But Nylander and the Leafs are having trouble agreeing on a new contract. He wants more money than the team is willing to give him.

Because of this disagreement, there might be a trade happening soon. Here's the intriguing proposal:

Can it Happen?



For Toronto, this trade could be really good. Lindholm is known for being a strong player both offensively and defensively. In the 2021-22 season, he scored 40 goals and had 82 points. He was even a finalist for the Selke award.

The added bonus for Toronto is the first-round pick they would receive along with Lindholm.

From Calgary's perspective, this trade looks really good. Getting Nylander, who is younger and arguably more talented, could be a big win for them. There's also a good chance that Nylander would sign a contract extension with the team if they offer him the right amount of money.

With Nylander on their team, the Flames could have a very strong first line with Huberdeau, Kadri, and Nylander.
