Ottawa Senators Season Wrap-up

The biggest point of discussion right now is not the team but the GM. One of the more hilarious defenses I’ve heard of Dorion is: 1) all his errors are Melnyk’s fault, or 2) all GMs make mistakes (Zibanejad for Brassard could happen to anyone). Ian Mendes points out Dorion is on the threshold of breaking a historical precedent of being the longest employed GM who consistently missed the playoffs (if he finishes next season he will break Carolina’s Bill Peters record of 328 games). Ian has pushed this point by saying if the team isn’t going to make the playoffs, Dorion should step aside (going through the GM’s rather hilarious pronouncements over the years about his goals and the state of rebuild–comments he’s conveniently forgotten). This willingness to push the org is one of the things I like about Mendes and perhaps the reason he’s at The Athletic and no longer hosting TSN 1200 anymore. The Mendes career arc reminded me of the contrast with Travis Yost, who made his name doing journalism about the team on Hockeybuzz, but now restricts himself to analytics on TSN.

As Mendes mentioned, coming into this season, just like last season (2021-22) and going back to 2019-20, Ottawa was supposed to make a serious push for the playoffs. How different has this season been? Let’s look at the raw numbers:

2021-22 33-42-7 224 (26th) 264 (22nd) PP 19.3 (20th) PK 80.3 (13th)
2022-23 39-35-8 259 (18th) 270 (20th) PP 23.5 (8th) PK 80.1(14th)

Finishing with 86 points (13 more than last year), the team was 11th in the east and 21st overall (moving up 5 spots in the standings). The major difference (6 more wins) was due to an increase in offense (35 more goals), as the team gave up slightly more goals (+6), and their PK was essentially unchanged (-0.2%).

Before we have fun and look at offense, let’s look at the part of the game ex-players and coaches spend 99% of their time talking about: defense. Clearly the coach has limited impact, so let’s focus on personnel. What’s changed between seasons?

Thomas Chabot, DL, 1-18/15, 59-7-31-38 0.62 (0.60) 27th among d-men
Michael Del Zotto, DL, FA, 26-3-10-13 0.50 (0.36) -> AHL
Travis Hamonic, DR, T-Van (3-80/22, Elias Pettersson), 43-4-6-10 0.23 (0.26)
Artyom Zub, DR, FA, 81-6-16-22 0.27 (0.28)
Nick Holden, DL, T-VGK (Dadonov trade), 76-5-14-19 0.25 (0.28)
Erik Brannstrom, DL, T-VGK (Stone trade), 53-0-14-14 0.26 (0.27)
Nikita Zaitsev, DR, T-Tor (Ceci trade), 62-2-9-11 0.17 (0.26)
Victor Mete, DL, Waivers, 37-0-7-7 0.18 (0.21) -> 9th D in Toronto
Thomas Chabot, DL, 1-18/15, 68-11-30-41 0.60 (0.62) tied for 31st among d-men
Jake Sanderson, DL, 1-5/20, 77-4-28-32 0.42 (NCAA) 3rd rookie d-men
Jakob Chychrun, DL, T-Ari (1st 2023, Wsh 2nd 2024, 2nd 2026), 12-2-3-5 0.42 (0.44)
Travis Hamonic, DR, T-Van (3-80/22, Elias Pettersson), 75-6-15-21 0.28 (0.23)
Nick Holden, DL, T-VGK (Dadonov trade), 65-2-14-16 0.25 (0.25)
Erik Brannstrom, DL, T-VGK (Stone trade), 74-2-16-18 0.24 (0.26)
Artyom Zub, DR, FA, 53-3-7-10 0.19 (0.27)
Nikita Zaitsev, DR, T-Tor (Ceci trade)/T-Chi (2nd 2023, 4th 2026 in return for nothing), 28-0-5-5 0.18 (0.17)

The major change year-to-year was the addition of Sanderson, an obvious upgrade, but that only impacted offensive numbers (Chychrun didn’t play enough this season for his effect to be felt). If the top-four can stay healthy, I think the Sens have a competitive group, although the quality of the depth behind them remains untested. How will the roster change? I thought Holden would be allowed to walk (and he was); I think the team will trade Brannstrom (who is ill-suited to the 5-6 spot) with either a sign-and-trade or a direct move. If that’s correct, that means Kleven and JBD move onto the roster (I think Thomson is better than JDB, whose limitations with the puck are exceptional, but I’m not making the decisions–Dorion may give JBD the classic first year two-way, second year one-way to keep his cap number down). I’m unsure about Hamonic–I’d let him walk, but I feel like Dorion will keep him if it’s on a team-friendly deal (he apparently talked to him about a one-year deal).

