    Default Karlsson trade imminent?

    Apparently, the giant poster of Karlsson has been removed from the outside of the CTC. Does this mean a trade is imminent?

    Rumour has it that the new poster that will replace Karlsson is the new face of the franchise: Eugene Melnyk.

    Dorion is trying to squeeze as much out of a trade here, that's probably why the delay!!

    Mark Stone should start being shopped aswell!!

    This happens every year in hockey starved markets.

    A banner or a poster is removed and everyone looks for smoke signals.

    In reality it's the off season and arenas are redressing for the different events that are coming through.

    Also, the marketing teams will create new banners for next season that will get replaced.

    ......but to just play along because it's the off season, it's definitely cause Karlsson has been traded and he requested the giant banner of himself

    I think teams like to rotate players on banners.... that said, there's been smoke signals (looks like a forrest fire) on a Karlsson trade for several weeks.

    I don't think the two are tightly interlocked... but if EK moves today, it'll give everyone something to chat about and criticize Dorion's return.

    No. A trade could be imminent but the two would not be related.

    imminent
    adjective uk ​ /ˈɪm.ɪ.nənt/ us ​ /ˈɪm.ə.nənt/


    Coming or likely to happen very soon:

    imminent disaster/danger
    A strike is imminent.

    More examples:
    For a man in imminent danger of being traded, Erik Karlsson appeared quite unruffled.
    His remarks were intended to scotch rumours of an imminent trade to Tampa.
    He announced the imminent arrival of a messianic leader.
    He gave a dire warning that an earthquake was imminent.
    He warned that an enemy missile attack was imminent.

    You'd have to think he wants to win. That's not a match.

    @DarrenDreger
    Clinging to remaining holidays, however, sources confirm teams with interest in Erik Karlsson have stepped up of late and talks are moving.

    @DarrenDreger
    Teams were hoping to keep it under the radar, however The Beard, @FriedgeHNIC spoiled the surprise.
