It sounds like Erik Karlsson is pretty happy with the acquisition of Johnny Oduya.

Both players are from Sweden, so there's some familiarity between the two of them. There's been speculation that they could be paired together this season, but it's still a little early to say that that's a given. "The coach decides who plays with who, and we've said that since I've been GM here," said Senators general manager Pierre Dorion. "He has carte blanche to play whoever he wants with whoever he wants. But at the same time, I think without divulging any secrets here, Erik is very happy about us signing [Oduya]. He knows that it helps our brand and our culture. We're bringing in someone who's a true pro, and you can never know if guys can play with each other until they are paired together in the NHL."
