Phil might want to start looking for a new roommate.
It looks as if the Leafs aren't quite done working the phones yet. Toronto has already shipped out their three most obvious trade pieces in Cody Franson, Mike Santorelli and Daniel Winnik. And while we've heard some rumblings about the possibility of Roman Polak and Joffrey Lupul being dealt as well, TSN's Bob McKenzie is saying that the New York Rangers could be interested in acquiring Tyler Bozak.
NY Rangers have interest in Tyler Bozak, per @TSNBobMcKenzie . He said it won't be an easy deal to work out.— Neil Greenberg (@ngreenberg) February 26, 2015
The above tweet from the Washington Post's Neil Greenberg is just about the best we can do right now. McKenzie's remarks were aired on NBCSN's NHL Live, and it doesn't look like a clip is available yet. We will update this post if one does surface.

I don't know who's calling the shots In Toronto these days, but whoever it is should keep up the good work.
As you probably already know, the Leafs traded Daniel Winnik to the Pittsburgh Penguins this afternoon in exchange for a 2016 second round pick, a 2015 fourth round pick, and depth forward Zach Sill. In relation to what other second line/third line tweeners have gotten recently, that's a pretty good haul.

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.

This week, TLN will be providing in-depth coverage of the Toronto Maple Leafs as the March 2nd trade deadline approaches. We'll talk who's on the block, who the Leafs should target, and make some bold predictions - like Daniel Winnik will be traded. TLN5.
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.
