Ottawa Senators Rumors: 2 Potential Landing Spots for Mathieu Joseph

The Ottawa Senators need to clear out some cap space before the start of the season. Due to this, Mathieu Joseph and his $2.95 million cap hit have been in the rumor mill. After a disappointing season, a change of scenery may do him so justice. Let's discuss two teams who could consider bringing him in.

Anaheim Ducks: The Anaheim Ducks have a ton of cap space to work with, and they could look to bring in more players before the start of the season because of it. Joseph would be a nice addition to their third line, and this is especially so if he bounces back this upcoming season. With that, they would likely be interested if they land a sweetener for taking on his expensive deal. 

San Jose Sharks: The San Jose Sharks also stand out as a possible landing spot for Joseph. They were in on the Vladimir Tarasenko sweepstakes, so it is clear that they would like to add another winger before the start of the year. They are also rebuilding like the Ducks and would likely be willing to bring in Joseph in if it also lands them a pick or prospect for doing Ottawa the favor. 

We will need to wait and see if either of these two teams can successfully acquire Joseph before the start of the year from here.
