As far as Erik Karlsson's contract situation goes, he's not looking beyond the 2018-19 campaign yet.
San Jose recently acquired Karlsson, who has a season left on his contract, from the Ottawa Senators. While the Sharks likely hope to turn this into more than a rental, it's not surprising that Karlsson wants some time to settle in before making any decisions about his future. This could be a very special season for Karlsson and the Sharks though. San Jose looked like a strong team before the trade and now they arguably have the two best offensive defensemen in the league in Karlsson and Brent Burns. "I see this as an extremely motivating challenge to grow as a player and as a person," Karlsson said. "I think, from everything so far, I’m going to have a great opportunity to do that here."
