28. Ottawa Senators
Previous: No. 29
The Sens are in a pretty tough bind this year. Their star defenseman Erik Karlsson has said publicly that he plans on hitting the free agency market in 2019 and will demand a hefty price tag. Just one year removed from being in the Eastern Conference finals, the Sens have taken a step back and look like they will be sellers at this trade deadline. It’s also pretty obvious that Nashville won the trade that sent Kyle Turris to the Predators and Matt Duchene to Ottawa. Turris has 17 points in 17 games, while Duchene has just five.
