Crazy trade proposal involving Connor Bedard and the Maple Leafs

BY MARCO    JUNE 19, 2023  (9:09)
Now that the season is officially over and the Stanley Cup has been won, the time of year is ripe for speculation.

There are trade proposals all over the NHL.

This time, the proposal comes from Toronto, and involves Connor Bedard and Auston Matthews.




Indeed, in a sign and trade format, much like Pierre-Luc Dubois wants to do, Matthews would go to Chicago with the Maple Leafs' 2nd pick in exchange for Connor Bedard.

The explanation is that the Blackhawks would have a solid, established player, while the Maple Leafs would have a little over 10 million in salary cap room to sign other players, in addition to not taking the risk of losing number 34 for nothing next summer.

We strongly believe that such a deal will never work, and that the Blackhawks will keep Connor Bedard regardless of the offer they receive. They'll build around him as they did 15 years ago with Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews.
