TSN's Darren Dreger dropped a potential bombshell on Tuesday's edition of "Insider Trading" when he revealed that the Toronto Maple Leafs have indeed "kicked tires" on Arizona Coyotes defenseman Jakob Chychrun.

Dreger did also caution that, given the way the Leafs' roster is currently constructed, GM Kyle Dubas would have to get "extraordinarily creative" in order to make it happen.

Given the fact that no less than two Atlantic Division rivals are reportedly strong contenders for Chychrun's services (Boston, Florida), perhaps Dubas will be more inclined do what is necessary to pull something off that would not only improve his team, but also take a big piece off the board for the Bruins and the Panthers.

Dreger's sources have put together a list of teams who are believed to be at the forefront of the Chychrun sweeps, and that list includes the likes of Boston, Florida, Los Angeles, Anaheim and St. Louis.


Yotes GM Bill Armstrong is rumoured to be looking for 4 pieces in the deal, including a good roster player, a top prospect and a pair of high draft picks. Dreger says that Armstrong is in no hurry. He will certainly wait for a satisfactory offer to come his way and will not rush a deal.
