With the latest information revealed regarding the negotiations for a contract extension for William Nylander in Toronto, everything indicates that it smells like the end between the two parties.

The Swedish forward would demand a salary approaching $10 million annually, which is considered far too much by the team management.

Given that Nylander will become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the next season, many rumors are circulating that the Maple Leafs would shop around his services.

In connection with a possible upcoming transaction for the 27-year-old player, a trade proposal has surfaced and this one seems very interesting to us for both teams.


With the recent emergence of the Seattle Kraken, who tasted the second playoff round in their second season in the NHL, the organization could be interested in trying a big shot to improve the offense of its roster.

Here is the trade proposal between the Leafs and the Kraken:

TO TORONTO:

Shane Wright
Adam Larsson
Kraken's 1st round pick

TO SEATTLE:

William Nylander
T.J. Brodie

The result leaves no one indifferent, as both teams could get something interesting for their respective organization.

In my opinion, instead of the Kraken's first round pick, if I were the GM of Toronto, I would demand to receive forward Eeli Tolvanen, who could potentially take the place left vacant by Nylander with the Leafs, and he commands a minimal salary of $1.45 million for the next season.

In the end, the Kraken would get their hands on an 80-point scorer, and the Leafs would add a defensive defenseman, a young versatile forward, as well as a high-quality prospect.
