The Toronto Maple Leafs have only made two moves so far this offseason that will impact the main roster. The draft-day trade to acquire James van Riemsdyk and the signing of Jay McClement have brought the Leafs at least another top- and bottom-six forward.
The problem is that the Leafs still have not addressed their biggest need in goaltending. A true No. 1 center would be nice as well.
With the free-agent market dying down after not being too good to begin with, the only way to improve the team is via trade.
There has been plenty of speculation as to who the Maple Leafs might acquire. Roberto Luongo, Bobby Ryan, Ryan Getzlaf—almost every big-name player on the market has found his name attached to the Leafs in some way.
The question is what the Leafs would be giving up in a deal. Who among the Leafs is valuable enough to trade but expendable in Toronto's eyes?
Seven players fit the mold from my perspective. Here they are.
