The Toronto Maple Leafs are continuing their hunt for a defenseman to acquire, and now it appears they are targeting two defensemen from this team.

Leafs Potentially Looking at Pair of Flyers Defensemen

The Toronto Maple Leafs are well-reported as one of the teams looking desperately to fill gaps on their blueline before the trade deadline. There were previous reports that they were looking at Flyers Defenseman Rasmus Ristolinen from the Flyers, though, this was widely criticized by many fans online.
The Leafs are reportedly interested in Rasmus Ristolainen, who's coming off of one of the only not-bad seasons of his career. Worth the risk for a guy with four years left on his deal?

Now, Elliotte Freedman has revealed that teams are inquiring about a pair of Flyers defensemen, Sean Walker and Nick Seeler.
"There was a lot of talk over the last week about Philadelphia defenseman... and I do think there was at least one team that asked about the pair of Sean Walker and Nick Seeler and would the Flyers be willing to deal them together," revealed Friedman on Saturday night.

While the report isn't directly linked to the Leafs, the Leafs do have a pattern of trying to acquire pairs of defensemen from teams, as it was rumoured they were going after both Chris Tanev and Nikita Zadorov from the Flames.

Leafs Hold Predators to Shutout Last Night

All things considered, the Toronto Maple Leafs are doing pretty well, when you factor in how many starting defensemen they are missing. With Timothy Liljegren out, Mark Giordano out, and John Klingberg out, the Leafs are without 3 of their top 6 defensemen. Despite this, they have managed to win 4 of their last 5 games.
LEAFS WWWWWWWWWWWWWWIN!!!

It's clear the Leafs will make a move for a defenseman, or at least continue trying, what will be interesting is to see how much they are willing to give up.
