“A rumor circulating north of the border has the Maple Leafs in hot pursuit of defenseman Brian Leetch, who spent a short time in Toronto in the 2003-04 season after spending almost 17 years with the Rangers. The rumor is fueled because Maple Leafs defenseman Bryan McCabe has been sidelined since Jan. 7 with a torn muscle in his groin, but O’Connell said if the Maple Leafs are trying to make a deal, it’s news to him. ”There’s no truth at all,” said O’Connell. ”We haven’t discussed trading Brian Leetch at all.” Leetch, who signed a one-year contract without a no-trade clause last summer, has been sidelined the last three games with a groin strain.”

Will the Leafs reclaim one of the few defensive bright spots that they had in the last 5 years?
