NHL Rumors: 3 Teams Expected to Target Damon Severson This Offseason

Damon Severson is one of the top pending free-agent defensemen set to hit the market, and there are going to be several teams looking to sign him because of it. As a result, let's discuss three teams who are expected to target him.

Vancouver Canucks: If the Vancouver Canucks are able to move out some salary (which they are planning to), we should expect them to make a major push for Severson. After all, the right side of their defensive group needs serious help, and Severson would provide them with just that. 

Ottawa Senators: The Ottawa Senators are heading in the right direction, but a major need they have is a top-four right-shot defenseman. Due to this, we should expect them to be a part of the Severson sweepstakes this summer. He would be in the running to play top-pairing minutes on their current roster. 

Buffalo Sabres: The Buffalo Sabres should compete for a playoff spot next season, but if they want to help their chances, they will need to improve the right side of their defensive group. Severson would be a perfect addition for them, as they would finally have a legitimate right-shot top-four defenseman on their roster.
