Ugh. Please don't.
According to Sportsnet's Nick Kypreos, the Toronto Maple Leafs could be calling on two of the bigger names in this year's free agency class.

We're about an hour away from free agency, but it might be a trade that defines Toronto's day as opposed to a signing.
According to TSN's Darren Dreger, appearing on TSN 1050, the Arizona Coyotes appear to be interested in acquiring the Maple Leafs' Tyler Bozak.

It’s Free Agency Eve and unlike other years we don’t have to worry about getting Clarkson or Komisarek in our stockings.
Toronto among the teams that got a visit from Matt Beleskey. Not sure I'd list them as a favorite to land him though. Has options.— Craig Custance (@CraigCustance) June 30, 2015
Dammit. Anyway, we here at TLN have put together some #content for you over the past couple of months on Free Agency, possible Leafs on the moves via trades, and of course there’s been the Nation Network countdown of the top free agents available. Now is an excellent time to revisit some favourites while praying to Wendel that Matt Beleskey wants to go to a contender.

It's an indication of the strength of this particular UFA crop that Justin Williams comes in number 1 on our list. That's not to take anything away from the 33 year old, who has been a high-end winger for years. But his age and the fact that he's only scored in the 40-point range the last two seasons goes to show there isn't a lot of franchise changing players available to sign this summer.
Despite those concerns, Williams remains a very useful player, in part because his value doesn't merely come from his offense. As one of the few wingers who has proven he can push possession over the years, Williams is a guy who can play up and down the line-up and provide quality minutes to whoever inks him.
