NHL trade rumors for January 14, 2022 have the New Jersey Devils looking to trade P.K. Subban and will the Leafs be interested in a trade?

As we slowly approach the 2022 NHL trade deadline, more rumors are starting to pop up and the latest NHL trade rumors for January 14, 2022 have the New Jersey Devils looking to trade P.K. Subban.

The Fourth Period reports if the New Jersey Devils are out of the playoff picture by the trade deadline, they will look at a P.K. Subban trade. (The Devils sit 11 points back of the Boston Bruins who own the last playoff spot and the Bruins have three games in hand.)

The one team that could have interest if they can make the cap hit work is the Toronto Maple Leafs. He is a home town boy and the Leafs are looking to upgrade the Justin Holl spot.

Subban does carry a $9 million salary cap hit, even if the Devils retained half his deal in a Leafs trade, moving him might be a challenge if New Jersey’s price tag is too high.

Subban is in the final year of his current contract and does not own a no-trade clause so he can be traded to any playoff contending team.

  1. Forgot all about Mr Subban !!!
    PK might be reborn coming to Toronto..
    Certainly a colourful player, I think he thrives on the limelight .
    Toronto might even be able to re- sign him if he performs to a level of certainty …
    The price going back to Jersey might be affordable , other than the dreaded cap , which I am sure can be figured out …
    Leafs are DESPERATE , too many blown leads, weak on the blue line .
    They almost need 2 defenseman IMO
    Chiarot and Subban ,
    Unfortunately , I just don’t think Dubais has the hockey IQ to get it done ?
    Muzzin has looked out of place this year , ERROR prone !!’ Not Good
    Another 1st round exit , could be the end of the Dubais era ?!?!
