Blockbuster Trade Proposal Sending Mitch Marner to the Islanders

BY JULIEN TREKKER    JUNE 11, 2023  (1:31 PM)

Potential Trade Between the Leafs and the Isles



The Leafs are facing the imminent challenge of ensuring enough cap room to resign their core players. The clock is ticking, with the contracts of Auston Matthews and William Nylander expiring next season, and hefty pay raises on the horizon.

Meanwhile, Islanders GM Lou Lamoriello is wrestling with a crowded center, boasting five key players: Matt Barzal, Bo Horvat, Brock Nelson, JG Pageau, and Casey Cizikas.

This is where a trade could make sense, sending 2015 draft picks in both directions. With the Leafs potentially eyeing Barzal to strengthen their 2nd line center, we could see Barzal's offensive prowess reach a new level.



The Proposal



Headed to TOR:
Mat Barzal (signed for 8 more seasons)
Calle Odelius (2022 2nd round pick)
2024 2nd round pick
Moving to NYI:
Mitch Marner (signed for 2 more seasons)


With the Islanders in need of wingers and the Leafs looking to lighten their cap, this trade could benefit both sides. It could free up an estimated $2 million for the Leafs, giving them enough wiggle room to secure Matthews and Nylander.
