The Toronto Maple Leafs have a surplus of defensemen. The Chicago Blackhawks have an abundance of scoring forwards.
So it might stand to reason that the two teams would make suitable trading partners.
Tim Sassone of the Chicago Herald reports that the Leafs and Hawks indeed may be talking trade.

Kreider was selected 19th overall in the first round, one slot after the Canadiens chose hometown boy Louis Leblanc with their first pick. The hootin’ and hollerin’ over Leblanc had barely died down among Habs fans in the Bell Centre, and all around the city, when the Rangers followed by picking Kreider. The Habs stalled for a couple of minutes before choosing Leblanc, possibly because they were torn over whether to take Leblanc or Kreider.
Going into the free agent frenzy the rangers started with a bang by trading away underachieving Scott Gomez and then signing injury prone sniper Marian Gaborik with his money which in my opinion was a good move but now the rangers need to fill in the little pieces to the puzzle to make them more than just a playoff team like the past couple years have gone.
As a long time TML fan I have come to notice every year Toronto pushes for a playoff spot until around the trade deadline when they give up. This year I was hoping to grab IMO one of the best forwards in the draft. Brayden Schenn. However draft day came as a dissapointment. No disrespect to Nazem Kadri. But by not being able to draft Schenn. Why not trade for him? I think one of your “lesser Defensmen” packaged with something could bring Brayden to the blue and white.

The Blue Jackets have a glut of left wingers on their roster and a glaring need for a skilled defenseman. Really, it’s the last hurdle for GM Scott Howson to clear this off-season.

Now that I think Gainey is done, I’m having a hard time trying to decide if the Canadiens are any better.
First I will start with the forwards, if you look at the names Cammalleri for Tanguay (adv Cammalleri), Gomez for Koivu (equal), Kostopoulos for Moen (equal), and Gionta for Kovalev (Advantage Kovalev). Along with who has left, Higgins, Lang, and Dandeneault. I think that this years forwards may not be able to score like last years unless kids like Stewart, Chipchura, Latendresse, S Kostitsyn, and D’Agostini can pick it up this year. So in my opinion our forwards are a downgrade this year.
