It's now late January, and the Toronto Maple Leafs are skydiving down the standings. Last year, the reaction among the masses was a plea to reach for the parachute cord and pull; the results of the luck-driven prior season gave many hope that the tides could be reversed. This year? Written off. It's done. Wipe the hands of the dust and start getting ready for what's ahead. As such, speculation has begun as to what management has to do leading up to the trade deadline.
My answer? Not enter it as the same group they are now. Specifically, I'm looking towards the big guy.

Dion Phaneuf is out week to week with an upper body injury, according to Peter Horachek.— Jonas Siegel (@jonasTSN1050) January 26, 2015
The tweet above says it all. Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf will be out on a week-to-week basis with an upper-body injury. The Leafs are already dealing with a number of injuries, and losing their long-time #1 defenseman certainly won't help. So with Phaneuf out for the foreseeable future, what can we expect to see from the Leafs' blueline in the coming games?

Mike Richards of the Los Angeles Kings was placed on waivers today at noon. When he was first traded from Philadelphia to Los Angeles, rumors had Toronto among the teams trying to acquire him. And since Richards has began to struggle in L.A., rumors have again begun to circulate that link the former all-star center to the Maple Leafs.
