Nick Robertson trade package for Jakob Chychrun
Will Nick Robertson be part of a trade package for Jakob Chychrun?

Could a Jakob Chychrun for Nick Robertson trade be in the works? There is NHL trade rumor chatter that this could be in the works.

If the Toronto Maple Leafs want to be serious Stanley Cup contenders, they will have to give up a top notch prospect to land a legit top-4 defenceman in Chychrun.

What is the latest on Jakob Chychrun

He is set to come off LTIR. He has been out since last season from an ankle injury but is fully healed and ready to be traded.

The asking price from the Coyotes is two 1st round pick’s, and a top prospect. They will also take a bad contract back in a Chychrun trade.

If the Leafs wants Chychrun, it will cost them Nick Robertson

Elliotte Friedman was on Sportsnet Radio and stated that once Jakob Chychrun is back in the Arizona Coyotes lineup, a trade will happen quick, he will not be a NHL trade deadline deal.

Michael Traikos of the Toronto Sun reports that now is the perfect time to make a Chychrun trade for the Leafs and sell high on Nick Robertson.

Traikos believes Robertson should be part of a trade package for Jakob Cychrun. The Toronto Maple Leafs don’t need another elite scorer, they have plenty of those, what they need is a solid top-four defenseman like Chychrun to take the pressure off Morgan Rielly and T.J. Brodie.

What will it cost the Leafs to make a Jakob Chychrun trade?

The Leafs have the pieces to get a trade done. If Robertson can maintain a high level of play over the next 5 games or so, Traikos believes if the Leafs offer up Nick Robertson and their 2023 first round pick a deal can get done.

If the Leafs feel they need to dump salary just in case Jake Muzzin comes back this year, they will have to ship out Alex Kerfoot as part of the package and part with another top prospect like a Matthew Knies to complete a deal.

It should be an interesting next few weeks to see what happen with the Leafs and Arizona.

The Leafs will have competition in landing Cychrun as the Senators, Kings, Oilers, Blue Jackets and Blues also have interest in a Jakob Chychrun trade.
