Rumors Swirl About Connor McDavid Considering a Move to Toronto

There are crrently rumours of Connor McDavid contemplating a move to the Toronto Maple Leafs for the upcoming 2026-27 season, hinting at a major shift in the league's power dynamics.

A few months ago, McDavid was asked about his favorite teams to watch aside from the Oilers:


"I could feel that a little bit. It's fun. It's fun to play in Toronto. You know, obviously, I'm a little bit biased. I'm a Toronto kid. But I strongly consider Toronto to be kind of the Mecca of hockey. I really do. Just with all the media and the fans and, obviously, the history of the Leafs. So I like watching Pittsburgh for obvious reasons. And I'm probably going to get in trouble for saying this (chuckles) but I like watching the Leafs just with all the talent they have. Those are probably my top two."


The Maple Leafs currently find themselves at a crucial juncture, grappling with the challenge of re-signing William Nylander. However, the anticipated salary cap relief when John Tavares' contract expires in 2025-26 presents a great opportunity for Toronto, freeing up over $11 million.

Known for their proactive pursuit of elite talent, the Leafs could seize this moment by making a compelling contract offer to McDavid. The addition of McDavid, a generational talent, to a roster already featuring Auston Matthews would be a monumental acquisition.


If this scenario were to materialize, seeing Matthews and McDavid as the Leafs' top centers would create an unparalleled offensive tandem at the core of their lineup. Such a potential roster configuration positions Toronto as a formidable contender in the NHL, making them a team to watch out for.
