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.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have now cleared the decks of their high-profile rental players. Are bigger moves now in the offing?
On Wednesday, the Maple Leafs dealt useful depth forward Daniel Winnik - signed as an unrestricted free agent this summer - to the Pittsburgh Penguins.
In return the Maple Leafs have reportedly added a second-round pick in 2016, a fourth-round pick in 2015, and farmhand forward Zach Sill, according to TSN's Pierre LeBrun. The deal has now been officially confirmed by the club.

Any time you can make thousands of young children happy, you're having a good day. So naturally, the Toronto Marlies were looking to make the School Day crowd of over 7000 one that cheered more than booed in their game against the Charlotte Checkers this morning. Of course, there were other reasons for that as well; standings implications and personal pride obviously play a factor. Thankfully for the blue and white, they delivered on all of these, winning 4-1 over the Charlotte Checkers.

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.
