Blockbuster Trade Rumour Could Result in Nylander Leaving Toronto

Published August 1, 2023 at 2:05 PM

The Nylander saga continues in Toronto as Brad Treliving has not yet signed the star forward to a contract extension. The talks between the two have reportedly come to a halt. With limited cap space Treliving will inevitably look at all of his options to get the best return for Nylander if he is unable to reach an agreement on his contract.

Nylander Out West

One rumour has surfaced that reports trade discussions between the Leafs and San Jose Sharks, sending Nylander to San Jose for Erik Karlsson.


It's no doubt that a forward like Nylander would be of high value on the trade market. Karlsson is one of the most sought-after players on the trade market this off-season.

Moving Pieces

The Karlsson trade depends on whether or not the Leafs can move Nylander on agreeable terms with San Jose. It is also rumoured that the New York Islanders were interested in Nylander. San Jose is clearly holding out for the best deal, with numerous teams showing interest in Karlsson. It is rumoured that the Penguins and Hurricanes are ready to make a deal, but San Jose wants to try and make it work with Toronto first.


Blockbuster trades are difficult to make work, but it is clear that NHL GMs are not done making big moves yet this offseason.
