NHL Rumors: Ottawa Senators - A Bidding Group, Tyler Kleven and a What Their Blue Line Could Look Like

A bidder for the Ottawa Senators

TSN: One of the bidders for the Ottawa Senators is claiming a piece of land that has some value. Chris Johnston states a group has a land claim on part of the LeBreton Flats, a location that has actually been hypothesized as a possible area for a brand-new arena, though it’s not slam dunk.

“That’s that the Algonquins of Ontario belong to the First Nations group which has actually stepped up and is shopping the Senators and why that’s substantial is that the Algonquins in fact have a land claim on that piece of home at LeBreton Flats.

NHL Rumors: Vancouver Canucks, Detroit Red Wings, and the Washington Capitals

It’s managed, it’s a federally run piece of home that there’s plainly some distinct chances there if they are the winning quote – and I can inform you that that group of agents that is partnered with Graham Robertson remained in Ottawa on Monday for the Panthers-Senators video game, they met management on Tuesday and they quite stay in the mix shopping this group.”

Where does Tyler Kleven fit in on the Senators blue line and what could it appear like next year and beyond?

Ian Mendes of The Athletic: The Ottawa Senators included Jakob Chychrun at the due date and just recently signed possibility Tyler Kleven. Both are left-handed defensemen. With just Artem Zub and Travis Hamonic, natural right-side defensemen, are the Senators to packed on the left side?

Senators GM Pierre Dorion.

“The way the game is played now, how you slash, cut and gap, it’s not a big deal,” Dorion described. “All Europeans play their other side. I think we make a way bigger deal out of this than what it is.”

Last week Dorion stated that he believes Thomas Chabot can use the ideal side and wishes to see it. Kleven stated he’s willing to play the ideal side.

Potential pairings next season:

Chabot – Chychrun
Sanderson – Zub
Kleven – Brannstrom

or if they’re fine with the novice Kleven playing on the right

Chabot – Brannstrom
Chychrun – Zub
Sanderson – Kleven

NHL Rumors: Evgeny Kuznetsov seeking to leave Washington?

If Hamonic is to come back next season, it will remain in a depth/support function and not at $3 million. Nick Holden is not likely to be back.

They desire Kleven to establish a bit in the AHL. Jacob Bernard-Docker and Lassi Thomson will need to out-battle Kleven to perhaps make the group next season.

Signing Jake Sanderson to a long-lasting extension might be a sensible relocation this offseason. He is trending towards a Charlie McAvoy-type gamer. The Senators may need to bridge him and it might be like Rasmus Dahlin‘s $6 million bridge or McAvoy’s $4.9 million. A long-lasting offer might be over $8 million. McAvoy’s long-lasting offer is at $9.5 million.

Potential Senators blue line and prospective cap hit for the 2025-26 season

Jake Sanderson – $8.5 million
Thomas Chabot – $8 million
Jakob Chychrun – $7 million
Artem Zub – $4.6 million
Erik Brannstrom – $3.5 million
Tyler Kleven – $2 million

Total – $33.6 million
