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.

LGD - Tanks Vs. Jets

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.
