Trade Alert: Maple Leafs and Canucks Strike a Deal

Recently, the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Vancouver Canucks made a trade.

Brad Treliving decided to move Sam Lafferty in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick.




With just a mere two games under his belt as a Canuck, Lafferty's absence is already felt among the Leafs fanbase.

While the Leafs have a good start of the season, earning two victories in their first two games, the Canucks are matching that pace, defeating the Oilers in two consecutive matches.

Lafferty contributed two points in these confrontations.

His promising performance has left some speculating about the potential heights the Leafs could have reached had he remained.

Though the Leafs have a packed bottom six, Lafferty's presence would have brought additional depth.

However, to maintain the salary cap balance, Brad Treliving made the tough decision, and Lafferty was to one to take the hit.

Do you think Lafferty will score 20 goals this season?
