Blockbuster trade proposal that sends Mitch Marner to the Blackhawks

Published May 16, 2023 at 10:40 PM

The NHL draft lottery has just confirmed what we've all been expecting: Connor Bedard is set to join the Chicago Blackhawks. Although the organization has not officially confirmed their first pick, the signs are clear that Bedard is their choice.

With Bedard's arrival, another significant decision looms in Chicago: who will be his linemate? His impact on the ice could be greatly amplified if paired with another talented player.

A potential trade proposal that surfaced on Twitter suggests bringing Mitch Marner on board to play alongside Bedard.

The tweet proposed:

"Consider this:

Chicago Receives:
Mitch Marner
Matt Murray

Toronto Receives:
Drew Commesso
Frank Nazar
Lukas Reichel
19th overall pick."

As expected, the cost of acquiring a player of Marner's stature is steep. The Blackhawks would have to surrender top prospects as well as a high draft pick to secure the superstar's services.

This potential pairing could be game-changing. With Matt Murray guarding the net, Chicago would be well-positioned to contend for the Stanley Cup.

What are your thoughts on this prospective duo? Would you be excited to see Marner and Bedard team up?
