The Toronto Maple Leafs have been a source of disappointment for fans since the season began. Not only has their overall performance frustrated their loyal fanbase, and the recent injuries added salt to the wound.

The Maple Leafs were already grappling with a lack of depth on the blue line, and the injuries to key players Timothy Liljegren and Jake McCabe have only worsen their situation.


While the original plan was to bolster the defensive roster before the trade deadline, their current state may provoke them to move sooner.

In fact, there's a genuine possibility that Brad Treliving, the team's general manager, could acquire two defensemen from the same team sooner than anticipated.

Could Leafs' GM Treliving Secure Zadorov and Tanev from the Calgary Flames?

If things do not improve for the Calgary Flames in the near future, they might opt to become sellers this season, trading their veteran players for draft picks or prospects.

Treliving's previous connections with the Flames, as their former GM, are well-known, and according to Elliotte Friedman, he would jump at the chance to bring in Zadorov and Tanev if possible.

"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.

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."


Both Zadorov and Tanev would be excellent additions to the Leafs.

Indeed, the prospect of such a trade is exciting for Maple Leafs fans, as it could significantly enhance the team's chances of making a deep playoff run.

Do you think Treliving will get both defensemen from the Flames?
