With Mo there are, in my opinion, four destinations he can go to.
1. Vancouver: he is from Vancouver and probably eventually wants to play out west, Vancouver needs pieces to help support their core of Pettersson, Boeser, Hughes, and Miller. Who better than a puck moving defensemen who is able to jump into the rush at any time and get you 30+ points a season. A trade will probably involve Tyler Motte, Olli Juolevi and a pick or two.
2. Winnipeg: Winnipeg is in need to some tuning up this offseason, they made it to the second round of the playoffs but ran out of steam going into the second round. I think there could be a possibility Winnipeg looks to move Pierre-Luc Dubois. And if that's the case I would like to see Toronto try a Morgan Rielly and near-ready NHL prospect for PLC. I think he can use a change of scenery and adding a Morgan Rielly to the Jets defense can help them out a lot
3. Carolina: It is looking more likely that Dougie could be leaving Carolina this offseason. Their best bet might be a sign-and-trade to re-coop some assets for a player destined to leave. I think Toronto would definitely be interested in a deal here, probably a package surrounding Morgan, Liljgren and a pick. This trade gives Toronto a number one puck moving defensemen and Carolina is able to get a lesser version of Dougie, a prospect with high upside and pick for someone they would've lost for nothing
4. Flyers: If the Flyers feel that this year was not a fluke and they need to make changes, they can look at a guy like Rielly. In this scenario I am assuming Gostisbehere was taken by Seattle in the draft with some assets or was traded away as a cap dump. This trade would look like Rielly, SDA, Kokkonen and an early picked (conditioned if Rielly resigns or not) for Konecny and Hagg
