Maple Leafs have made decision regarding core four

Right now the main objective for Jim Treliving and the Maple Leafs is to get William Nylander signed. But that raises questions about the rest of the core four and their respective futures in Toronto.

Treliving: our objective is to get Willy signed, and we're working at it.




Mitch Marner is likely the odd one out




Marner could be traded in the offseason but that would require him to waive his no-trade clause and that could be a significant hurdle. One potential trade partner that has been rumoured is the Chicago Blackhawks.

Several persuasive reasons could persuade Marner to reconsider his No-Movement Clause (NMC). He might welcome a new environment, away from the intense focus he faces with the Leafs, or the opportunity to be a foundational piece in the Blackhawks' rebuild, potentially alongside Bedard.

The Leafs find themselves in a challenging situation. They have an abundance of talent, but this has led to significant salary cap constraints, especially considering their need to strengthen other areas of their team. Indications suggest that Mitch Marner might be the initial member of their core group to be traded.
