Asking price for Jakob Chychrun from the Toronto Maple Leafs REVEALED

Published October 3, 2022 at 3:03 PM

One of the biggest names available in the trade market this offseason has been Arizona Coyotes defenceman Jakob Chychrun. He has expressed on multiple occasions his desire to be traded to a contender, and the Coyotes have agreed to trade him, but they will not trade him away cheap.

Chychrun is a top 4 defenceman who can put up quite a few points on the back end, including a season where he scored 18 goals and 41 points in only 56 games, as a member of the Coyotes as that!

What makes Chychrun so valuable is not only his skill level, but his contract as well. For a team like the Toronto Maple Leafs who are seriously lacking in cap space, Chychrun's contract is for 3 more seasons at a very team friendly deal of $4,600,000.

It has been rumoured that now the Coyotes are even willing to take a salary dump in return for Chychrun now, so they can receive the payment they are seeking.

An NHL insider has recently stated what it will take to land Chychrun for the Maple Leafs, and it's a big price to pay:

1st round pick in 2023
One of Rasmus Sandin/Timothy Liljegren/Topi Niemela
One of Matthew Knies/Nick Robertson

While this is a huge ask for the Maple Leafs, the one benefit is if they can swing the deal without giving up anything off their current roster, it would be a huge plus. The Coyotes are seeking prospects that the Leafs would prefer not to give up, but if the team believed they were a cup contender last year and they have the opportunity to add someone like Chychrun and not give up a roster player, it would be a huge plus for the team, especially a team seriously lacking defence.
