The Toronto Maple leafs are off to a somewhat rocky start this season with a 2-3 record after five games. The start is ominous in the fact that the Leafs are 0-2 on home ice and have blown two-goal leads in the last two outings.
Trade speculation is always rampant in Toronto and this roster needs upgrades in many key areas if the Leafs hope to take a step forward this year. The talk has already started regarding players that the Leafs should move, with Phil Kessel being the first man mentioned (by Damien Cox of the Toronto Star) as a candidate to move before the end of the season.
Considering factors such as contract status, roster strengths and weaknesses and who the team could get in return, here are the five Maple Leafs likeliest to be traded this season.
