Rangers and Senators trade negotiations table
Are the Rangers and Senators discussing a major trade for Vladimir Tarasenko? Get the latest NHL trade rumors and analysis.

The NHL trade rumor mill is churning, and the latest buzz has the New York Rangers and Ottawa Senators circling a potential blockbuster deal. At the heart of the speculation is star forward Vladimir Tarasenko, who could be donning a different jersey soon.

The Proposed Trade

Here’s how the mock trade breaks down:

  • New York Rangers receive: Vladimir Tarasenko, Shane Pinto
  • Ottawa Senators receive: Barclay Goodrow, Kaapo Kakko, 2024 first-round pick

Why This Trade Makes Sense (Or Doesn’t)

The potential addition of Tarasenko would be an absolute game-changer for the Rangers. He brings a unique blend of size, strength, and an uncanny ability to find the back of the net – just the missing ingredient for a New York team hungry for consistent scoring. Pinto brings immediate depth to the center position for the Blue Shirts. He’s a responsible two-way player with emerging offensive upside, giving the Rangers the flexibility to roll three highly capable center lines.

From the Senators’ side, the acquisition of Goodrow adds veteran toughness and experience. Kakko brings long-term potential, and the first-round pick adds to their stockpile of rebuild assets.
