Good morning TLNers! It's the biggest trade day on the NHL calendar, and while Toronto has already completed a number of deals (Dion Phaneuf, James Reimer, Daniel Winnik, Roman Polak, Shawn Matthias, Nick Spaling... holy hell, that's a lot of trades), there's still a couple expected to drop today. Hell, Toronto might be the most active team in the NHL today even after their busy February.
Here are all the latest rumours surrounding the team, and what we expect to go down before the 3:00pm trade deadline...

I hope you weren't sleeping, because the Toronto Maple Leafs' front office sure isn't.
The Leafs have traded Daniel Winnik and Anaheim's fifth-round pick in 2016 to the Washington Capitals in exchange for Brooks Laich, Washington's second-round pick in 2016 and prospect Connor Carrick.

Toronto might have a suitor for their largest remaining trade chip. According to TSN's Gary Lawless, the New York Islanders are interested in bringing P.A. Parenteau to Brooklyn, but are trying to negotiate a lower price.
Lawless says that Toronto's asking price for Parenteau is a second round pick. The Islanders don't own their 2016 second round selection, having dealt it to Boston two years ago for Johnny Boychuk, but they do own their 2017 second rounder.

It's a minor move that could set the table for something bigger over the next 24ish hours; the Toronto Maple Leafs have sent Colin Greening to the AHL.
In eight games with Toronto since arriving from Ottawa in the Dion Phaneuf trade, Greening has scored a goal and added two assists. Those certainly aren't eye-popping numbers, but his even strength 62.5 CF% rating tells us he's consistently pushing the play in the proper direction.
So why the demotion? There are a couple possible reasons...
