Today is the day! At 3:00 PM EST, the NHL will officially close the doors on any trades that involve players looking to play hockey for their new teams this year. The Toronto Maple Leafs have given up on winning hockey games, and are expected to be big sellers; a process they've already started. Here's a round-up of some of the things that might go down.

Teams are telling me the Maple Leafs are working hard to trade Phil Kessel and Dion Phaneuf today. #tvasports— Renaud Lavoie (@renlavoietva) March 2, 2015
It seems like the talks around Phaneuf have really been elevated over the last week, with the Wings being thrown out there a few times as potential suitors. TSN's Bob McKenzie indicated yesterday evening that Detroit has had some internal discussions about pursuing the Leafs' Phaneuf and/or Lupul, though the Erik Cole trade obviously takes them out of the picture on Lupul.

You know what? If you're scrolling by this article right now, pausing, and saying "holy ****, the Leafs played tonight?", I don't blame you at all. First off, it's Sunday, which makes it weird enough to see the Leafs on TV. Secondly, does anybody even care anymore?
I don't think the Leafs do, as they've proven by getting shut out 4-0. No, seriously, tonight too.

Spring is almost here! The trade deadline is almost here! First Star, Worst Star? It's here RIGHT NOW!

The Toronto Maple Leafs will look to bounce back from an embarrassing 4-0 loss to the Montreal Canadiens last night when they meet up with the Washington Capitals this evening. On the other hand, Toronto Maple Leafs fans will look for their favourite team to continue their losing ways, as they are so, so, so near the bottom of the standings, and looking ever more likely to secure a top-5 draft pick.
