Shocking Trade Brewing Between San Jose and Toronto Online

The Toronto Maple Leafs and San Jose Sharks are being discussed as likely trade partners in a deal that's gaining attention online.

Leafs And Sharks Poised as Ideal Trade Match as Hertl Seeks Exit from San Jose

The Toronto Maple Leafs, aiming for the Stanley Cup, are exploring ways to strengthen their team. Enhancing their defense is a priority, but they also need to boost their offense. The San Jose Sharks, in a rebuilding phase, are open to trading their players. Tomas Hertl, particularly, is seeking a new team, and the Leafs could be a suitable destination.

"Tomas Hertl scores a power play goal from Zetterlund's excellent pass, equalizing the game at 2 for San Jose!"

The Sharks aim to offload Hertl, who has 7 years remaining on his contract. A trade with Toronto might involve the Sharks retaining part of his salary. They might also include Ty Emberson, a promising defenseman, to assist the Leafs' defense.

Leafs Might Need to Trade Domi to Acquire Hertl

For the Leafs to afford Hertl, they'd likely need to trade Max Domi. Despite Domi's popularity and his role in boosting their third line, he hasn't scored yet, making Hertl a potential improvement.

If the Sharks agree to a deal sending Hertl and a defenseman to the Leafs for Domi, Toronto might regret not taking the offer due to sentimental reasons.
