Nick Robertson's career has been marred by injuries, which has led to questions about his potential. Now, it seems that a change of scenery might be in the cards, with an intriguing proposal on the table.

Robertson's Potential Move to Seattle



In this proposed trade scenario, the Toronto Maple Leafs would not only part ways with Nick Robertson but also make an upgrade in their defensive lineup, saying goodbye to TJ Brodie.

TJ Brodie has undoubtedly been a valuable asset for the Leafs, but with just one year remaining on his contract at a salary of $5 million per year, it might be time for a change. The plan is to replace him with the imposing 6'7" defenseman and Toronto native, Jamie Oleksiak, who is locked in at $4.6 million annually for the next three seasons.

As part of the deal, the Maple Leafs would also regain their third-round pick that they had traded away in the Mark Giordano deal. This would provide them with the flexibility to potentially use that pick in whichever fashion they choose, whether that is in another trade, picking with it, or even using it in an offer sheet.

The question now stands: Who do you believe would come out on top in this trade?
