    As we all know. Nylander is going to be traded. Carolina seems most likely but at the end of the day I don't see Pesce or Slavin being traded for him. I could see Nashville or Vancouver being viable options for a Nylander trade.

    Nashville gives:
    Mattias Ekholm
    Conditional 2nd round pick (If Nashville makes cup final Toronto gets their 2nd, if they don't, they get their 3rd rounder)
    Toronto gives:
    William Nylander
    6th/7th round pick (From the Carrick trade)
    7th round pick

    Nashville gets another top line playmaker (alongside already established Johansen) that can play with either Forsberg or Turris
    Toronto gets their shutdown, top pairing dman in his prime and at a terrific contract.

    Vancouver gives:
    Christopher Tanev
    Conditional 1st (If Vancouver gets top 5 they keep the 1st and give a 2nd rounder, if they are outside the top 5 they give the pick to Toronto)
    3rd round pick
    6th round pick
    Toronto gives:
    William Nylander

    Toronto ends up getting a borderline top pairing guy on a solid deal. While getting valuable draft assets in the trade
    Vancouver guarantees that they get a top 5 pick if they are in the top 5. As well as getting a young star forward in Nylander. Making their top 6 look like one of the better top 6's in the league now. And will be one of the best top 6's in a year or 2 when Petterson and Boeser hit their primes.

    1. We might have the room to sign him now, but Fiala, Hartman, Sissons and Rinne need new contracts after this season. Everyone except Rinne due a raise. That would be a problem.
    2. We have enough wingers already. If we trade one of our top 4 defensemen, I'd rather it be for a true superstar top 6 center aka someone better than Johansen and/or Turris

    Add Josi who is due at the end of 19-20 as well.... he'll likely more than double his current cap hit

    Pass on both to be honest, people will be like "omgggg" but basically if it's not Subban from Nashville, there isn't a lot of interest. Nashville has Ellis, Josi in a few years needs some $ and Fabbro on the way.

    I'd probably do something like Subban and Watson for Nylander, Zaitsev and Leivo.

    Ekholm-Zaitsev
    Josi-Ellis

    Pretty solid top 4, Zaitsev's quality of competition and insane 65% defensive zone start is interesting. Zaitsev's deal will be basically done by the time Fabbro is looking for his next contract.

    I mention Nashville specifically because Lavoie of RDS apparently mentioned that Nashville had an interest in Nylander and I wanted to find a way to make it work. I assume Nashville might want to move on from Watson after what happened but I might be wrong.

    No, we don't know that...


    Leafs need a RHD, not a LHD.

    Leafs get Tanev and a second? For Nylander... If Vancouver has a top five pick? That's hilariously bad.

    Preds won't trade Ekholm for that same reason Leafs won't trade Kadri.
