Kyle Dubas Making A Push For Colton Parayko?

Published July 31, 2018 at 10:45

Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas has his forwards set for the upcoming season, however there's still some big question marks on the blue line. Dubas wasn't able to add anybody to the Leafs defense so far during the offseason and as it stands right now will enter the 2018-19 season with the same group as last year. However, Howard Berger of Between The Posts reports that sources close to him state that Dubas is in contact with the St. Louis Blues. According to Berger, Dubas is trying to land Blues defenseman Colton Parayko. The problem of course is that the Blues would likely demand William Nylander in return, however it doesn't seem that Dubas would be willing to give up the young forward. Instead Berger suggests a package of Andreas Johnsson, Jake Gardiner and more, however despite Berger's proposal, it's highly unlikely that the Blues would accept anything less than Nylander. Even at that, it could take more as the Blues added Ryan O'Reilly, Tyler Bozak, Patrick Maroon and David Perron up front this offseason. If the Blues were to accept Nylander for Parayko one for one would you be willing to make the trade?
