Sabres Daily: Could Karlsson Deal Affect Buffalo?; HNIC Rumors



Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman indicated on his weekly spot on NHL Network that the Carolina Hurricanes are working on a deal to acquire Norris Trophy-winning defenseman Erik Karlsson from the San Jose Sharks and that if they trade for him, they will have a number of contingencies to make the deal possible, including trading winger Teuvo Teravainen and/or defenseman Brett Pesce.

Both longtime Hurricanes are entering the final year of their contracts, and reportedly Carolina has been rebuffed in their attempts of getting Pesce signed to a long-term deal. Friedman said that GM Don Waddell has spoken to other teams about both players. Pesce has been connected in trade rumors to the Nashville Predators, the Toronto Maple Leafs, and the Buffalo Sabres.


Sabres In Case You Missed It


For those in Buffalo, watching CBC Hockey Night In Canada has been the lifeblood of most hockey fans (even though for some reason the local cable does not broadcast games in high-def). Unsubstantiated rumors emerged last week that Sportsnet would be making dramatic changes to their broadcast crew, including longtime host Ron Maclean and former Vancouver Canucks defenseman Kevin Bieksa.

Earlier this week, former Sportsnet host and longtime HNIC producer John Shannon reported that Maclean would be back for another season, and on Tuesday Bieksa went to social media to report that he will be returning.
