The Toronto Maple Leafs have put things together lately but general manager Kyle Dubas still feels the team needs some help.
Dubas tried to get veteran forward Justin Williams signed according to Pierre LeBrun, however Williams rejected that offer and returned to Carolina.
While the Leafs will likely be buyers at the trade deadline, they'll also be trying to sell a forward.
We've already heard that prospect Jeremy Bracco has requested a trade out of Toronto and now Craig Custance of The Athletic has him listed at #16 on his Trade Bait Board.
16. Jeremy Bracco, Toronto Maple Leafs – A second-round pick in 2015, Bracco has put up impressive production in the AHL, including a 79-point sophomore season, but he’s competing against a lengthy depth chart in Toronto. “There’s a lot of right shot guys in front of him,” said one NHL source.
At this point, it seems all signs point to him leaving Toronto before he ever gets to wear a Leafs' jersey.
The question is, will Bracco be moved in a smaller deal to get him a change of scenery or in a bigger package to land an NHL player?
