NHL Trade Scenarios: Staal, Nash, Ryan or Parise to the Toronto Maple Leafs?

It seems that at one time or another, every star player in the NHL has been rumored to be coming to Toronto. Every week, it’s someone new. Rumors started by respected hockey analysts are blown way out of proportion, and soon, Twitter is blowing up with potential trade scenarios that would bring another city’s star player to the Leafs.

While it’s not usually recommended that you read too much into all of the outlandish rumors you hear on Twitter, I believe that this time things may be different.

The Leafs are on a bit of a losing skid, going 4-6-2 in their last 12 games. It would be a shame to see their stellar start to the season go to waste, and I for one believe that Leafs president and general manager Brian Burke will not let this happen.

With Ron Wilson seemingly here to stay, it is my belief that Burke will in fact make a blockbuster trade and acquire one of Eric Staal, Rick Nash, Bobby Ryan or Zach Parise before the NHL’s Feb. 27 trade deadline.
