Leafs willing to trade JVR
He’s not being shopped but Toronto Maple Leafs forward James van Riemsdyk and his contract is a valuable asset other teams would love to get their hands on.
“The name JVR has been out there the last little while,” said Nick Kypreos on the Headlines segment Saturday. “I can tell you there’s nothing going on in terms of hard offers but teams are asking about him and the Leafs are willing to listen. They know that he wants a long-term deal and that’s a deal that can start negotiations as early as July.
