Leafs get Saros & Jeannot, Predators get Nylander, plus ?
What would make this trade fair? Nashville has 2 young goalies for the future

I don't think the Preds would be very interested in Nylander and they wouldn't trade those two players for anything else Toronto has.

Not counting Matthews since Toronto wouldn't even considering trading him for anything other than a 1 for 1 for McDavid.

I’d maybe Move Mathews for Makar tbh.

Why do you think they wouldn’t be interested in Nylander? Just because I want a tougher team, it doesn’t mean a team wouldn’t want a young, top 6 forward, on a good contract.

Because the Predators have Forsberg and need to resign him. They aren't going to just let him go so they can take on an inferior player who costs almost as much.

Mind you it sounds like the Predators GM is botching the negotiations with Forsberg. Money isn't the problem either it's the clauses. If Forsberg doesn't resign they might be interested in Nylander to replace him.

Not sure what they'd trade for Nylander but I can't see Saros being part of it and probably not Jeannot either. Still if they don't have Forsberg they'd have the cap space to take on Nylander's contract without having to send a big salary back.

It seems to me that Nashville has 2 solid, young goalies for the future. They could trade Saros and sign a cheap veteran if they want someone with experience in net as well. Maybe it’s not Nylander, but they can use $5 million from Saros to improve elsewhere. Also resign Forsberg, or use that cap for something else. IMO Nashville has more to gain by trading Saros. I wouldn’t trade Jeannot if I was them, that part was me being greedy, lol.
