3 Toronto Maple Leafs Offseason Trade Candidates

The Toronto Maple Leafs have named Brad Treliving as their new general manager and now the fun begins. Treliving is no stranger to making a bold trade or two and once he assesses his options, look for the veteran executive to make some changes to the Maple Leafs roster. Here's three players from Toronto who should be considered prime trade candidates:

Matt Murray

The Leafs have to sign Ilya Samsonov, which appears very likely considering he's a restricted free agent and Toronto also has youngster Joseph Woll signed for two more seasons at a very reasonable cap hit of $766,667. Then there's veteran Matt Murray, who is signed for one more year at $4.68 million against the Leafs' books. Look for Murray to be dangled at the draft, ahead of the buy out window. The San Jose Sharks or Detroit Red Wings could be an option for the two-time Stanley Cup champion. Regardless of where, Murray won't be playing in Toronto next season.

TJ Brodie

Brodie and Treliving have a little bit of a past with their time together in Calgary. The soon-to-be 33-year-old defenseman slowed down a ton last season, especially during the playoffs. With only one season left, the Leafs could try and move on from Brodie's $5 million cap hit and refresh their back end.  Because of his steady defensive play, there should be a market for the veteran blueliner.

William Nylander

While it does appear none of the core pieces in Toronto will be moved as the team president called each individually to calm the waters, IF any of the big four move, it will be William Nylander. His no-trade kicks in July 1, however it's just a modified 10-team clause, as appose to the no-movement clauses of Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner. Regardless, don't expect to see any of the big stars moved and look for Brodie or Murray to be shipped out in Toronto this summer.
