Exclusive Insider Reports Reveal Impending Blockbuster Trade Between Carolina Hurricanes and Toronto Maple Leafs

The Toronto Maple Leafs and Carolina Hurricanes’ postseason runs came to an early conclusion. They were both defeated by the Florida Panthers in the second and third rounds, respectively.

They appear to be set up to work together on certain movements over the off-season. Howard Berger posted the following on Twitter:

Even after Shanahan declared that the Leafs’ “Core Four” were safe, rumors continue to circulate regarding them. But when a new General Manager joins, we can never be sure what will happen.

The supposed trade proposal is as follows:

To CAR: Mitch Marner, Roni Hirvonen

To TOR: Martin Necas, Brett Pesce, Alexander Pashin, 1st-round pick in 2023, 2nd-round pick in 2024

The cost of acquiring Marner is obviously enormous. The Canes would have to provide top players and high-caliber picks in order to acquire him.

A return like this should be taken into account, despite the fact that many think the Leafs would be foolish to trade Marner.

Are the Leafs willing to break up the core four and try something new for a change?

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!
