Toronto Maple Leafs' President of Hockey Operations Brendan Shanahan revealed if he thinks the Core Four can still win together.

In today's end-of-season media availability, we learned many interesting things related to the Leafs' future. Brendan Shanahan, alongside Brad Treliving, the general manager, talked about their vision for the future of the organization after yet another disappointing first-round elimination.
When they got to the Core Four, Shanahan remained vague, and while they didn't said they would trade either Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner, William Nylander or John Tavares, we could read between the lines that they'll look into trading on of them (and it probably won't be any of the players who signed a contract extension recently).

"Without saying it explicitly, the #leafs leadership/management couldn't have made it more clear reading between the lines that they're going to explore moving one or more members of their core this summer."

Shanahan asked, "Do you believe this core group can win? And if so, why?"
He offers up a word salad, ending in "We have to assess all of those things."

Never used the word "Yes."

Short answer: No, he does not.

That leaves Mitch Marner and John Tavares possibly involved in trade talks. However, it won't be an easy task. They both have no-trade clauses and still earn big salaries.
Do you think a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs' Core Four will be traded this summer?
