Here are three proposed trades for leafs Star Mitch Marner

Published May 26, 2023 at 10:41

The Toronto Maple Leafs seems to be on the brink of major changes. No one's position within the organization - from the office staff to the players on the ice - appears to be completely secure. The determination of Shanahan to bring in a General Manager who is unafraid of making tough decisions is clear. Whoever lands this role could immensely change the organization.

In echo of what happened in Toronto in the lat few weeks, speculations and whispers about a potential reshuffling of the Core Four have been surfacing. This move would create some wiggle room within the salary cap, allowing for the re-signing of several UFAs.

The folks over at Editor in Leaf came up with three plausible trade scenarios involving Mitch Marner.

Three Potential Trade Scenarios Involving Marner

There's no questioning Marner's standing as one of the NHL's finest. His worth to the Leafs is huge, and should they decide to make him available for trade, they could anticipate a substantial return.

Scenario #1: Winnipeg Jets

Heading to the Leafs: Mark Scheifele, Adam Lowry, and 1st Round Pick (18th overall)
Going off to Winnipeg: Mitch Marner

A rebuild seems inevitable in the Jets. Mitch Marner could potentially be the missing puzzle piece.

Scenario #2: San Jose Sharks

Leafs receive: Erik Karlsson
Sharks receive: Mitch Marner

A swap here could be a win-win. Toronto is hunting for a powerful, offensively skilled defenseman while the Sharks are in desperate need of any form of talent.

Scenario #3: Columbus Blue Jackets

Leafs: Patrik Laine, Boone Jenner, 2023 1st Round (22nd overall)
Blue Jackets : Mitch Marner

The intended dynamic duo of Johnny Gaudreau and Patrik Laine hasn't quite met Columbus's high hopes. Marner could pair up with Gaudreau and turn out to be a formidable force.

If he's traded, where do you think Marner will end up?
