The Detroit Red Wings want to be a playoff contender next season and in order to do that they need some scoring punch.
With NHL trade rumors floating around that the Toronto Maple Leafs are looking to break up their core four, Red Wings GM Steve Yzerman could be calling the Leafs about who is available?
William Nylander for Moritz Seider trade in the works?
Detroit Red Wings beat reporter Ansar Khan states the Detroit Red Wings need offense if they want to make the big show next season and the Toronto Maple Leafs are the team Red Wings management should work with to acquire an offensive asset.
It is believed that William Nylander is the most likely of the Leafs to be traded and Khan reports if the Red Wings want him, the Leafs will be asking for Moritz Seider.
Nylander is coming off a career year with 87 points (40g, 47a) and is under contract for one more year at an affordable $6.9 million Leafs salary cap hit.
If Seider is off the table, the Leafs would want Detroit’s 2023 first round pick, which is the #9 overall selection. If you want something good, you have to give up something good.
