Leafs Retreat from Brett Pesce Trade Talks

Brett Pesce, the star defenseman of the Carolina Hurricanes, is reportedly on the trade block as he steps into his final contract year with a yearly cap impact of $4.025 million. Communication regarding contract extension between Pesce and the Hurricanes has been scant as both parties strive to ascertain their respective futures.
Originally, the Toronto Maple Leafs showed significant interest in the 28-year-old defenseman. However, they have now stepped back, unwilling to meet the financial demands associated with acquiring Pesce.
Pesce, a New York-born player, is lauded for his defensive prowess. However, he surpassed expectations in the past season, amassing 30 points and an extraordinary plus-43 rating in 82 matches with the Hurricanes.

Flames and Kraken Pursue Pesce

Reports suggest that the Calgary Flames and the Seattle Kraken remain committed to pursuing Pesce. Pesce's contract includes a modified trade clause comprising a 15-team list, to which he's open to transferring.

While the teams included in the 15-team list remain undisclosed, both the Flames and the Kraken could benefit substantially from Pesce's addition to their rosters.
