal).
  • Vegas GM Kelly McCrimmon on why the Golden Knights are out to such a fast start (Vegas Hockey Now)
  • Somehow, I binged on the HBO Max series “Wahl Street”, about Mark Wahlberg. While he seems like a nice guy, I came away with the feeling that what he’s most interested in is making his next fast buck, whether it’s jumping into the gym apparel industry, the tequila business or other assorted get-rich-quicker schemes.

I haven’t seen Mark Wahlberg’s series, but he is worth some $400M and is a great actor, so I don’t see him as chasing get rich quick schemes as he is already filthy rich. I think he helped his brother with the hamburger business; helping family find success is not a bad thing, no?
Most uber wealthy Hollywood types hire the best lawyers and accountants to skillfully avoid the taxes the average working stiff has to pay.

Perhaps they should be called “stay-rich” schemes…
