Leafs GM Kyle Dubas wanted Subban, Doughty or Ekblad

The Toronto Maple Leafs defence has been a hot topic of discussion over the past couple seasons and it appears Kyle Dubas had a few names on his wish list at the trade deadline. Drew Doughty, PK Subban and Aaron Ekblad were all names Dubas had circled according to Chris Johnston of Sportsnet.

Any deal would have likely included Nazem Kadri and Timothy Liljegren to say the least but Dubas was willing to pull the trigger if presented the opportunity. Nazem Kadri has been on the radar of teams all season and even after the playoff debacle, it's expected the calls will continue. 

Kyle Dubas is expected to bring his wish list to the Draft in June in hopes to land the big fish defenceman he's been tracking for over a year. Who knows if he will catch one, we just know he'll be using Kadri as bait.
