Senators Rumors: 2 Potential Landing Spots for Shane Pinto

According to NHL insider Elliotte Friedman, the gap between the Ottawa Senators and Shane Pinto has widened. With the regular season rapidly approaching, one has to wonder if the Senators will move Pinto. Let's discuss two teams who could make sense as possible landing spots for him if officially shopped. 

Boston Bruins: The Boston Bruins desperately need to improve down the middle. They failed to bring in replacements for Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci this offseason. They also were connected to Pinto this offseason. Perhaps this latest development between the Sens and Pinto could lead to Boston calling. 

Philadelphia Flyers: The Philadelphia Flyers expressed a clear interest in Pinto, and he would be an outstanding fit for the club. He is still quite young enough that he would be a great asset to their rebuild. With that, their center depth is not strong, and bringing in a player like Pinto would certainly improve it. 

We will need to wait and see if the Bruins and Flyers make a bigger push to land Pinto from here.
