Ottawa Senators Rumors: 2 Potential Landing Spots for Shane Pinto

Contract negotiations between Shane Pinto and the Ottawa Senators are not doing too hot. Due to this, Pinto’s name has been generating buzz in the rumor mill. Let’s discuss two clubs that could be serious suitors for him if he’s officially made available. 

Boston Bruins: The Boston Bruins are connected to Pinto, and it’s simple to see why. They desperately need centers with Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci retiring. With Pinto having a lot of potential and coming off a good rookie season, he stands out as a prime trade target for the B’s.

Minnesota Wild: The Minnesota Wild are another team looking for help down the middle. Pinto would be an immediate fit in their top six if acquired and could take another step forward because of it. The Wild need to boost their forward if they hope to be a real threat in the Western Conference this season, so don’t be surprised if they enter the Pinto sweepstakes.
