Elliotte Friedman just revealed that Brad Treliving and the Toronto Maple Leafs could be making a move for these two big-named players.

Treliving On the Move For Zadorov and Tanev from the Flames

The Leafs have struggled on the blueline this year, mostly due to injuries, but also some unfortunate play from new additions. This has left new GM Brad Treliving on the lookout for potential additions to the Leafs' defence.

Elliotte Freidman just revealed that Treliving could now be looking at his former team in order to find reinforcements for the Leafs.

Friedman on 32T: «I think they are looking for D you know the one I can see is Zadorov, & I'll bet you this if they can find a way to get Zadorov & Tanev, I bet you they would do it»

2nd time Friedman has mentioned Zadorov/TOR since Treliving arrived.

«I bet you they would do both of them If Calgary was willing to do that I really believe it Now, I'm not saying it's gonna happen, but if you show me a path where that could occur, I could see it.»

Leafs Have Had Some Unfortunate Luck on the Blueline to Start the Year

The Leafs' main struggle so far this season has been the blueline. They have unfortunately suffered some injuries that have made it more difficult. New addition John Klingberg has also struggled to find his groove yet this year. It is unlikely that Giordano will be able to continue his heavy minutes long into the season and playoffs given his age.

Adding to the Leafs' blueline might be imperative for success this year.
