The Philadelphia Flyers emerged as the perfect trade destination for Toronto Maple Leafs' Mitch Marner.

It's no secret that the Leafs are looking to make big changes in the organization this summer. After a tough playoff run that saw their star players Auston Matthews and William Nylander miss some games, and Mitch Marner being invisible in others, management determined that important measures must be taken.
A lot of reports suggest that the only players safe in the Leafs' core four are Matthews and Nylander, meaning that Marner and Tavares would be available on the trade market.
Both players are set to become free agents after the next season, and the Leafs could struggle financially to keep them in the team.
But with everything that went down with Marner in the playoffs, it really looks like he'll be the one to be leaving first.
Our colleagues over at Maple Leafs Daily believe that the Philadelphia Flyers would make the perfect trade partners for the Leafs.
Here's what they said in a recent blog:
"A lot of teams in the NHL could use a game-breaking, playmaking, all-situations talent but perhaps none more than the Philadelphia Flyers. Currently in the process of rebuilding, the Flyers were in line to make the post-season for the first time since 2019-20 had it not been for an epic collapse at the end of the season that saw them lose 8 consecutive games and their grasp on the 3rd and final spot in the Metropolitan Division."

The Flyers fell short of a playoff spot by only a few points after a surprising season. With a guy like Marner, their chances of clinching a ticket for next season's playoffs would be much better.
It's widely believed that the Leafs would target a defenseman in a Marner trade. The Flyers are sitting on a few interesting prospects at that position, such as Oliver Bonk, Emil Andrae or Helge Grans, that could interest Brad Treliving.
In order to be able to move Marner's massive $10.9M contract, the Flyers would need to part ways with a big contract, and one that fits that description would be Travis Konecny's.
To sum up, the Leafs could send Marner to Philadelphia for Konecny as well as a prominent defensive prospect, such as Oliver Bonk, Emil Andrae or Helge Grans.
