While Erik Karlsson's future with the Senators is uncertain, he has made roots in Ottawa.
You can debate over how much that would play into the likelihood of Karlsson re-signing with the Senators, but the blueliner has no intention of leaving Ottawa. He recently bought a new place and he does intend to live in the city long-term - just perhaps not during the NHL season. "I live here, and I’m going to live here no matter what," Karlsson said on Saturday. "If not all year round, I’m going to live here in the summer. My wife is from here and this is where we’re set." Karlsson's seven-year, $45.5 million contract is set to expire in the summer of 2019 and he's expected to seek a massive payday with his next contract. Feb 18 - 9:10 AM
