NHL trade rumors: Maple Leafs listening to offers for Nazem Kadri, Kasperi Kapanen

The Maple Leafs are willing to part with some of their forwards this offseason.

Toronto is telling teams they are willing to listen to trade offers for center Nazem Kadri and winger Kasperi Kapanen, according to TSN.

The team would want to get a defenseman back for Kapanen and a center for Kadri.

Kadri has three years remaining on the six-year, $27 million deal he signed with Toronto in 2016.

The team is trying to save some money, and considering Kadri has been suspended during the playoffs in each of the last two years, the Maple Leafs may not feel bad about parting with that baggage either.

As for Kapanen, the 22-year-old winger was very good last season scoring a career-high 20 goals and 44 points. But his production slowed down after William Nylander returned following a contract holdout.

He scored six goals after the new year and 10 over his final 49 games in the season. He is also a restricted free agent this year and with Toronto’s need to re-sign Mitch Marner, Kapanen looks to be the odd-man out.

TSN also reports 25-year-old winger Connor Brown could go as well.
