Team Explanation
A competing team does not move a impact player for futures only. IF Toronto makes a move it will not be for picks and non ready prospects. It will be for roster players at the core and prospect/picks to balance.

Sportsnet just did an article on players that could be targeted and there are only a short few I think make sense for both sides.

Here are a few.
Trades
TOR
  1. Manson, Josh
  2. Montour, Brandon
Additional Details:
Montour seems to be the arguable better option, but Manson's productivity and his contract make him very interesting.

There are two main issues here, Ducks cap and the true value of this trade. I hear people arguing what this trade should be and sadly it is not a one for one.
ANA
    TOR
    1. Fleury, Haydn
    2. McKeown, Roland
    3. Pesce, Brett
    4. Bean, Jake
    5. Slavin, Jaccob
    Additional Details:
    This is the team that makes the most sense, they got off to a great start, however it is obvious they could still use what Nylander brings and of course it goes the same for Toronto. The value is unknown again here and yes I realize some of these are not NHL ready. That being said Pesce seems to be the perfect option.

    There is still the value issue, is Nylander for Pesce fair? Does more need to be added to balance?
    CAR
      TOR
      1. Spurgeon, Jared
      2. Dumba, Matt
      Additional Details:
      The more I see people bringing up Mini the more it is making sense, there is a clear need on both sides and a few options for Toronto to look into. Dumba for Nylander one for one makes sense to me, but does it really fix what Toronto is going for. Having an absolute dynamite first pairing of Reilly and Dumba is VERY intriguing. Plus Dumba being cost controlled at 6mill is nice too.
      MIN
        TOR
        1. Ekholm, Mattias
        2. Ellis, Ryan
        3. Subban, P.K.
        Additional Details:
        This is the one I will admit makes no sense. Yes the Preds are very deep on the back end, but they also are not hurting in the front either. Nylander could help their PP but besides that trade doesn't really make sense on the Preds side. Plus the player they would want to move on from is the one we cant afford in PK. This is more so here as a point towards other teams with defensive depth.
        NSH
          TOR
          1. Provorov, Ivan
          2. Sanheim, Travis
          Additional Details:
          This is another one that is brought up often that doesn't make enough sense, Provorov is too valuable and Sanheim not enough. It would be an over pay on either side to make it worth. Its not worth it.
          PHI
            TOR
            1. Pietrangelo, Alex
            2. Edmundson, Joel
            3. Parayko, Colton
            Additional Details:
            This is one that Leaf fans love and no one else. Parayko for Nylander makes sense for a lot of reasons, especially with the Blues horrible start on scoring. I get the kick back, but the value makes sense and it should be done. But I digress.
            STL
              TOR
              1. Byfuglien, Dustin
              2. Trouba, Jacob
              Additional Details:
              I haven't seen Buff brought up once, but goodness I would LOVE him on our team and so would Babs. The Trouba trade makes no sense when you look at the player. He doesn't want Winterpeg and he doesn't want Toronto. People like the comparison when it comes to age and what Trouba could be, but there isn't too much meat there. That being said, Nylander for Buff. Think about it ;)

                It's down to 4 teams interested in trading for Nylander on a long term deal. Otherwise it's an offer sheet or bridge now to trade later.

                Every choice has a consequence now, you can't just talk tough to negotiate -- beggars can't be choosers

                I think that amongst these teams a solid player and a first or second would be ideal for Toronto. A possible prospect would also be helpful. One player who I feel hasn’t gotten any attention as a swing piece is Adam Fox of the canes. He is ranked the 50th best nhl prospect and he could swing a nylander trade with the canes. He has not been officially on contract yet but he will probably get signed. Fox and pesce for nylander would be very ideal for the leafs because you get a possible future first liner and a player on a great contract for the next 5+ years.

                Who is begging? You are the most dramatic person on the planet.

                If Toronto's brain trust is as smart as I think they are, they have a very specific criteria for a defenceman they'd trade Nylander for.

                1) They need to be great skaters
                2) They need to be 25 or under
                3) should cost less than 7 million

                All these fans who are trading a 22 year old with massive upside for 27/28 year olds are so short sighted. Who gives up a guy who will be elite for the next 8-12 years for a guy who's best hockey is likely behind him.

                It's your first season as a Leafs fan; stick to what you know and constructing trades for "Montreal's great depth players"
