With Max Pacioretty being traded to the Vegas Golden Knights on Monday, next up seems to be Erik Karlsson on the move. 

Karlsson like Pacioretty has been attached to trade rumors going back to last season and like Pacioretty has one year left on his contract. 

Vegas was labelled as the front runner for Karlsson, however that might have changed with the Pacioretty trade considering they signed him to a four year extension. 

According to Shawn Simpson of TSN the main road block when it comes to a Karlsson trade is the fact the Sens want Bobby Ryan included going the other way. 

Ryan has four years left on his deal with a $7.5million cap hit, many believe at this point it might take the Sens to retain 50% of Ryan's contract!

Do you think the Sens will be able to find a team willing to take on both Karlsson and Ryan's contracts?
