According to a new report, the Toronto Maple Leafs are potentially interested in acquiring a great player.

Despite initial rumors that Brad Treliving would focus on defensemen or goaltenders before the trade deadline, another potential trade target emerged: Sean Monahan from the Montreal Canadiens.

Maple Leafs Eyeing Monahan?

A new update from TSN suggests that Sean Monahan might be available on the market.

"TSN has just updated its 'NHL Trade Bait List,' and out of 20 players, 4 belong to the #Habs (Canadiens):

Mike Matheson
Sean Monahan
Jake Allen
Cayden Primeau
Trade rumors in Montreal are not about to die down!"

It Won't Be That Easy to Trade With the Montreal Canadiens



Kent Hughes, the General Manager of the Canadiens, is known for being cautious when it comes to trading away players. He always wait for the right offer.

Given the Canadiens' surprisingly strong performance this season and indications that they may aim for a playoff spot instead of tanking as seen in recent years, they might not be inclined to part ways with Sean Monahan.

If the Maple Leafs are determined to acquire Monahan, they will need to put forth an appealing offer. Monahan's contract, with an AAV of $2,000,000, adds to his attractiveness as a trade target. Additionally, the fact that Brad Treliving, the Leafs' GM, has experience as the former GM of the Calgary Flames, where Monahan spent the majority of his career, could be advantageous for Toronto in negotiations.


Do you think the Maple Leafs should pursue Sean Monahan before the trade deadline?
