Blockbuster Trade Proposal For Blackhawks and Leafs to Send Mitch Marner to Play on Connor Bedard’s Line

Connor Bedard’s signing with the Chicago Blackhawks was ultimately verified during the selection lottery. Chicago owns the first pick, therefore it’s obvious that he’ll be selected first despite the organization’s lack of confirmation…

The question of who he should play with is now anticipated in Chicago as another crucial decision. He won’t have the same effect if he plays alone on the rink as he would if he were paired with a talented player.

On Twitter, a trade suggestion was made in which Mitch Marner would play on Bedard’s line.

“Hear me out:

Chicago Gets:
Mitch Marner
Matt Murray

Toronto Gets:
Drew Commesso
Frank Nazar
Lukas Reichel
19th overall pick.”

The cost to get Marner is significant, as you could have anticipated. To get the superstar, the Hawks would have to give up promising young players and a high draft pick.

With these two players coming from Toronto, Chicago would be in a position to compete as soon as next season.

What’s most exciting about this proposal is seeing Marner alongside Bedard. That would be a dangerous duo every night.

Now, are the Blackhawks ready to pay the price?

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: and let's talk some hockey!
