If the Leafs do go after some more help for their defence it may be down the road right before the trading deadine and not necessarily this week or this month........maybe by then one team that looks to miss out on the playoffs that wasn't expecting to ends up making a deal with the Leafs and the Leafs end up getting a guy for their blueline then alot cheaper than what it would cost them if they were to make such a deal now.
