When it comes to offseason changes the Toronto Maple Leafs are one of the most talked about teams. Even though teams like the Vegas Golden Knights, Pittsburgh Penguins, Nashville Predators and Tampa Bay Lightning have less cap space than the Leafs this summer, the Leafs' offseason moves are the most talked about across the league. It's pretty much confirmed that Patrick Marleau and Nikita Zaitsev are on their way out of town and there's some speculation about Nazem Kadri. However according to Craig Custance of The Athletic it's another Leafs' forward who's the most likely to be moved. Custance put together his list of the Top 20 NHL trade candidates and Leafs' forward Connor Brown finds himself at #10 on the list ahead of Marleau and Zaitsev.The 25 year old Brown hasn't been able to replicate his 20 goal season from 2016-17 and is in the final year of his deal which will see him carry a $2.1million cap hit before he's arbitration eligible during the summer of 2020. What kind of a return do you think the Leafs can get for Brown?
