The Toronto Maple Leafs and San Jose Sharks are currently being discussed as potential trading partners in a significant deal that's gaining traction online.

Leafs And Sharks: A Potential Perfect Trade Match As Hertl Seeks Exit from San Jose



The Toronto Maple Leafs are focused on a Stanley Cup championship bid this season. To enhance their chances, they need to strengthen their team, particularly in defense and offensive depth.

The San Jose Sharks are in a phase of asset liquidation to rebuild their team. A key player, Tomas Hertl, is reportedly seeking a new team, and the Maple Leafs are a likely match.

San Jose aims to transfer Hertl, who has seven years remaining in his contract. For a feasible deal with Toronto, they might retain a part of his salary. They could also include defenseman Ty Emberson, a promising player, to bolster the Leafs' defense.

For Leafs to Acquire Hertl, Domi Might Be Traded to Sharks



To accommodate Hertl and his salary, the Leafs would likely need to trade Max Domi. Despite Domi's importance to the team and his sentimental value to fans, his performance hasn't met expectations. Hertl would be a strategic improvement.

If San Jose agrees to trade Hertl and a defenseman for Domi, the Leafs might regret not accepting the deal for sentimental reasons.
