There's some intriguing speculations around Toronto's interest in Flyers forward Scott Laughton.

According to David Pagnotta, the Leafs might just pull out all the stops to reel him in over the summer.

Laughton is highly sought after this season, with many teams wanting to trade for him. The Flyers have already turned down a tempting offer of a first-round pick for him.

As we look ahead to the summer, the Leafs might be facing the prospect of saying goodbye to one of their key contributors - Michael Bunting - to free agency. But here's the silver lining: Laughton might just be the perfect candidate to fill Bunting's shoes.

To sweeten the pot for the Flyers, the Leafs would probably need to add some more weight to their offer. They could bundle their first-round pick in this year's draft with a promising prospect or a current roster player. A trio deal including Nick Robertson, Victor Mete, and the Leafs' first-round pick (originally Boston's property) could be a potential package.
