As the March 8th trade deadline looms closer, the Toronto Maple Leafs remain fixed on acquiring Calgary's Chris Tanev, and his expiring $4.5 million cap hit to bolster their blueline. However, the Leafs' shopping list extends beyond Tanev's name alone.

Exploring Toronto Maple Leafs' Trade Deadline Targets:



According to NHL Insider David Pagnotta of The Fourth Period, several forwards have emerged on the Leafs' radar. In his latest Trade Watch List article, Pagnotta suggests that Anthony Duclair of the San Jose Sharks, Colton Parayko of the ST Louis Blues, Jordan Eberle of the Seattle Kraken, and Joel Edmundson of the Washington Capitals are among the players linked to the Leafs.

Additionally, Pagnotta notes ongoing interest in previously mentioned players like Scott Laughton, Sean Walker, Rasmus Ristolainen, Ilya Lyubushkin of the Anaheim Ducks, and David Savard of the Montreal Canadiens.

Adding to the intrigue, General Manager Brad Treliving was spotted in Buffalo alongside a Leafs scout, fueling speculation about potential targets like Parayko.

Recent insights from TSN's Pierre LeBrun and Mike Johnson echo the sentiment that the Leafs' needs extend beyond a single acquisition. LeBrun suggests the Leafs require two defensemen and a top-9 forward.

He's right in the slot with that take, and it's a shot management must take if they're to contend for a Stanley Cup this season.
