The Ottawa Senators are making headlines this offseason with a flurry of significant changes, including a shift in ownership and the departure of star player Alex DeBrincat, who has been traded to Detroit following his refusal to sign a long-term contract with the franchise.


The Search for DeBrincat's Replacement



Travis Konecny appears to be a front-runner in the minds of the Senators' top brass as they search for a replacement. Konecny has been the topic of numerous trade speculations in recent weeks, and he has the skills to potentially step into the void created by DeBrincat's trade.

Last season, Konecny managed to score 31 goals and provide 30 assists in just 60 games.

Trade Conditions are Perfect



Given the Senators' ability to take on Konecny's contract and the fact that he is an Ontario native, the team could prove a fitting destination for him. The potential for reuniting with his former Flyers teammate, Claude Giroux, in the city where he played in the OHL adds to the appeal.

THEORETICAL TRADE:

Ottawa Offers:
Ridly Greig
2024 1st Round Pick
2024 3rd Round Pick

Philadelphia Counters With:
Travis Konecny

In light of the Flyers' ongoing rebuilding process, a possible trade with the Senators is not off the table, despite Konecny's strong fanbase.
