Maple Leafs blue line could use some help

It’s too early in the season to know for sure what defencemen are available in trades — that tends to be a function of their salary, their pending free agency status and what teams believe they’re playoff bound.

But you never know. In that spirit, here’s a list of defencemen who — if they squirt free that — the Leafs ought to consider.

Luca Sbisa, Ducks, 23, 6-2, 198 pounds.

Tim Gleason, Hurricanes, 30, 6-0, 217 pounds.

Kevin Klein, Predators, 30, 6-1, 200 pounds.

Shane O’Brien, Flames, 30, 6-3, 230 pounds.

Bryan Allen, Ducks, 33, 6-5, 234 pounds

Derek Morris, Coyotes, 35, 6-0, 201 pounds.

Hal Gill, Flyers, 38, 6-7, 250 pounds.
