The Toronto Maple Leafs have done some great work in free agency, but now a reunion with former forward James Van Riemsdyk could be in the works.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have been hard at work in free agency thus far, with the acquisitions of Jani Hakanpaa, Chris Tanev, Anthony Stolarz and Oliver Ekman-Larsson, while re-signing Max Domi and Timothy Liljegren.
Still, it is believed that the team have much work to do to solidify their forward group, and now one of their top targets has been labelled as the best remaining free agent in the NHL..
According to Daily Faceoff, van Riemsdyk at 35-years of age is still the best value player on the market, even if his days in the top-six of a contending team are over, making a reunion with the Maple Leafs, a team looking for depth scoring a no-brainer.

After spending so much money, the Maple Leafs don't have the option of making a big money splash, but after scoring 11 goals last season on a talented Boston Bruins team, the veteran makes perfect sense.
The 35-year old may be on his last legs in the NHL, but he still has the ability to be a great goal scorer, and if the Maple Leafs ink him to a deal, he'll bring veteran expertise to a lineup that lacks depth, so keep an eye on the former Maple Leaf as an option for Brad Treliving this summer.