It’s worth addressing the offensive side of this group. Chabot has settled into a predictable range of production which, while good, is at the bottom end of top blueline producers. Adding Sanderon and Chychrun shifts the group out of the utterly anemic, but it’s unclear if there’s an elite puck mover (Sanderson could get there, perhaps, although that’s not how he was projected when drafted–granted, having read more Corey Pronman than any healthy person should, it’s a default reflex from him to criticize offensive ability); at 25 you’d think Chychrun‘s production won’t change much, but people like Jason York and Denis Potvin think it takes a long time for a blueliner to hit their stride, so increases are possible. A team can win without an elite offensive defensemen, but it’s rare to win to a Cup without one (Carolina in 2006 is what immediately springs to mind).

Let’s move to goaltending (the position Bob Essensa seems to understand so well):

Anton Forsberg, GL, Waivers-WPG, .917 (.909)
Matt Murray, GL, T-Tor (3rd 2023 and 7th 2024 for nothing in return), .906 (.911) -> continued decline in Toronto (.903)
Filip Gustavsson, GL, T-Min (Talbot trade), .892 (.905) -> Career year (.931)
Cam Talbot, GL, T-Min (Gustavsson trade), .898 (.911)
Anton Forsberg, GL, Waivers-WPG, .902 (.917)
Mads Sogaard, GL, 2-37/19, .889 (.889)

Numbers went down, with Talbot reverting to his late Edmonton form (as the analytics community warned he could), and Forsberg dropping towards his career average. In short, the goaltending was not very good. I expect Talbot to be let go (now confirmed, although Dorion tried to re-sign him in January), but will the team go with Forsberg/Sogaard? I’m not sure, particularly given the cap situation (see below). I’m doubtful of the pair, although you have to wonder how much of the performance in Ottawa rests on the shoulders of goaltending coach Zac Bierk. More broadly, goalies don’t tend to hit their stride until 25-26 and Sogaard turns 23 in December. My preference would see Sogaard play in Belleville next year and have the Sens sign someone else to play with Forsberg. Ottawa has a long track record of rushing goalie prospects (Robin Lehner, Brian Elliott, and Filip Gustavsson come to mind), so it will be interesting to see what they do.

Defensive Forwards
The other factor is the assemblage of ‘defensive forwards’ taking up space at the bottom of the roster (a tendency Dorion has had in the AHL as well): Joseph, Kelly, Kastelic, Watson, Gambrell, and the added P. Brown. This group changed absolutely nothing. The org should let Watson, Brown, and Gambrell walk, but D. J. Smith seems to love Gambrell and Dorion loves Watson, so it’s unclear if they will. Keep in mind on good teams there’s a scoring threat throughout the lineup, something Ottawa does not currently have. I think we can also accept that not only did the Sens overpay to acquire Joseph, but signing him to a lengthy deal was also a mistake (as I said at the time, at least his salary is low enough he can probably be moved, but I wouldn’t expect much in return).

Small Sample Size and Late Season Production

I mentioned this last year and I’ll say it again: pay no attention to numbers put up at the end of the season. It happened to Joseph last year and he’s a great illustration of how little it means (his season this year is almost an exact mirror of his 20-21 year in Tampa). Since the Bryan Murray-era (07-08) the Sens have had a bad habit of being won over by small sample size and I’m interested to see what they do with the potpourri of miscellaneous marginalia Dorion added before the trade deadline. Let’s quickly go through it (we’ll grade it via this criteria: did they perform as advertised, was their performance worth the cost, and did they help the team win?):

Patrick Brown, RW, age 30-31 (acquired from Philadelphia for a 2023 6th-rounder)
Phi 43-2-5-7 0.16
Ott 18-2-3-5 0.27
NHL career 138-10-14-24 0.17
I have no clue what Dorion was thinking here. You could argue that Brown isn’t even an NHL player and as he’s about to turn 31 there’s no performance upside to project (albeit there’s some bafflement in seeing former Sens 1st-rounder Stefan Noesen evolving into a useful player in Carolina at 30, but in his case there had been flashes of this before in New Jersey). I’d rather have a 6th-round pick despite the odds then six weeks of Brown (my updated look at draft performance is forthcoming btw). The Sens should walk away from him at season’s end, but apparently have talked to him about staying.
Grade: F (performance as expected, but failed the other two categories)

