The Ottawa Senators and Philadelphia Flyers have been reportedly been discussing multiple trades over the last week or so. Pierre Dorion and the Ottawa Senators are attempting to shed salary ahead of the 2023-24 season so they can attempt to get Shane Pinto signed.

Currently, according to CapFriendly, the Ottawa Senators have just $120,953 in available cap space and still need to sign restricted free agent forward Shane Pinto. The Sens are hoping to do this before the new season begins in two weeks, but Pinto is reportedly asking for over 2 million dollars per season.
However, right now the price for teams to take on salary is at an all time high right now. It has been reported that teams are wanting a first-round pick or a prospect to do so, which could make shedding salary nearly impossible.
According to David Pagnotta of The Fourth Period, the Philadelphia Flyers are reportedly asking for 2021 tenth overall pick Tyler Boucher from the Ottawa Senators if Pierre Dorion wants them to take on Mathieu Joseph.
"The Philadelphia Flyers have spoken with the Senators about Joseph and are believed to be one of the teams asking for a high-priced asset to accommodate a trade. Multiple sources have told TFP's David Pagnotta the Flyers are interested in forward Tyler Boucher, whom the Senators drafted 10th overall in 2021, but Ottawa has been reluctant to consider such a move."

Boucher, 20, played last season with the OHL's Ottawa 67s. He only appeared in 21 games after suffering a shoulder injury at the 2023 IIHF World Hockey Championship that required season ending surgery.
