The Leafs would save money because Makar would be on an entry level contract.. With the savings the Leafs can afford Matthews & Marner. The Leafs get Makar (right shot) because they will not be drafting at the top of draft for a long time to get someone with this kind of potential. Av's make this trade to get secondary scoring. Nylander can play centre or wing and is entering his prime. The Avs make this trade because they have lots of depth on D.
