3 Toronto Maple Leafs Who Won't Be Traded During 2023 Offseason

The Toronto Maple Leafs introduced Brad Treliving as their new general manager and now the veteran executive will get to work. The roster has a ton of question marks as there's several pending free agents who are in need of contracts and the trade winds have been blowing of late. While there's going to be a trade or two out of Toronto this summer, don't expect to see these three players moved:

Auston Matthews

Enough is enough, the Matthews trade rumors need to be put to rest. He isn't going anywhere. Matthews loves being a Maple Leaf and is a huge study of the history of hockey in Toronto. His legacy means a lot to him and he's going to re-sign another extension to stay with the hockey club. Treliving and Matthews have already chatted and there's a meeting coming in Arizona next week. 

Mitch Marner

Another core piece for the Maple Leafs, Mitch Marner isn't getting traded. Treliving made it clear this team will be about more than four players moving forward, but that doesn't mean he's going to jump the gun and try and move any of them. It's the complimentary pieces that will be changing in Toronto and Marner, like Matthews, is a legacy player and is likely staying a Maple Leaf for the foreseeable future.

John Tavares

Yes, William Nylander is the most likely of any of the core four to move, but that doesn't mean it will happen. What else isn't going to happen is John Tavares being moved. He has zero interest waiving his no-movement clause and don't expect to see the Maple Leafs asking anytime soon. Yes, his contract isn't the best, but Tavares produces with the best of them, recording 80 points in 80 games next season. If you're thinking Leafs trades this summer, think Matt Murray and TJ Brodie.
