The Carolina Hurricanes made a trade with the Toronto Maple Leafs last off-season that has certainly been paying dividends since then. Carolina took on the $6.25 million cap hit of Patrick Marleau in exchange for a 1st round pick (13th overall) in the 2020 NHL entry draft, and a 7th round pick in the NHL entry draft, giving up a 6th round pick in the same draft.
