Leafs to Make a Trade Soon?

Leafs' GM Brad Treliving has been exploring the trade market for a while now, mainly hoping to reinforce the Leafs' blue line.
However, they have no cap space available.
They've placed defenseman John Klingberg on the Long Term Injury Reserve last week and with his salary off the roster, Treliving could have enough space to make a deal happen.
Later this week, when the Leafs have a better idea of Klingberg's injury, it should give us an idea of what's to come in Toronto.
If his season is over, Treliving will have $4.15M to use to bring outside help.
But if Klingberg can return during the regular season, the Leafs will be penalized if they don't have enough cap space to activate him.

Trade Discussions: Poised to Make a Deal with the Flames?

Treliving, former GM of the Flames, still has strong connections to Calgary. There's a lot of speculation about a potential deal involving Chris Tanev or Nikita Zadorov.
Both players would fit well with what Toronto seeks.
If that doesn't happen, Treliving could turn to Anaheim for Ilya Lyubushkin, or Philadelphia for Sean Walker. Both players are already on his radar, per Sportsnet's report.
Do you think the Leafs will trade for a defenseman before the deadline in March?
