Here is a move that I would be in favour of Toronto making this offseason:

Trade 1:
Connor Carrick (D - Restricted Free Agent) + Jeremy Bracco (RW - ELC) + 2018 1st Round Selection + 2018 3rd Round Selection to the Winnipeg Jets in exchange for Tyler Myers (D - 5.5 Million x 1 Year) + 2018 2nd Round Selection.

Why for Toronto?
- Fills a need on defence, a smart, physical right-shot dman who isn't going to put up a ton of points, but will be a strong force on the PP/ PK.

Why for Winnipeg?
- Acquires a decent prospect who turned it on in the second half of his rookie AHL season, and also shed valuable cap. Myers is currently Winnipeg's fourth best dman, and to pay him 5.5 Million is steep, and he will almost certainly be let go of after 2018/ 19. They acquire a stopgap #6 dman in replacement, and upgrade to a first round draft pick.

That isn't enough for Myers.
And a 2nd? Lol.

Don’t think jets send a 2nd back. Either just Myers or if you think a pick is necessary, probably a later one. But not bad.

Winnipeg is in the conference final and are a good defensive team and he’s part of it, I doubt Winnipeg would trade him without a roster replacement because Carrick isn’t going to make the jets roster especially when he can Barely even make the leafs roster who are desperate for right handed Dman, and Winnipeg is loaded at forwards so Bracco wouldn’t make the team so I see no value from Toronto to entice Winnipeg so Winnipeg says no.

Really @yup?
So they’d keep Myers and probably lose him next summer for nothing? A 1st, a former 2nd Round Pick for a guy who is a #4 on his team at a pretty hefty contract for such a role? I mean, right now, he's the #5, behind even Toby Enstrom, and I’d assume Enstrom stays to play alongside Buff. So, their top six is Buff/ Enstrom, Trouba/ Morissey, and Myers/ Chiarot. ANd they have Poolman and Morrow, and if they get Carrick back, there's another extra dman. Myers obv, has more potential than such, but with a hefty contract and being deep down on the Jets depth chart, I don't think his value is as high as you think.

And @UBJ
Id agree, i was a bit pushy w the second, but i'd say a 4th or 5th may be more fair.

Idk. I feel as though Winnipeg would survive without Myers, especially considering they need more cap space to resign Wheeler and Laine to pretty hefty raises. Myers’ cap will be removed for that.

Myers contract is already removed in time to resign Wheeler and Laine. You just stated why Carrick doesn't add value to them he doesn't crack their team. There are enough teams looking for RHD I think theyd be able to find a deal giving them legit prospects that fit their plan better. Knocking the 2nd down to a 5th would make it more enticing though.

Myers contract isn’t terrible. But with how many good D they have, it’s expensive for where he is used. But I agree with JBS that Enough teams would be interested to drive up the price a bit.

It would take more than this package to get Myers, who would be the Leafs second best d-man, from the Jets. Winnipeg wouldn't want or need Carrick or Bracco but the 1st rounder and a top prospect might swing a deal.
