What the Senators should be looking at doing this offseason
Shawn Simpson: What Ottawa Senators GM Pierre Dorion should be looking to do this offseason.
Trade Connor Brown
Sign Artem Zub
Sign Josh Norris
Acquire top 6 forward
Aquire forward to replace Brown
Find top 4 right D
Move Nikita Zaitsev
Move Colin White
Buyout Michael Del Zotto
Hire Asst. GM
Add to hockey ops
Run the draft
Shawn Simpson: “If the Sens can’t or won’t extend Brown, the obvious is a trade. That can happen this summer or at the deadline. Right now he’s a key part of the team, and the team is under pressure to win games. He would easily bring back a 1st at the deadline, and then you slide Greig in.”
