Nick Kypreos revealed that former Maple Leaf and current Nashville Predator Ryan O'Reilly tried to convince Predators GM Barry Trotz to acquire Mitch Marner.

The Nashville Predators have been linked to Mitch Marner since the Leafs' off-season began with Barry Trotz even saying 'they're just rumours' at his end-of-season press conference. However, yesterday, Sportsnet's Nick Kypreos revealed that former Leaf Ryan O'Reilly had been in communication with Trotz trying to convince him to trade for Marner before they spent big in free agency signing Brady Skjei, Steven Stamkos and Jonathan Marchessault.
It is going to be a very long summer for Leaf fans, the Leafs and Marner until a definitive decision is made public by Leafs GM Brad Treliving about the future of Marner.
Entering the final year of his contract, Marner is due to make $10.9M and was paid a $7.25M signing bonus on July 1st, Marner has stated he intends to play out the final season of his deal with the Leafs and that his plan is to be a Leaf long-term.
Unless something drastic changes, the Leafs will be 'running it back' once again with the 'Core Four' one last time before Marner and John Tavares' contracts come off the books.
Although Leaf fans may not be happy about it, the depth on the wings for the Leafs, particularly the left side is not great and trading Marner, unless it is for a considerable return would weaken the Leafs' top-six significantly more as they have already lost Tyler Bertuzzi to the Chicago Blackhawks.
