REPORT: Toronto Maple Leafs interested in TRADE with Vancouver Canucks - Fans are NOT happy

The Toronto Maple Leafs have more pressure on then this season that possibly any other team. They haven't won a playoff series since 2004, and winning a round this season could be crucial for multiple reasons.

Kyle Dubas is on the final year of his contract and discussions for an extension have not been made apparently, which lack of playoff success is definitely a big factor.

Also with Auston Matthews only having one more year on his contract after this season, the Maple Leafs need to have some success to make him stick around.

The Maple Leafs are having a very good season so far, but their defensive core could always use improvements, especially on the right side. It's being reported that the Maple Leafs are interested in possibly trading with the Vancouver Canucks.


Sounds like the Toronto Maple Leafs have some interest in Tyler Myers from the Canucks. We'll see where it goes but the two sides have talked this week.
@TheFourthPeriod mentioned on @NHLNetwork earlier today.



Myers is a former first round pick by the Buffalo Sabres, and Calder trophy winner as the leagues best rookie. The now 33 year old isn't the offensive player he once was, but he still provides some great defensive plays and is a monster on the penalty kill due to his size.


Toronto Maple Leaf fans have not responded well to this announcement:
