Senators Rumors: 3 Trade Candidates for 2023-24 Season

The Ottawa Senators are in danger of missing the playoffs yet again this season after a somewhat underwhelming start to the campaign. Due to this, let’s discuss three players who could be moved before the trade deadline.

Dominik Kubalik: Dominik Kubalik is one Senator who we could see dealt before the campaign is done. He is in the final season of his contract and could get some attention as a rental candidate because of it. Teams needing more scoring in their middle six could certainly call Ottawa about him.

Mathieu Joseph: Mathieu Joseph was a big name in the rumor mill this offseason, and that could certainly translate to the deadline. He is having an excellent bounce-back year, and his trade value is higher. Due to this, maybe Ottawa could move him to improve their roster elsewhere. 

Erik Brannstrom: Erik Brannstrom is another Senator who has been in the rumor mill this season. The young defenseman could use a change of scenery, and teams would likely call because of his upside.
