Ottawa Senators Rumors: 3 Potential Landing Spots for Motte

The Ottawa Senators have made it known that they are moving Tyler Motte, as he is the latest player to be scratched due to trade-related reasons. As a result, let's look at three teams who could look to bring in the bottom-six forward. 

New York Rangers: The New York Rangers certainly stand out as a possible landing spot for Motte. He worked well as a deadline addition last season, so perhaps that could lead the Blueshirts to target him again. This is especially worth considering when noting that he would serve as an upgrade over Jake Leschyshyn at 4C.

Tampa Bay Lightning: The Lightning are never shy to add bottom-six forwards at the deadline, and Motte seems like a player they could target to continue this trend. They could use another bottom-six forward who can kill penalties, and he could fit anywhere in their lineup due to his ability to play all three forward positions. 

Seattle Kraken: The Seattle Kraken are aiming to make the postseason for the first time in their history and are another team that could use some help on their fourth line. As a result, don't be surprised to see Seattle make a big push for him.
