It's the blockbuster trade that you've all been waiting for. Hot on the heels of the deal that sent Cody Franson and Mike Santorelli to the Nashville Predators, the Leafs organization has made their second big splash.
Actually, it's not all that big. In fact, the trade was technically by the Marlies, and not the Leafs.

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%.

Hope_Smoke, let me hear that sweet, sweet music...
McKenzie "it's at best 50/50 that Bozak moves [at the deadline]"— Hope_Smoke (@Hope_Smoke) February 19, 2015
McKenzie said teams are inquiring on Bozak but trying to pick the carcass of the Leafs due to them being in distress right now.— Hope_Smoke (@Hope_Smoke) February 19, 2015
Oh yeah, that's the stuff.
The Toronto Maple Leafs might be moving Tyler Bozak before the March 2nd trade deadline, though it likely won't happen unless someone steps up and offers fair value. To be honest, I'd be down with "close-to-fair" value, if only to get rid of that contract.

As per Leafs twitter, Toronto has recalled Andrew MacWilliam from the Marlies.
Since emergency recalls can only happen for injuries that means one of Rielly, Holzer, Robidas, Gardiner, Polak or Granberg are potentially too banged up to play tomorrow and MacWilliam will make his NHL debut.
