Multiple Maple Leafs Trade Offers Have Been Officially Leaked By Insider

Elliotte Friedman has just revealed what the Toronto Maple Leafs are reportedly offering for a goalie trade, and it isn't great.

Friedman Reveals Toronto Maple Leafs Are Offering Low For Goalies

The Toronto Maple Leafs are one of the many teams looking to trade for a potential goaltender this season, as they found themselves in some goalie trouble after Joseph Woll went out with an injury and Ilya Samsonov was sent to the minors after struggling to start the year.

Now, Elliotte Friedman has revealed exactly what the Leafs are offering teams to try and get a trade done for a goalie, and it isn't much. A sixth-round pick, to be precise.

«Elliotte Friedman says that the GM of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Brad Treliving, offered to several teams a sixth-round pick for a goalie, which every team refused. He would have hoped that a team would be desperate enough to trade one.

Luke Fox of Sportsnet speculates that Dan Vladar (Flames), Jake Allen (Canadiens), Eric Comrie (Sabres), and Anton Forsberg (Senators) were among the goalies targeted by Toronto.»

Leafs Must Not Be As Desperate As Previously Speculated For a Goalie

It's clear that Brad Treliving doesn't think that the Leafs are all that desperate to trade for a goalie, as he isn't offering much in return. Not like the Edmonton Oilers, who have been rumoured to be including a prospect as a sweetener to try and move Jack Campbell for a goalie.

Obviously, this offer isn't good enough for anyone, nor should it be. However, it does signal how Brad Treliving doesn't think the situation between the pipes is urgent for Toronto.
