Brady Tkachuk is reportedly being shopped at the deadline: Kent Hughes and the Montreal Canadiens need to keep an eye open

The Ottawa Senators started the season full of hope. However, they quickly became one of the biggest disappointments in the league this season.

Just when it seemed they had moved to the next stage of their rebuild, that of making the playoffs, the team failed to deliver. So much so that the club's new owner, Michael Andlauer, made a major cleanout. He not only replaced Pierre Dorion with Steve Staios, but he also approved the firing of head coach DJ Smith.

The cleanup is not over yet

Brady Tkachuk could be traded? EXCUSE ME?




According to Ryan Whitney, the cleaning could still continue in the Nation's capital. The former NHL player thinks that the Sens are shopping their captain Brady Tkachuk and that a big trade is in the works.


"The Senators are cooking something up right now. The 'Boys' have heard that Ottawa might trade Brady Tkachuk. I can't believe it because nobody could be that stupid."

- Ryan Whitney

This should be taken with a grain of salt, but the rumors seem to be there.

In 55 games this season, Tkachuk has accumulated 25 goals and 22 assists for a total of 47 points. This total would give him 70 points on an 82-game projection. The 24-year-old now finished the 2022-2023 season with a total of 83 points, a career-high for him.

A trade involving Tkachuk could restart the Senators' rebuild. Depending on the return, they might take a step back in order to come back stronger. Currently 14 points away from a playoff spot, they have a record of 25-27-3. With three games in hand, they are one point above the Habs.

One thing is certain, a trade involving Brady Tkachuk would create a tsunami not only in Ottawa but throughout the entire NHL. It would also show the organization's intentions while demonstrating the style of the new GM, Steve Staios.

Yes, if this turns out to be true, Kent Hughes and the Montreal Canadiens must take interest!
