According to insider Elliotte Friedman, Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Seth Jones has been linked to the Toronto Maple Leafs who are desperate to make changes to their roster this offseason.

Less than 48 hours since the Toronto Maple Leafs season ended, rumors are already swirling about potential changes, particularly regarding the breakup of the Core Four. One name in the mix is Seth Jones of the Chicago Blackhawks, as suggested by NHL Insider Elliotte Friedman on the latest episode of the '32 Thoughts' podcast.

Elliotte Friedman mentioned on the latest episode of '32 Thoughts' that he wonders if #Blackhawks    D Seth Jones could be a potential #LeafsForever    trade target if they decide to make major changes. Not an analytical darling, but this would be an interesting addition.




Jones had a challenging season after signing a max-term extension with the Blackhawks, but he bounced back this year. However, the key question remains: would the Maple Leafs be willing to take the risk that Jones can maintain his productivity over the remaining six years of his contract?


With a cap hit of $9.5 million per season for the next six years, Jones's contract represents significant financial commitment. While it would result in some savings compared to Mitch Marner's contract, it also poses potential long-term challenges.
