Rumor: Major multi-player Trade impending between Toronto and Calgary

Rumor: Major multi-player Trade impending between Toronto and Calgary

BY TOM BANKS    FEBRUARY 9, 2024  (1:08 PM)
The Calgary Flames and Toronto Maple Leafs have been involved in trade speculation for months now, and it appears to be just a matter of time until a deal is made between the two parties.

Multi-player trade brewing between two Canadian teams?



According to recent reports, a multi-player trade involving a top forward and defenseman going from Calgary to Toronto is brewing, although it doesn't give any specific names involved.

Toronto GM Brad Treliving was with the Flames before landing with the Maple Leafs, and given his connections, there's many players he'd love to land, but one would have to assume that either Chris Tanev or Noah Hanifin would be involved in this deal.

Beyond that, the Flames are potentially interested in moving Jacob Markstrom, so while speculation today states that it could be a F/D combination, don't rule out the addition of a top goaltender either.

Now, Elliotte Friedman has also reported that Toronto don't want to relinquish their 2024 first-round draft pick, but in the likelihood that they land either Tanev or Hanifin and more from Calgary, they could be open to doing so.

«One exception [to trading their 1st round pick] may be Toronto. If the Maple Leafs trade this year's first, they will have one pick in the top two rounds of the next three drafts (a first-rounder in 2026). It's not impossible they decide to move it, but they definitely prefer the opposite and aren't interested in moving Easton Cowan, Matthew Knies or Fraser Minten (their most asked-about youth).»


No matter who is involved, it appears inevitable that these two teams make a deal ahead of the March 8 trade deadline, now we just need to wait and see who is involved.
