There's a trade proposal that has caught a lot of attention, suggesting that Mitch Marner from the Toronto Maple Leafs would go to the Calgary Flames.

The proposal, which you can find on Capfriendly.com, is an interesting idea that deserves serious consideration.

Why Toronto Might Like the Trade




First, let's talk about the value of what Toronto would get in this trade.

Rasmus Andersson, a really talented defenseman, would be a great addition to the Maple Leafs' defense. He's good at both offense and defense and has a really good contract, earning just $4.55 million over the next three seasons.

Tyler Toffoli might be the least valuable part of this trade. He had a really good season with 73 points, and he would fit well into Toronto's top six players. He could replace Marner right away. It's worth mentioning that Toffoli showed great leadership skills as the captain of Team Canada, winning a gold medal at the IIHF World Championship.


Matt Coronato is seen as the future replacement for Marner in the top six. He was drafted 13th overall in 2021 and is really good at scoring goals. While playing for Harvard, Coronato scored an impressive 38 goals in 68 games. The Leafs could use him on the third line at first and then move him up when Toffoli's contract ends.

On top of that, the trade would also include a first-round pick in the 2024 draft, which is a nice addition for the Leafs.

Calgary's Perspective on the Trade



For the Calgary Flames, the reason behind this trade proposal is clear: they want to get Mitch Marner.

Undoubtedly, Marner is the best player in this potential trade. He's incredibly talented and can be counted on for 90 points. If he joins the Flames, it would help his teammates like Jonathan Huberdeau and Elias Lindholm, and give the Flames' offense a big boost.


The other players involved, Steeves and the 2024 3rd-round pick, are considered less important, but they help make the trade fair for both sides. Their individual value may vary, but they serve a purpose in keeping the trade balanced.

This trade would allow the Flames to keep all their defensemen and give opportunities to younger players in the top six. Losing one of their top defensemen would be a setback, but the team has enough depth to make this trade without too much worry.

To sum it up, this proposed trade where Marner goes to the Flames is interesting for both teams. Toronto would get valuable assets, including a promising young defenseman, an experienced forward, a rising star, and a future draft pick. Meanwhile, Calgary would get a superstar player who could improve their offense and take the team to new heights.
