Trade rumors that make sense.

Honestly, I couldn’t find any.  Emotions mess with your brain, so some of the rumors out there are just a joke.  It’s also too early for trade rumors as the playoffs are still in full swing.  I will note a few players that might be available, and that I think the Leafs should at least inquire about.  Call this my wish list.

Marc-Andre Fleury, G – He has one more year at a 7 million dollar cap hit, so Vegas would have to eat 50% just to take the phone call, but is there a better goalie in the game right now?  Even at 37, he’s just such a gamer, and an absolute game-changer in net.  He probably wins the Vezna this year.  Campbell splitting time with Fleury, learning from him, could make up the best duo in the league.

Marcus Foligno, F – Why not?  Maybe we can have both brothers bangin’ n’ crashin’ like maniacs.  Seriously though, the Wild have some tough choices to make before the expansion draft.  It’s possible a good forward becomes available.  Foligno is a good forward and is signed at 3.1 million for 3 more years.  Maybe the Wild take Engvall in the deal to offset some salary.

Sam Reinhart, F – A productive offensive player that apparently can also play center.  Does he want out of Buffalo?  He’s an RFA coming off a 5.2 million dollar deal.  He’s 25 years old.  Did I mention that he can play center?  Dubas should be calling about this guy.  All GM’s want to make trades with Kevyn Adams.

Conor Garland, F – The Toronto Maple Leafs were asking about this guy at the deadline.  He’s a RFA who is coming off of his ELC, and he’s going to get paid.  The Coyotes don’t have any money.  Is there a blockbuster in there somewhere?  Garland is worth the swing if you’re taking a swing…just saying.  I bet Dubas calls Bill Armstrong again.
