Ottawa's Tough Spot: They Must Clear Cap Space to Keep Young Talent

The Ottawa Senators are facing a challenging situation with their salary cap, which could jeopardize their chances of keeping one of their top young talents, Shane Pinto. To make room under the salary cap, Pierre Dorion and the Senators will need to offload money somewhere.
On the other hand, the Philadelphia Flyers are dealing with a different type of difficulty; their fans are bracing themselves for another potentially disastrous season. Nonetheless, this doesn't mean the Flyers should keep themselves from getting new players, especially if they can make a good deal.
Could the Flyers hold the solution to the Senators' problems?

Trade Talks Brewing Between Senators and Flyers Involving Joseph?

Reports suggest that Daniel Briere and the Flyers have expressed interest in forward Mathieu Joseph.
At 26 years old, Joseph has three seasons remaining on his $3 million average annual value contract, making things a bit complicated for the Senators. If they part ways with Joseph, it could free up the necessary cap space to secure Shane Pinto's future.
However, a recent development reported by Elliotte Friedman in his podcast "32 Thoughts" indicates that the Senators might need to sweeten the deal to unload Joseph and his contract.
Friedman had this to say:
"The good thing for Ottawa is Philadelphia likes Mathieu Joseph as a player. They see a fit. The bad news is that it doesn't mean the Flyers will make it easy. They've got the leverage and aren't afraid to use it. They want a high-level prospect or maybe the first-rounder sent by Detroit in the Alex DeBrincat trade. To this point, Ottawa's not willing to do that. It's a poker game. San Jose is another team I've wondered about."

While the Flyers are interested in Joseph, they also have the leverage to demand an additional asset in any potential trade. However, Ottawa has been hesitant to part with a first-round pick or a highly regarded prospect to make the deal happen. Thankfully, the San Jose Sharks have also shown interest, providing the Senators with alternative options if they find the Flyers' demands too steep.
