Senators Rumors: Ottawa To Bring In Veteran Players This Offseason

Following another disappointing season, the Ottawa Senators are gearing up for significant changes in the upcoming offseason.

General Manager Steve Staios is determined to bolster the team's roster by bringing in experienced veterans to provide leadership and guidance to the young core, according to Bruce Garrioch.

Despite a quiet trade deadline, where no major moves were made, Staios has been actively engaged in discussions with other teams, laying the groundwork for potential offseason acquisitions.

Reports suggest that Staios has been in talks with several teams, aiming to address the Senators' needs and solidify their position as playoff contenders in the years to come.

With key players like Brady Tkachuk, Tim Stutzle, and Jake Sanderson considered untouchable, Staios will likely be active in free agency this summer or may need to consider parting ways with other core players to secure the veteran talent the team requires.

The Senators have not made the playoffs since the 2017 season, and just twice over the past 10 years.

Core players such as Brady Tkachuk, Thomas Chabot, Jake Sanderson, and Tim Stutzle all have yet to play in the postseason in their NHL careers.
