Friedman: Leafs taking calls on Tyson Barrie

17 novembre 2019
Sportsnet hockey insider Elliotte Friedman says the Toronto Maple Leafs are taking trade calls dealing with defenseman Tyson Barrie, who was acquired over the offseason in the Nazim Kadri trade.

"He (Barrie) has not asked for a trade, however, I think there is an understanding that so far it hasn’t worked,” Friedman said Saturday night on Hockey Night in Canada.

Barrie, 28, is in the final year of his contract, a four year deal he signed with Colorado in 2016. It carries an AAV of $5.5 million, although Colorado retained part of Barrie's salary in the trade.

This season, Barrie has six assists and is a minus-6. Friedman says the Leafs have rejected the idea of trading him so far, but that may change.

“I do think there’s a recognition that this can’t continue for him,” Friedman said.