Julien Gauthier, RW, age 25-26 (acquired from the Rangers to get rid of off-season signee Tyler Motte)
NYR 40-6-3-9 0.22
Ott 17-3-2-5 0.29
NHL career 153-14-18-32 0.21
Has the size the org loves (he’s 6’4), but there’s a reason why this is the 1st-rounder’s third team already. He’s not talented enough to play in the top-six and despite his size he can’t (or won’t) bang and grind on the fourth line. With that said I was fine with Dorion taking a chance on him given the exchange (especially since he got a pick back as well). The right thing to do is to let Gauthier walk despite his RFA status (since Sokolov will grind), but we may be in a Dylan Gambrell situation where the Sens fall in love with a marginal player.
Grade: C (performance and cost were fine, but did not help the team win)

I’m looking at these additions instead of Jakob Chychrun because the deal with Phoenix was about more than just the stretch-run (I looked at it here and I think it’s a fantastic trade). I’ve also left out the Nikita Zaitsev trade for the same reason–no bodies were added, so even though I think it’s a bad trade (link above), it’s not relevant to the immediate roster. If the above seems familiar–paying a cost for irrelevant depth player–it’s because Dorion has a long, long history of doing this–just as he does with Zaitsevs by another name (bodies brought in at cost whom he then has to pay more to get rid of–Matt Murray, Josh Brown, etc). It’s a sign that Dorion (and his staff) have not evolved much. I’ve always said that Ottawa’s amateur scouting has been good (or at least average), but their pro scouting has been terrible.

What about the off-season? Let’s look at the bodies that were brought in to make Ottawa a playoff team:

Alex Debrincat, RW, age 25-26 (acquired from Chicago at tremendous cost)
Chi 82-41-37-78 0.95
Ott 82-27-39-66 0.80
Career 450-187-186-373 0.83
When he was signed I had a lot of concerns, something not shared in the fanbase until six months later, but echoed by outsiders at the time. The Sens paid an enormous price for someone they have to re-sign after one season–a similar scenario to when Dorion traded for Matt Duchene in 2017 and whose disastrous results I went through (link above). In terms of the numbers, I think they’re less than expected but fine, but aren’t the numbers of a 9 million dollar player, nor is it clear just how much the Sens needed to add a player like him. To me he’s the sixth best forward on the team (behind Tkachuk, Stutzle, Giroux, Norris, and Batherson), but he’s not going to sign for Batherson-money, so what are you going to do with him? Dorion can’t recoup the cost of adding him and I can’t imagine retaining him through a nine million dollar season (ownership aside, what would be the point?). Back in September I talked about the Cap problems Dorion was steering the team towards and while a deep-pocketed owner could partially solve them, it’s very easy to hit that ceiling and they need deals for Pinto, a long term deal for Sanderson (kicking in the year after), an extension for Chychrun (the season after that), and something for Formenton (they have to do something with that asset at least)–with Debrincat already qualified they are at 74.77 million. Reading the tea leaves it seems like the org wants to move on from Debrincat, something I gauge from local media and personalities promoting the idea–typically that does not happen when the org is keen on keeping him.
Grade: C (performance is fine, but fails the other two categories)

Cam Talbot, GL, age 35-36 (acquired from Minnesota for Filip Gustavsson)
Min 49gp 2.76 0.911
Ott 36gp 2.93 0.898
When the deal was made I thought it was a worthwhile risk to have someone experienced backing-up Forsberg (whose future success I had major concerns about and keeping in mind I did not think Ottawa was going to make the playoffs this year); it also seemed like Gustavsson needed a change from Ottawa. Travis Yost sounded the alarm immediately, talking about concerning underlying numbers and the analytics were on point. Even if he’d stayed healthy, this has been an awful year for the ‘tender (his worst since Edmonton in 2018-19). The team is letting him walk, as they should, although it’s on-point for Dorion to have tried to keep him despite his performance.
Grade: F (on all counts)

