The Best And Worst NHL Teams Heading Into The 2019-20 Season

31. Ottawa Senators

The Senators last made the playoffs in 2016-17, and that drought should continue this season. Ottawa will be all about the kids, with former Toronto assistant D.J. Smith guiding the way behind the bench. Budding talent in 20-year-old Brady Tkachuk (45 points in 2018-19) and defenseman Thomas Chabot (55 points) should allow the Senators to have their moments this season.
