The Toronto Maple Leafs have been squarely in the middle of just about every trade rumor this season. With the team below their standards fans and media feel the need for reinforcements. Today a new suggestion brings in a big-time name to Toronto.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have been rumored to be exploring trades for a defenseman to balance out their lineup. Many people are disappointed with the defensive capabilities of many players in the Maple Leafs lineup.
Players like John Klingberg and Mark Giordano have been disappointing while others like Timothy Liljegren have dealt with injuries. Today's rumored trade brings in a huge name to the forward group while still addressing the defensive side of the game.

Maple Leafs Have A Major Trade Proposal On The Table To Consider

Today an article from Editor In Leaf suggested a massive trade involving the struggling San Jose Sharks. They have star forward Tomas Hertl locked up for seven more years under contract. The 29-year-old will not fit in with the Sharks window to contend and likely wants to move on to a new situation.
With this in mind, the Toronto Maple Leafs could pull off a blockbuster and bring in a defenseman in the process. Sharks young defenseman Ty Emberson has played 9 NHL games this season. Emberson is a 23-year-old right-handed defenseman.
With where the Sharks are they likely want to get out of Hertl's contract. This could bring his price down despite his good play this season. If they can get another team to retain some salary along the way the Maple Leafs could give up a prospect and a couple of picks and fill two potential holes in the lineup.
This trade is likely one that happens closer to the trade deadline but the talks could begin soon if they haven't already. One thing is for sure the Maple Leafs need to make a move to smooth out the edges of their lineup before the playoffs begin.
