The Toronto Maple Leafs and the Los Angeles Kings have had preliminary discussions to send Patrick Marleau to the Kings
Hearing the Leafs and Kings have talked about a potential Patrick Marleau trade. Obviously there’s the Todd McLellan connection there for Marleau so he might waive. But as of now I don’t think the two teams have found a fit. Kings would need to unload a contract or two as well…

- According to TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun, the Toronto Maple Leafs discussed a potential Patrick Marleau trade with the Los Angeles Kings, but as of now there does not appear to be a fit.
- The Toronto Maple Leafs are looking to create some cap space.
- According to the latest NHL trade rumors, the Leafs could move Patrick Marleau.
- In fact, they’re having discussions with the Los Angeles Kings.
- If the Kings have to shed salary to make a Patrick Marleau trade work, then perhaps a package coming back to Toronto May include Alec Martinez and Kyle Clifford.
- Both combine for roughly $5.6 million in cap space, whereas Marleau makes $6.25 million for next season.
- That wouldn’t make the Kings any younger that’s for sure.
