According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Senators' odds to make the playoffs next season are currently sitting at 5/6. They also have the same odds to miss the postseason altogether and are 50/1 long shots to win the 2015 Stanley Cup, putting them in the bottom half of the league in terms of odds.

The Senators made a big move this offseason in trading Jason Spezza and Ludvig Karlsson to the Dallas Stars in exchange for Alex Chiasson, Nicholas Paul, Alex Guptill and a 2015 second round pick.

Chiasson scored 13 goals and 35 points in 79 games as a rookie in 2013-14, although Ottawa didn't acquire a star in the making. At the very least, however, he should be a serviceable top-six forward.

Guptill had 12 goals and 25 points in 31 games with the University of Michigan last season and was taken with the 77th overall pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. 

Paul scored 26 goals and registered 20 assists in 67 OHL games in 2013-14 and was selected in the fourth round of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.

Some of the other moves that Ottawa made this offseason was signing center Carter Camper to a one-year, two-way deal and re-signing winger Cole Schneider to a contract extension. Of course, the two biggest movse outside of the Spezza trade was adding former Red Wing center David Legwand (two years, $6 million) and re-signing Milan Michalek to a three-year, $12 million deal.
