We continue our Maple Leafs Trade Deadline coverage today with TLN's list of players that could or should be targeted by Toronto as March 2nd nears. I've come up with a list of players likely to be of interest to the Leafs, based on current rumours, availability, age, skill, contract situation... basically anyone who could be seen as a "fit".
It's a difficult list to come up with, seeing as most of us at TLN have our hearts set on picks and prospects, but as soon-to-be-traded Joffrey Lupul tells us, somebody's gotta play. Here are three players that could, should, or probably will be targeted by the Leafs in the next week.

Today, we'll talk inventory. What kind of assets do the Leafs exactly have? What do they need? Follow the jump for the full breakdown...

Every tank has its day.
The Toronto Maple Leafs got back into the win column tonight, downing the WInnipeg Jets in overtime by a score of 4-3. While many of us are fully on board with tanking out the rest of the season in hopes of the highest draft pick possible, I'm glad some 8-year old hockey fan who doesn't understand tank jobs got to stay up late and see a Leafs victory.

The last time the Toronto Maple Leafs and Winnipeg Jets faced off, Dustin Byfuglien was a one-man wrecking crew; the kind of force that could stop a tank in its tracks, rough it up, and after 60 minutes or so let that tank roll along its happy merry way. Byfuglien had a goal, an assist, laid a bunch of people out flat, and the Jets won by a lopsided score of 5-1.
Tonight, the Jets will move Byfuglien up to forward... Byfuglien on the forecheck gives me nightmares.

So. Much. Leafs. Trade. Talk.
Darren Dreger of TSN has updated his now infamous Leafs Trade Board, with Daniel Winnik being a slam dunk 100% to be dealt before the deadline. Korbinian Holzer follows at 85%, while Tyler Bozak and Joffrey Lupul both clock in at a 60% chance at being dealt. Roman Polak, who's had his name circulate quite a bit through trade chatter lately, is only a 40%.