Tyler Motte, LW, age 28 (FA from NYR, who had picked him up from Vancouver to be part of their playoff run)
Van/NYR 58-7-8-15 0.25
Ott 38-3-6-9 0.23
NHL career 331-43-38-81 0.24
When signed I had no idea what Dorion was thinking (Nichols thought a career year of underlying numbers was prophetic–it was not). Ottawa was stuffed with players like him and he was shipped out for the cheaper and younger Gauthier (above).
Grade: F (performance was fine, but failed the other categories)

Derick Brassard, LW, age 35-36 (FA from Edmonton, who got him from Philadelphia for the playoffs and didn’t use him)
Phi/Edm 46-8-11-19 0.41
Ott 62-13-10-23 0.37
NHL career 1013-215-330-545 0.53
In the twilight of his career, the player Ottawa give up Mika Zibanejad for (classic Dorion move) returned to play a minor role on a team going nowhere. When they signed him I didn’t see the point, but also thought there was no harm in doing it and that’s how it’s turned out. I don’t think he helped or hurt the team (most of his production was on the second unit PP), as within the realm of things Dorion, adding him was tolerable. There’s no place for him on the team next season (I see Dorion offering him a PTO as a polite waive goodbye).
Grade: C (performance/cost were fine, but failed the other category)

With the exception of Debrincat, none of these players have the value of Alex Formenton, who missed the entire season in the NLA (22-10-3-13) ostensibly for contract reasons, but I suspect for optics (as Dorion more or less admitted in his press conference). As I’ve discussed before, I don’t know the truth of what happened, but I’ve learned the lesson not to simply assume until matters have gone further than they have here–with no tangible legal action being taken, I’m guessing the NHL’s investigation will more or less absolve him (unlike the Chicago/Brad Aldrich situation, where there was evidence aplenty to bring the hammer down, or like Slava Voynov for that matter).

Offensive Improvement

The part of the game that brings people to the rink and gets talked about the least–offense! Scoring 35 more goals is hugely significant and the reason the team won more games. Let’s compare last season to this one:

Drake Batherson, RW, 4-121/17, 46-17-27-44 0.95 (0.67)
Brady Tkachuk, LW/C, 1-4/18, 79-30-37-67 0.84 (0.69)
Josh Norris, C, T-SJ (Karlsson deal), 66-35-20-55 0.83 (0.72)
Tim Stutzle, C/LW, 1-3/20 (Karlsson trade), 79-22-36-58 0.73 (0.66)
Connor Brown, RW, T-Tor/T-Wsh (Ceci trade; Wsh 2/24 flipped for Chychrun), 64-10-29-39 0.60 (0.49) -> played 4 games due to injury
Tyler Ennis, C/W, FA, 57-8-16-24 0.42 (0.49) -> NLA (37-13-20-33)
Alex Formenton, LW, 2-47/17, RFA, 79-18-14-32 0.40 (0.30) -> NLA (22-10-3-13)
Mathieu Joseph, C/W, T-TB (Paul trade), 69-12-18-30 0.43 (0.35)
Parker Kelly, C/LW, FA, 41-7-5-12 0.29 (AHL)
Chris Tierney, C, FA (Karlsson trade), 1 yr, 70-6-12-18 0.25 (0.40) -> dumped by Florida onto Montreal (0.27)
Austin Watson, W, T-Nsh (4-124/21, Jack Matier), 67-10-6-16 0.23 (0.25)
Mark Kastelic, C, 5-125/19, 16-2-2-4 0.25 (AHL)
Adam Gaudette, C, Waivers, 50-4-8-12 0.24 (0.32) -> AHL
Shane Pinto, C, 2-32/19, 5-0-1-1 0.20 (0.47)
Dylan Gambrell, C, T-SJ (7-204/22, Adam Zlnka), 63-3-4-7 0.11 (0.17)
Tim Stutzle, C/LW, 1-3/20 (Karlsson trade), 78-39-51-90 1.15 (0.73)
Brady Tkachuk, LW/C, 1-4/18, 82-35-48-83 1.01 (0.84)
Claude Giroux, C/RW, FA, 82-35-44-79 0.96 (0.86)
Alex Debrincat, W, T-Chi (1-7/22, Kevin Korchinski, 2-39/22, Paul Ludwinski, 3/24), 82-27-39-66
0.80 (0.95)
Drake Batherson, RW, 4-121/17, 82-22-40-62 0.76 (0.95)
Ridly Greig, CL, 1-28/20 (Pageau trade), 20-2-7-9 0.45 (WHL)
Shane Pinto, C, 2-32/19, 82-20-15-35 0.43 (0.20)
Josh Norris, C, T-SJ (Karlsson trade), 8-2-1-3 0.38 (0.83)
Derick Brassard, CL, FA, 62-13-10-23 0.37 (0.41)
Mathieu Joseph, C/W, T-TB (Paul trade), 56-3-15-18 0.32 (0.43)
Julien Gauthier, RW, T-NYR (Motte trade), 17-3-2-5 0.29 (0.22)
Patrick Brown, CR, T-Phi (6th 2023), 18-2-3-5 0.28 (0.20)
Tyler Motte, CL, T-NYR (Gauthier trade), 38-3-6-9 0.24 (0.25)
Mark Kastelic, C, 5-125/19, 65-7-4-11 0.17 (0.25)
Dylan Gambrell, C, T-SJ (7-204/22, Adam Zlnka), 60-4-6-10 0.17 (0.11)
Austin Watson, W, T-Nsh (4-124/21, Jack Matier), 75-9-2-11 0.15 (0.23)
Parker Kelly, C/LW, FA, 55-1-3-4 0.07 (0.29)

