The Toronto Maple Leafs have traded forward Patrick Marleau, 2020 conditional 1st round pick (Top 10 protected in 2020, if not used, unprotected in 2021), and a 2020 7th round pick for a 2020 6th round pick.

The Maple Leafs are able to remove Marleau’s $6.25 million salary cap hit as they didn’t retain any salary.

Pierre LeBrun: “Hurricanes will try to convince Marleau to play for them but if the answer is No they will buy him out and make him UFA.”

Chris Johnston: “Patrick Marleau waives his NMC for trade to Carolina and will be bought out by . He’d like to return to San Jose in free agency.”

Michael Smith: “The wild card in the trade is Patrick Marleau, who has a year remaining on a three-year contract and a $6.25 million cap hit. Reports are that he desires to be back out west. A buy out (or maybe a trade) could be an option for the .”

Kevin Kurz: “I understand why Marleau would want to come back to San Jose. But Wilson has so much on his plate right now, I can’t see him making any commitment until the dust settles with free agency”

Brian Lawton: Next question do the welcome Marleau back with open arms or is and old coach a possible landing spot”
