The Toronto Maple Leafs look to be going all in this season to try and hang onto some peoples jobs and gain the respect of the league.

Last night the Maple Leafs pulled off a blockbuster trade bringing in Ryan O'Reilly to an already stacked roster, and apparently the Maple Leafs are far from done.

One thing this team has desperately needed for a long time is better defence and that could be exactly what Kyle Dubas is trying to do.

According to NHL Insider Darren Dreger:


Leafland is buzzing, as it should be. Sense is, Dubas isn't done, which emphasizes an all-in approach. Kerfoot? Engvall? Holl? Kampf? What collateral does Toronto use for another move? Very curious to see if ROR is a 3c or if there's big league experimenting on the wing



There are some big names still available for trade in the NHL and if the Maple Leafs can swing a trade to get rid of the contracts of Kerfoot ($3,500,000 cap hit) Engvall ($2,250,000 cap hit) Holl ($2,000,000 cap hit) and Kampf ($1,500,000 cap hit) thats 9,250,000 in cap space free'd up.

They could still make a trade for a Patrick Kane if the Blackhawks were to retain salary and also bring in Jakob Chychrun!
