The countdown to the March 5 trade deadline is on, and the Toronto Maple Leafs, while not expected to be major players, could end up making some roster changes.
The team's offence has not been an issue. The top three lines have produced for most of the year despite some significant losses to injury and suspension. Depth forwards could be sought, but the most likely target would have to be a top-four rearguard.
There are a number of statistics that support the need to improve defensively, but the most glaring has to be their Corsi team number that is second worst in the league at 42.9 percent according to ExtraSkater.com. Without the excellent play of Jonathan Bernier and, to a lesser degree, James Reimer, the Leafs would not be winners of seven of their last 10 games.
While Toronto is looking to add, there is also a possibility that the team could be moving some players, particularly those with expiring contracts. Let's take a look at some potential trade options for the Leafs.
