The Ottawa Senators recently traded Jakob Chychrun in what was an overwhelmingly poor trade, and now the situation gets even worse.

After getting a fantastic deal to land Linus Ullmark while offloading Joonas Korpisalo, the Ottawa Senators followed it up with one of the worst trades imaginable, as they sent Jakob Chychrun to the Washington Capitals for minimal return.
Frank Seravalli mentions every GM, player, agent he's spoken to is mind boggled with the Chychrun trade lol

Now, the story gets worse for GM Steve Staios, as TSN's Darren Dreger has now reported that Staios was at the 2024 NHL Draft in Vegas bragging to other teams about the potential return for Chychrun, claiming that he had a first and a second round pick lined up.
Dreger: "The Chychrun trade was interesting because I know Steve Staios was telling other managers in Vegas at the draft that he had a 1st and a 2nd but was looking for more for Jakob Chychrun. Ahhh, sounds doubtful that he had a 1st and a 2nd"

That move clearly didn't have the desired effect from Staios, as they ultimately got just a solid player in Nick Jensen and a third-round pick... in 2026. The market clearly didn't materialize as the front office expected, and now, they look even worse after what has been an up and down off-season thus far.
