It’s really tough to find an organization in all of pro sports in more dire straits than what’s happening in Canada’s capital right now. Just a year removed from being a single goal away from making the Stanley Cup final, Ottawa’s fall from grace has been spectacular if not disheartening to view. From the top-down, it’s an organization that spews mismanagement.

Owner Eugene Melnyk has alienated himself from his fanbase with negative comments, ranging from a possible sale or move of the team, to calling out fans for not spending enough on tickets or making it out to games.

It’s no secret either that Ottawa’s arena placement about 40 minutes outside of the city core has become the topic of choice . While talks have occured between ownership and various levels of government to move the arena to the unused LeBreton flats land downtown, no formal agreements have been made, and it would still be several calendar years before we see the Senators actually play in a new home.

On the ice, the year is, more than anything, damage control. Arguably the team’s three best players in Erik Karlsson, Mark Stone, and Matt Duchene are all on expiring contracts, while depth pieces Ryan Dzingel and Chris Wideman also fall into the UFA camp for next season. Any number from none to all five could be out the door, whether it be free agency or a trade. The Senators will likely be one of the most active teams at the deadline, but will still likely be pushing for an extension on as many of those players as they can get.

Stone recently signed a one-year deal worth $7.5 million in order to avoid arbitration that takes him to unrestricted free agency next year, but that doesn’t exactly inspire confidence in the team’s ability to keep him around long-term.

From a goaltending standpoint, Ottawa would actually probably do better moving on from both Craig Anderson and Mike Condon, but each are locked in for the next two seasons.

Just further adding to the trouble are the optics of the team’s 2019 first-round pick, sent to Colorado in the Matt Duchene trade. With the option of giving up either their 2018 or 2019 pick, Ottawa opted for the latter. It’s still much more likely than not that it doesn’t turn into a first overall pick, but the possibility of passing up on a talent such as Jack Hughes for who they selected this year (Brady Tkachuk) might be an all-time bad decision depending on how next season shakes out.

Plenty of teams have been this bad, but usually there’s at least some sort of plan in order to rectify it. Tanking doesn’t particularly help the 2018-19 Senators, but it’s still looking increasingly likely that they’re finish near the bottom of the league.
