Many expected that the Toronto Maple Leafs would trade away some of their core players at the draft, to speed up the rebuild process and get some young assets in return. However the Leafs didn’t pull the trigger on any major deals at all. Brendan Shanahan however said after the Entry Draft that several teams have inquired about players on the Leafs rosters and he isn’t dissapointed that the Leafs didn’t change the face of the franchise. Big trades could however be around the corner now that teams can concentrate on the free agent frenzy and improving their team. Players on the Leafs roster who have been involved in rumors include Phil Kessel, Dion Phaneuf, Tyler Bozak and Joffrey Lupul.
