The Toronto Maple Leafs have had an eventful offseason. From the hiring of new general manager Brad Treliving to the signings of John Klingberg and Max Domi. Even the most recent news of goaltender Matt Murray being placed on IR.

With about half the offseason left to go, there is still plenty on Brad Treliving's plate though.

Star Contract Extensions

Treliving's main priority has to be re-signing Auston Matthews and William Nylander. Both of these players have expiring deals after the upcoming season and are key offensive pieces for the Leafs if they want to contend. The most recent rumors indicate that a Matthews extension is closer than a Nylander one.

Adding Some Bite On Defense

The Leafs added John Klingberg on defense during the early part of free agency. While this adds a dynamic element to the Leafs' defense Klingberg is not a particularly physical presence.
Adding this type of player will likely have to be added through a trade by Treliving as most of the serviceable defensemen who play with an edge have been scooped up.

2023-24 Toronto Maple Leafs

As of now the major shake-up to the Leafs core that many were thinking could happen under Treliving has not. The core remains and the players that will be relied on in the playoffs are largely the same. The one area that will be interesting to watch is the powerplay. Morgan Rielly has been the powerplay quarterback for the last several years. With John Klingberg being added to the fold who is excellent on the powerplay this could change.
