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.

The rumors are flying faster then ever now. Cody Franson and Mike Santorelli have already bitten the dust. With less than a week to go before trade deadline day, here's a full breakdown of the Leafs that might get traded between now and March 2nd:
This is the most obvious one. Winnik has been a great bang-for-your-buck signing for the Leafs this season. Unfortunately for us Leaf fans who have enjoyed him so much, Winnik is a victim of circumstance. He's a 29-year-old carrying a cheap cap hit that's set to be a free agent this summer. And when you're a team looking to rebuild, these are the sort of assets that can help you get younger. TSN Insider Darren Dreger has set the likelihood of Winnik being traded by the deadline at 100%, so unless he gets injured he's a goner. Pierre LeBrun believes Winnipeg and Pittsburgh are two teams with interest in the versatile winger.

A week from now, we'll all be yelling about what the Leafs did or didn't do at the deadline. For now though, there's some time to yell about all the other things in the Toronto hockey world! Welcome to this week's TLN Mailbag, where I take your Leafs and Marlies questions and give some bad to mediocre responses. If you'd like to ask a question, tweet @tlndc or myself. Alternatively, you can leave a comment below and it may get featured next week.
