Nick Kypreos was on Toronto’s local radio station, the Fan 590 and stated, that the Toronto Maple Leafs are one of the teams with serious interest in Chychrun.
Kypreos went on to say, if you make a Chychrun trade, you get him for four more years at a $4.6 million cap hit. Comparable defenceman are now making between $8-$9 million a year.
Kypreos finished with saying it would likely take four pieces to make the Chychrun trade which would be a roster player, top prospect, a first round pick and second round pick.
If you are the Leafs and serious about a Stanley Cup run over the next few years, you would think GM Kyle Dubas would have to seriously look at a trade of this magnitude. They would just have to make the salary work.
