Trade Talks Concerning Canadian Teams

As the upcoming NHL season draws near, numerous teams are on the move, either looking to enhance their roster or attempting to stay within the salary cap limit.
Specifically, the Vancouver Canucks and the Ottawa Senators are in the spotlight. Elliotte Friedman, on his 32 Thoughts Podcast, shared the following.
On Elliotte Friedman's 32 Thoughts Podcast, he says the Ottawa Senators and Vancouver Canucks are two significant players to watch in the coming days as NHL trade talks heat up across the league

Both the Canucks and Senators find themselves in intriguing yet distinct positions.

Vancouver

Heading into the 2023-24 season, the Canucks are just above $5 million over the salary cap. This figure might seem higher than it actually is as it includes all potential LTIR (Long-Term Injured Reserve) players. Notably, Tucker Poolman seems to be heading for LTIR again, but Tanner Pearson is on his feet, preparing for a comeback.

Considering these updates, the Canucks might be around $2.5 million over the cap, prompting them to consider trading someone. Conor Garland and Tyler Myers are prominent names in the mix. However, there's speculation that a valuable player like Brock Boeser might be traded for valuable returns rather than just making cap space.

Ottawa

The Senators face a slightly different challenge. They're barely under the cap by almost $1 million, but they're yet to re-sign Shane Pinto. With Pinto's impressive tally of 20 goals and 35 points in his rookie season, and potential for more next season, his signing would likely exceed the available cap space.

To accommodate Pinto's anticipated contract, the Senators will have to free up some cap space. One potential move could involve trading Mathieu Joseph, who has an AAV (Average Annual Value) of just under $3 million for the upcoming three seasons. Though parting with such a talent might be tough, it would underline the Senators' commitment to Pinto and also pave the way for players like Ridly Greig to join the main roster.
