The Ottawa Senators, much like the Buffalo Sabres and Detroit Red Wings have a terrible NHL roster. God, this division is so bad. It makes it kind of difficult to find a trade that makes sense, when the team with two top five picks in the draft has like, zero good veterans they want to trade away.
The Senators only have three forwards currently signed for next season. They aren’t going to move Colin White or Brady Tkachuk and on one wants Artem Anisimov. The Senators, like the Red Wings have some great prospects, but they aren’t going to move any of those guys right now.
They do have a couple of interesting restricted free agents. Connor Brown is one who jumps out. He is a scrappy right winger who put up decent offensive numbers when given a bigger role in Ottawa. He had 16 goals and 43 points in 71 games this season. He scored 20 as a rookie with the Toronto Maple Leafs in 2016-17 but saw his role reduced when William Nylander and Mitch Marner showed up.
He could fit well on a second or third line in Calgary. His value wouldn’t be incredibly high as he is a 26 year old RFA. Maybe a decent prospect and a mid round pick is enough since the Senators are hoarding picks and prospects and crave more.
