Today a new post on X has shown proof that a trade between the Calgary Flames and Toronto Maple Leafs for Chris Tanev was almost completed.

The Toronto Maple Leafs were in rumors to acquire Chris Tanev for months leading up to the NHL trade deadline. He was the top defenseman on the market and many were hoping he'd land in Toronto. Today a new post on X showing a pair of gloves in Maple Leafs colors for Chris Tanev show the trade must've been on the verge of happening.

Despite these gloves existing the Toronto Maple Leafs could not land the defensive defenseman. Instead, he went to the Dallas Stars and helped them reach the Western Conference Finals.
WE'VE GOT A TRADE 🤩

Chris Tanev is headed to the @DallasStars as part of a three-way deal with the @NHLFlames and @NJDevils!

While it seems like the Toronto Maple Leafs narrowly missed on landing Chris Tanev it likely would not have mattered anyway. The Maple Leafs were eliminated in round one and seem to have much larger organizational issues. Regardless it would have been fun to see the domino effect of Chris Tanev coming to Toronto.
