Tyler Bozak is not letting trade rumors bother him.

"When haven't I been (on the block) in the last few years?" Bozak said. "I can't tell you how many years I've been getting told that I'm being traded ... Maybe the first year you hear it, you kind of get nervous. But after it happens for a few years ... I try to block that out in the end and focus on our team." He is on pace for the lowest goals per game of his career and he has earned just 28 points in 57 matches this year. Bozak is eligible for unrestricted free agency this summer.

Tyler Bozak wants to build on his success last season.

Bozak recorded a personal best 55 points (18 goals, 37 assists) in 78 games. "We expect a lot from each other and everyone wants to improve and get better as a team, so we're excited for things to get going," he said. "As athletes, we always expect to improve and play better as individuals and as a team. We expect to be better than we were last year and we expect each guy to take another step forward. We want to win and that's what we expect to do." Bozak is the longest tenured Maple Leafs player (513 games) and there's a chance he could be traded at some points this year.

Tyler Bozak is unlikely to be dealt to the Rangers, according to Larry Brooks of the New York Post.

Brooks speculated earlier this month that the Rangers may be interested in acquiring the Maple Leafs center, but Bozak's $4.2 million cap hit is an issue. New York would need to buy out Marc Staal by Thursday's deadline, but there is "zero indication" that will occur.

Larry Brooks speculated that the Rangers would be in the hunt for Tyler Bozak if he became available on the trade market.

Brooks went on to list defenseman Nick Holden as a piece that could potentially be involved in such a trade on the Rangers' side. It's an interesting speculation and the idea of the Maple Leafs shopping Bozak, now or in the not-so-distant future, can't be dismissed. Bozak is entering the final season of his five-year, $21 million contract and re-signing him could be an issue for the Maple Leafs given that they'll need to keep money open for William Nylander, Auston Matthews, and Mitchell Marner, who will all likely get big contracts once their entry-level deals are up. Toronto's cap situation at the moment is also a bit tenuous. They are technically significantly over the ceiling, but Nathan Horton and Joffrey Lupul will likely go on the LTIR, which will provide Toronto with considerable relief once the season begins.
