The William Nylander trade rumours are heating up, as every day he remains unsigned is another opportunity for a team to make an offer. This time, a Western Candian team is rumoured to be interested.

Willy in Vancouver

According to Eklund on hockeybuzz.com, rumours have arisen that Vancouver has an interest in making a deal with the Leafs for Nylander.

The Canucks are certainly in the position to go big for Nylander. With last season being another struggle, the team needs to reignite itself this year and add a goal-scoring star for the long term that they can continue their build around.

Potential Trade

Here is what a potential mock trade might look like between the two clubs. While we don't know exactly what Toronto is asking for to get Nylander, it's safe to say it's a big ask.
To TOR:
Brock Boeser
Jonathan Lekkerimaki
2024 1st round pick (top 10 protected)
2024 3rd round pick

To VAN
William Nylander (8-year extension in place)
2024 5th round pick

This would be a big trade, but one Vancouver might be desperate enough to make. Adding Nylander would compliment Elias Pettersson, and allow both of them to be the center of a new era in Vancouver.
The Leafs would be getting a whole handful of assets, including Brock Boeser, who could step into a top 6 role for the Leafs, replacing Nylander. While he doesn't have the same production levels as Nylander (55 points to Nylander's 87), Toronto would be getting him for 6.5 for two more years, which gives them some much-needed cap space. They would also get a highly touted prospect and draft picks that would help them down the road either in development or flipping for future assets.
Either way, as time continues to pass, the likelihood that Nylander remains a Leaf in the long term gets lower and lower.
