Teams are telling me the Maple Leafs are working hard to trade Phil Kessel and Dion Phaneuf today. #tvasports— Renaud Lavoie (@renlavoietva) March 2, 2015
It seems like the talks around Phaneuf have really been elevated over the last week, with the Wings being thrown out there a few times as potential suitors. TSN's Bob McKenzie indicated yesterday evening that Detroit has had some internal discussions about pursuing the Leafs' Phaneuf and/or Lupul, though the Erik Cole trade obviously takes them out of the picture on Lupul.

According to Renaud Lavoie of TVA, the Edmonton Oilers want to address their goaltending situation and may be looking to Toronto for help. The Leafs have reportedly been listening to offers on Jonathan Bernier, but according to Dreger they aren't exactly shopping the pending restricted free agent, so James Reimer could be in play here as well.
Oilers are looking for goaltenders. They were looking at what the Maple Leafs goalies in the last few weeks. #tvasports— Renaud Lavoie (@renlavoietva) March 1, 2015

In the last 24-hours there has been increasing talk of the Leafs looking to move out Joffrey Lupul before the trade deadline passes next Monday. It's a little surprising, given he's only recently returned from another injury and isn't a rental, but that isn't scaring teams too much, and it appears there's now a real possibility of him being dealt.
Elliotte Friedman joined Sportsnet 960 in Calgary this morning and weighed in on which teams might look to make a pitch for the productive winger.

The Winnipeg Jets have had a strained relationship with Alexander Burmistrov, the organization's 2010 first-round pick, but with some chatter around his potential return to North America, his name is now being tossed around as the trade deadline approaches. With the Leafs and Jets rumored to be connected on a trade involving Daniel Winnik for a while now, Burmistrov could be a target for Toronto as a sort of reclamation project, and it's a move TSN's Darren Dreger believes they would be interested in.

Leafs recall Sam Carrick. Smith is banged up right now.— James Mirtle (@mirtle) February 17, 2015
This will be the third call-up for Carrick, who has already punched in a couple five game stints with the big club in November and January. In ten appearances with the Leafs, he has yet to register a point, albeit playing only 5:17 per night on average.
