Kent Hughes likes to take advantage of the space he has under the salary cap to pick up players and/or prospects on the cheap. He likes young players who can blossom right away, and he's proved it with Kirby Dach and Alex Newhook.

He could well do it again, as the Ottawa Senators and their GM, Pierre Dorion, have put Shane Pinto and Mathieu Joseph on the market. According to Renaud Lavoie, one or more transactions are imminent, because Dorion doesn't want to let things drag on.
Shane Pinto, who is still without a contract, is one to watch today. The Senators would like to deal as quickly as possible so that the Pinto file doesn't drag on too long with the opening of training camps today."

- Renaud Lavoie

The rumour was also confirmed by Eliotte Fridman. The Senators have no wiggle room under the salary cap, so they can't sign Pinto and keep Joseph. It would appear that the phone is still ringing in Ottawa.
Will Kent Hughes be tempted to acquire one of these two players? To take advantage of the Sens' precarious situation to once again pick up one or more assets for next to nothing? The temptation must be strong, no doubt about it!
