NHL Burning Questions: Ottawa Senators

This is the newest file in THN.com’s ongoing “Three Burning Questions” series. In this series, we ask three big questions for each NHL team prior to the start of the 2022-23 regular season. In this file, we’re posing Three Burning Questions about the Ottawa Senators.

THREE BURNING QUESTIONS FOR THE SENATORS IN 2022-23:

1. How quickly will the Senators’ big-time off-season acquisitions come together to drastically increase the potency of the team’s offense? Not long. Sens GM Pierre Dorion made arguably the best moves of any of his colleagues this past summer, landing young star forward Alex DeBrincat, veteran star forward Claude Girioux, and veteran goalie Cam Talbot. All three acquisitions should make a sizeable impact in their own distinct ways: DeBrincat brings his soft hands, sharp eye and consistency scoring the puck; Giroux is a playmaker with the ability to chip in 20 goals or more; and Talbot carries his ferocious competitive nature into a battle for playing time with Anton Forsberg.
