Report: Maple Leafs willing to listen to offers for Kasperi Kapanen, Nazem Kadri

The Score

The Toronto Maple Leafs are willing to listen to offers for forwards Nazem Kadri and Kasperi Kapanen, according to TSN's Darren Dreger.

The Leafs are asking for a defenseman for Kapanen and a center for Kadri, Dreger adds.

Kadri is a pesky two-way forward with significant offensive upside whose current team-friendly contract carries an annual cap hit of $4.5 million. The 28-year-old – who has three years remaining on his deal – put up back-to-back 32-goal seasons in 2016-17 and 2017-18 and can give a team valuable minutes on the power play.

Kapanen is coming off a breakout sophomore campaign in which he totaled career highs with 20 goals and 44 points. However, the 22-year-old is a restricted free agent who may become a victim of the Leafs' current cap issues.
