The Ottawa Senators have had a busy off-season thus far, and on the eve of the 2023-24 season, with which they've got high expectations, major trade rumours continue to persist.

A blockbuster coming?

For weeks now, the rumours surrounding Shane Pinto and the Philadelphia Flyers have continued, and in recent times, the rumours have managed to get much spicier.

Given that the Senators have just over $100,000 in salary cap space, it makes sense for them to make a move ahead of the season, but now, it appears the Flyers are looking to land a prized asset in the deal.

A former top pick



According to a report from The Fourth Period, a hypothetical trade could now include Tyler Boucher, a former top-10 pick of the Senators, as they look to get more value out of a potential trade between the two teams.

The Philadelphia Flyers have spoken with the Senators about Joseph and are believed to be one of the teams asking for a high-priced asset to accommodate a trade. Multiple sources have told TFP's David Pagnotta the Flyers are interested in forward Tyler Boucher, whom the Senators drafted 10th overall in 2021, but Ottawa has been reluctant to consider such a move.

In his past two seasons at the OHL level with the Ottawa 67's, the 20-year old forward Boucher has tallied 17 goals and 31 points in 45 games, and with plenty of potential, it makes sense for the Flyers to want to land him in a potential deal.

However, Boucher is yet to live up to the expectations that come with being a top-10 pick, and if the Senators believe a cap dump would be worth giving him up, a deal makes sense, but for now, it could be seen as a big risk.
