Nick Robertson says he won't re-sign with the Leafs, but his decision could help the Leafs land disgruntled Winnipeg Jets prospect Rutger McGroarty.

The Jets have seemingly had a hard time keeping their young talent in Winnipeg. First, it was Patrik Laine that wanted out, then it was the man he was traded for in Pierre-Luc Dubois who requested a trade. Now, the 14th overall pick in the 2022 draft, Rutger McGroarty, is not happy with his development plan.
With two unhappy players that seemingly want a change of scenery, the Leafs and Jets could solve both their problems with a trade.
A recent rumour suggested that the Leafs could package Robertson and a draft pick/prospect together in exchange for McGroarty. Robertson would get the fresh start and opportunity he is looking for in Winnipeg, while McGroarty could follow in Matthew Knies' footsteps and join the Leafs at the end of the NCAA season. McGroarty would also add a high-end prospect to a fairly modest prospect pool which is something the Leafs need if they are looking to remain as competitive as possible with Auston Matthews and William Nylander locked in for at least the next four seasons.
Last season at University of Michigan, McGroarty had 16 goals 52 points in 36 games while Robertson had 14 goals and 27 points in 56 games for the Leafs.
