A report suggests that the Toronto Maple Leafs are interested in acquiring a forward from one of their top rivals in the NHL.

Everything pointed to the fact that Brad Treliving would focus on getting a defenseman or a goalie before the deadline in order to bolster his team ahead of the playoffs.
The latest potential target is extremely interesting for Maple Leafs' fans: Sean Monahan.
TSN shared their "Trade Bait List" on social media a few days ago, and a few players from Montreal are in there, including Monahan.
"TSN has just updated its 'NHL Trade Bait List,' and out of 20 players, 4 belong to the #Habs (Canadiens):

Mike Matheson
Sean Monahan
Jake Allen
Cayden Primeau
Trade rumors in Montreal are not about to die down!"

Getting Key Players From Montreal Will be a Challenge

The Habs' general manager, Kent Hughes, is known for being a tough negotiator. He wants the best possible offers for his assets and don't mind waiting until it comes to him.
The Canadiens are surprisingly performing well this season and they could be aiming for a playoff spot rather than a top draft pick.
If the Leafs truly want to get him, they'll need to make the right offer. His cap friendly $2 million AAV salary makes him even more attractive around the League.
Also, since the Leafs are reportedly in the market for a goalie, Montreal could be a great team to partner up with.
Elliotte Friedman on Saturday's Headlines says he believes Toronto has «dipped their toes» in the goalie market with the injury to Joseph Woll and the struggles with Ilya Samsonov.
