NHL: NHL Draft David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Saturday, everyone!

As of writing this, Erik Karlsson is still on the roster of the Ottawa Senators, and a major reason why seems to be the Dallas Stars’ refusal to include Miro Heiskanen as part of a deal to lure him away.

In a span of roughly 72 hours, Heiskanen has gone from the Stars’ top prospect to the player that couldn’t be moved for the NHL’s best defenseman since Nicklas Lidström. Lidström, of course, is the man who made it impossible for Sergei Zubov to win Norris Trophies.
