NHL Rumors: Maple Leafs Scouting Flyers & Coyotes for Trade Targets

The Toronto Maple Leafs are expected to be busy before the March 3 trade deadline and it appears they have their eyes set out on a couple of teams. General manager Kyle Dubas was spotted scouting the Arizona Coyotes/Philadelphia Flyers game on Thursday night.

Both the Coyotes and Flyers are expected to be sellers at this season's trade deadline as they tank for top draft prospect Connor Bedard. There's a number of pending unrestricted free agents who could be appealing to the Maple Leafs and there's also Coyotes defenseman Jakob Chychrun who is still entering the prime of his career and has a few years left on his contract.

Leafs trade targets likely include the following players:


James van Riemsdyk, Travis Konecny, Justin Braun


Chychrun, Lawson Crouse, Nick Bjugstad, Shayne Gostisbehere, Liam O'Brien