Despite losing Norris for most of the season, career years from Stutzle (who was fully moved to center) and Tkachuk powered the team forward; Giroux also had a fantastic season (his best since 18-19). Pinto, returning from having missed most of last year, posted numbers similar to his rookie year (0.47). Batherson, troubled by injury and the accusations that chased Formenton, had a solid year, but down from the year prior. Kelly and Watson both declined (the former off a cliff), Joseph returned to typical numbers and we got a taste of Greig at this level (who is a couple of years away from fully hitting his stride). Broadly, the Sens had a top-six that can compete, but things fall off beyond that (Pinto wasn’t ready to fill a top-six role).

In terms of forward contracts, DeBrincat, Pinto, Gambrell, and Gauthier are RFAs (Mark Wallace believes all RFAs will be resigned), while Watson, Brown, and Brassard are UFAs. With the exception of Pinto and DeBrincat, I’d let them all walk. Locking up Pinto ought to be the priority, but I’d move DeBrincat (see above; perhaps with a sign-and-trade). Do I think the Sens will do all the above? No. One or both of Watson and Gambrell will be kept (we’ve had confirmation that Dorion wants the former back, but there’s disagreement over term so it may not happen) and a number of scenarios are possible with DeBrincat (he might get the Mark Stone treatment–Dorion will want to recoup the 1st-round pick he gave up for DeBrincat, but unless he’s very lucky it won’t be in the top-ten, so even if he gets it, it won’t be the same value).

The Lineup

We’ll go through what I’d do and then what I think Dorion/Smith will do (assuming they both remain). Keep in mind that for the 2023 draft, Ottawa has just 4 picks, with the earliest in the 4th round, so immediate depth can’t come from it (barring trades). Players in italics are either possible targets to move or could wind up in the minors (I’ve used the CapFriendly RFA calculator for qualifying numbers–I’m not implying all or even most will wind up at that number, it’s just the bare minimum if they stay).

Tkachuk (8.2/5yrs) – Stutzle (8.35/8yrs) – Giroux (6.5/2 yrs)
LW UFA/tradeNorris (7.95/7yrs) – Batherson (4.975/4yrs)
Formenton (RFA)Pinto (RFA, 0.874) – Joseph (2.95/3yrs)
Crookshank (0.838/1yr)Kastelic (0.835/2yrs) – Sokolov (RFA, 0.787)

Extra: LW Kelly (0.762/1yr)

Chabot (8.0/5yrs) – Zub (4.6/4yrs)
Sanderson (0.925/1yr) – Chychrun (4.6/2yrs)
Kleven (0.916/2yrs)Thomson (0.863/1yr)

Extra: RD Bernard-Docker (RFA, 0.874)

