It appears Mitch Marner's time with the Toronto Maple Leafs might be nearing its end. After weeks of speculation, the team seems ready to start fielding trade calls for the star forward.

Marner's latest disappointing playoff performance has worn thin the patience of Toronto fans and management. Since the Game 7 heartbreak against the Boston Bruins, there's been a growing sense that Marner's days in Toronto are numbered.
David Pagnotta of the Fourth Period has now confirmed that GM Brad Treliving and the Leafs are open to trade offers for Marner, who's in the final year of his $10.9 million contract.

For Toronto, trading Marner could be a pivotal move. The team needs help in net and on the blue line, and this trade could reshape their roster.
With new Head Coach Craig Berube at the helm, the Leafs are eager to build a team capable of making a serious Stanley Cup run. They haven't lifted the prestigious trophy since 1967 and have only reached the second round, once in the last two decades.
