Toronto Maple Leafs Trade Rumors: 7 Players Who Should Be on Their Radar

As the 2011 season comes to a close, NHL teams will be finishing up their final touches before what looks to be an eventful NHL Draft this year.

This year more than in years past, you will likely see plenty of movement on the trade front, as this years draft class is relatively even after the top 12 picks or so. Anywhere from 12 to 50 you can likely get the same type of player.

The Leafs will be looking to do a number of moves, as they've got some holes that they need addressed before the 2011-12 season begins.

Brian Burke has already told media that one move on his agenda is to acquire a No.1 center. Another move that I believe will be discussed is to acquire a top-three defenseman to help lessen the load on a very young and inexperienced defensive core.

Lastly, the Leafs who pick 25th and either 29th or 30th, are looking to trade up and have a few players on their shopping list.

Players like Mark McNeill, Ryan Strome, Matthew Puempel and Jameison Oleksiak have all drawn interest from the Leafs scouts and GM's alike.
