Maple Leafs don't have the prospect depth to make that kind of move, and the Leafs also aren't just one big trade away from competing. Doing something like that would likely sacrifice this teams long-term competitive ability in order to just be somewhat more competitive in the short-term, but ultimately not good enough to win anything.

Jays weren't in the same position as the Leafs. Getting a top notch free agent would be the best way to "accelerate" the rebuild, since it wouldn't cost us anything in terms of assets.
