NHL insider Chris Johnston reports the Toronto Maple Leafs are receiving calls on Mitch Marner. Is a blockbuster trade in the works? Get the latest Leafs rumors here.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are reportedly receiving calls on star winger Mitch Marner, according to NHL insider Chris Johnston.

Johnston, appearing on TSN Radio 1050, revealed that multiple teams have expressed interest in acquiring the 26-year-old forward.

While the Leafs are not actively shopping Marner, Johnston suggests that if the right offer presents itself, the organization would approach Marner about a potential trade. This news has ignited speculation and debate among Leafs fans and hockey analysts alike.

Marner, a two-time 90-point scorer and Selke Trophy finalist, is undeniably one of the league’s most dynamic offensive talents. However, his hefty $10.9 million annual salary cap hit has raised eyebrows, especially considering the Leafs’ tight cap situation.

Johnston believes the Leafs may ultimately decide to retain Marner, opting to maintain their current core for another season. This approach would allow them to address their cap constraints more effectively next offseason when John Tavares’ $11 million cap hit expires.

The potential trade of Mitch Marner would undoubtedly be a seismic shift in the NHL landscape. It remains to be seen whether these rumors will materialize into a blockbuster deal or simply fade away as the offseason progresses.
