Quick hit hereNot a whole lot of info regarding the possible destinationsbut I was told this weekend there could be a deal in place.with either Toronto or Boston..outside chance of the Islanders.


I am told the Sabres are looking elsewheremore as I get it.

This is the first we have heard that the Maple Leafs are a potential finalist for Noah Hanifin. Now that the Maple Leafs are known to be serious what could a trade package look like?

Can The Maple Leafs Afford To Snag Hanifin?



The Maple Leafs were originally rumored to be in on Nikita Zadorov and Chris Tanev. Now with Zadorov off to Vancouver, it seems the team has pivoted to Hanifin. The Zadorov deal could provide useful still when predicting a trade return needed to land Hanifin.

Zadorov was sent to Vancouver for a 3rd and a 5th-round pick in upcoming drafts.

The @Canucks pick up the blueliner in a swap with the @NHLFlames.


With Hanifin being two years younger and possessing more offensive upside the price will likely be higher. With the Maple Leafs' lack of high-end picks in upcoming drafts a top prospect or two will likely need to be sacrificed to bring in Hanifin.

With this asking price is Noah Hanifin worth trading for?