Forsberg (2.75/2yrs) – UFA G

Meaningful Prospects (those the org thinks could be ready)
G Sogaard (0.925/1yr), C/LW Greig (0.863/2yrs)
Prospects to be re-signed/signed or released
LD Larsson (RFA), G Ferguson (RFA), C/LW Lodin (RFA), LD Aspirot (RFA), G Mandolese (RFA), LD Tychonick (2-48/18), L/LW Novak (7-188/18), C Loheit (7-194/18), RD Roger* (2-49/21), RW Latimer (4-123/21), LD Romeo (7-202/21)
* Roger signed an ATO in Belleville, but never dressed for a game

My iteration of the team has an improved third line while letting (older) prospects fill out the fourth (I left Joseph in the lineup–while he should ultimately be moved, the return would be poor and in the short-term he’s fine to start with). Either the trading of Debrincat or through free agency the team grabs a leftwinger to slot in with Norris on the second line (I’ve seen the dreams of Pierre-Luc Dubois, but I don’t think the Sens can afford him). While neither Sokolov or Crookshank bang like Watson, both go to the dirty areas and they have better hands. The downside is neither are particularly fast (unlike Kelly–granted, Watson isn’t either), but they are cheap and if there are issues are easily cycled back to Belleville. On the blueline I prefer Thomson to JDB, with the latter serving as a competent #7 or #8 who can fill-in for the inevitable injuries. Thomson would be a good compliment to Kleven–a fast, puck-moving blueliner next to a physical one. In the crease Sogaard needs more seasoning–he’s been maddeningly inconsistent at both levels, so I’d sign a veteran to play with Forsberg. What do I think Dorion will do? Differences in red.

Tkachuk (8.2/5yrs) – Stutzle (8.35/8yrs) – Giroux (6.5/2 yrs)
DeBrincat (9.0/1yr)Norris (7.95/7yrs) – Batherson (4.975/4yrs)
LW UFAPinto (RFA, 0.874) – Joseph (2.95/3yrs)
Kelly (0.762/1yr)Kastelic (0.835/2yrs) – P. Brown (UFA)

Extra: RW Gauthier (RFA, 0.840), C/RW Gambrell (RFA, 0.997)

Chabot (8.0/5yrs) – Zub (4.6/4yrs)
Sanderson (0.925/1yr) – Chychrun (4.6/2yrs)
Kleven (0.916/2yrs)Hamonic (UFA)

Extra: RD Bernard-Docker (RFA, 0.874)

Forsberg (2.75/2yrs) – Sogaard (0.925/1yr)

I think Dorion will move Debrincat, but I have no idea when, so I’ve left him on the board. I think Formenton will be signed and moved (probably for picks; there’s no point in leaving him in Switzerland–this isn’t a Mikael Wikstrand situation), as will Brannstrom (also for picks). He’s approached Brown to stay and, really, where else is he going to go? Both Gauthier and Gambrell are cheap and easy to keep, albeit playing the same side makes keeping both redundant. On the blueline we know Dorion loves JBD, but I think he’ll bring back Hamonic if the numbers work for both sides (it’s likely more about contract length than cost). Finally, pushing young goalies into the lineup is a proud org tradition, so I suspect Sogaard will back-up Forsberg.

Final Thoughts

The Sens became an entertaining team to watch this season, despite having plenty of problems. I like a lot of the components and the foundation is there for a playoff team, but do they have the management to get them there?

I’ve long thought Dorion was a terrible GM (going back to the Zibanejad trade), but I like the long term deals he signed this off-season (other than Joseph) and the fantastic trade for Chychrun (assuming he can stay healthy and be re-signed). The problem remains all the other nonsense he does–what, really, was the point of getting DeBrincat? It’s similar to the Duchene trade or Zibanejad trade. The team didn’t actually need Debrincat‘s offensive punch; he costs too much (both in terms of assets spent and in real dollars) and he was always just two seasons away from controlling his own fate. Beyond that we have Dorion’s persistent belief in marginal players who inevitably crash and burn (either absolutely or in terms of expectations). This was apparent on the AHL side as well, although of late someone has stopped some of it (he does his damage in the off-season, then during the year better moves are made). The best thing for the future would be to dump Dorion before he can tinker too much more (realistically he’ll be around for the draft and the beginning of free agency), but until we have a new owner it’s difficult to know what will happen (they may well give him one more season). I’d also get rid of most of the team’s pro scouts, since poor pro scouting has long been a problem in Ottawa.
