Report: Maple Leafs GM Personally Scouts Two Rival Teams

Published January 15, 2024 at 3:56 PM

The Toronto Maple Leafs made a massive deal with William Nylander in the past week, and now it appears they're looking at making another splash sometime in the near future.

Brad Treliving seen scouting multiple rivals

Despite the bad weather over the weekend, Elliotte Friedman has revealed that Brad Treliving, the General Manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs took a trip to scout two rival teams.

Those teams were the Buffalo Sabres and Vancouver Canucks, but given that they are priming themselves for a Stanley Cup run, it's a bit confusing why he would be scouting the Canucks.

"There was bad weather in Buffalo we all know the story," said Elliotte Friedman on the 32 Thoughts Podcast. "Brad Treliving made a trip on Saturday afternoon to go see the Sabres and the Canucks."

Toronto looking to shake things up

This came after his team blew a 3-0 lead to the Avalanche, their third straight loss after leading their opponents, and with other rumours circulating, it's becoming clear that a shakeup may be in order.

With plenty of the season to go and still seven weeks until the March 8 trade deadline, there's time for Toronto to be patient and make the right move, but with the Leafs struggling as of late, Treliving's hand may be forced into making a franchise altering deal.
