Senators Rumors: 2 Possible Trade Destinations for Mathieu Joseph

The Ottawa Senators need to clear up cap space to re-sign Shane Pinto. Mathieu Joseph and his $2.95 million cap hit has entered the rumor mill because of it. The Senators will likely need to attach sweeteners if they hope to move Joseph, so let's discuss two clubs who could be willing to take his contract on now.

Philadelphia Flyers: The Philadelphia Flyers have been connected to Joseph, and it ultimately makes sense. They are rebuilding, and taking on his contract could allow them to land other notable assets. Joseph would also be a decent addition to their bottom six if he can bounce back from his rough 2022-23 season.

Anaheim Ducks: The Anaheim Ducks are also in the middle of a big rebuild, so they could be open to the idea of bringing Joseph. The Ducks could get a decent prospect or draft pick for doing the Sens this favor. With that, Joseph would also improve their depth on the wings, which is something they would welcome right now.
