Maple Leafs GM Looking To Make Bold Trade Before Trade Deadline

Published February 24, 2024 at 8:58

The Toronto Maple Leafs are leaving no stone unturned as they aim to bolster their roster for the upcoming playoffs, especially in key areas like forward and defense.

One prominent voice in the hockey world, Craig Button, shared his insights on TSN regarding what he believes the Maple Leafs should prioritize for a successful playoff run:

«Be ready to act on any option that makes your team better. You have this really good group of what I call five players and now your team is functioning and you know where you're at, you know where your weaknesses are or where you need to be stronger. Are you going to keep nibbling or nipping at the edges or are you going to go after it?

I've heard again and again and again about the Toronto Maple Leafs' belief in their core, and they should have belief in their core. Well now, go and help the core. You're not going to win unless you get deeper, unless you become a deeper team. I'm talking about specifically on the blue line, there is just no way.

To me, that's what I mean about being bold and if you're not going to be bold, you're throwing it up to a hope and a prayer. Hope and prayer is not a plan for me.»

Button emphasized the importance of boldness and aggressiveness, particularly in addressing the need for a top-four defenseman.

In the quest for the Stanley Cup, it's all about seizing the moment. As the old saying goes, "go big or go home," and that's precisely the approach Toronto needs to adopt.

With Auston Matthews lighting up the scoreboard, John Tavares showing signs of slowing down, William Nylander shining bright with his recent contract extension, and the team overcoming goaltending challenges to secure wins, the time for decisive action is now.

Brad Treliving, at the helm of decision-making, must rally the team and pull out all the stops to make a bold push towards glory.
