The Toronto Maple Leafs will be looking for a tiny facelift this offseason hoping to finally get past the first round of the playoffs. It's expected that the core group of players will return next year, but anything's possible for a team looking to make some changes. One change that everybody hope to see is some improvement on the defensive side of things. They'll likely lose both Tyson Barrie and Cody Ceci to free agency and will have to bring somebody in with some NHL experience. The Edmonton Journal's David Staples and Sportsnet's Brian Burke have both labelled Edmonton Oilers' defenseman Adam Larsson as a perfect fit. Leafs' general manager Kyle Dubas might feel the same way as insider Chris Johnston has confirmed the Leafs inquired about Larsson at the trade deadline. With neither team having much cap space, Lyle Richardson of Bleacher Report reports we could see a one for one swap of Larsson and Kasperi Kapanen. The Oilers need a speedy winger in their top six and Kapanen could be the perfect fit. Would you make this trade?
