16 trade targets for the Maple Leafs
Jonas Seigel and James Mirtle of The Athletic: Looking at 16 potential trade targets for the Toronto Maple Leafs.
1. Jeff Petry – Canadiens – one-year left at $5.5 million. Acquisition cost would be high for the Canadiens to trade him to their division rival.
4. Matt Dumba – Wild – three years left at $6 million. The acquisition cost would be high.
5. P.K. Subban – Devils – two years left at $9 million. The Devils may have to retain 50 percent of the deal, and how much extra would that then require the Leafs to pay.
6. Sami Vatanen – Devils – UFA – The Leafs may not want to go the rental route, but if the non-rental cost is too high, Vatanen could be their best option.
7. Jake Gardiner – Hurricanes – three-years left at $4.05 million.
8. Alec Martinez – Kings – one year left at $4 million.
9. Alexandar Georgiev – Rangers – RFA – Leafs have already checked and shouldn’t be interested in the Rangers want Kapanen or Anders Johnsson.
10. Nick Bonino – Predators – one-year left at $4.1 million.
11. Robin Lehner – Blackhawks – pending UFA with a current $5 million cap hit. Blackhawks would have to become sellers and retain salary.
12. David Savard – Blue Jackets – one-year left at $4.25 million.
13. Sam Bennett – Flames – one-year left at $2.55 million. Leaf scouts have been watching the Flames and they’ve been intrigued for a while now.
14. Ryan Miller – Ducks – pending UFA at $1.125 million. Could the Leafs include Miller in a deal for Manson? Miller has a six-team trade list and may not want to leave California.
15. Dylan DeMelo – pending UFA at $900,000. Could be cheaper to acquire than some of the other defensemen.
