Elliotte Friedman Believes The Leafs Are Interested In Rick Nash.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are expected to make at least one move to try and strengthen their chances at winning a couple of rounds in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. While most believe that the Leafs are looking for help on the blueline, more and more talk has come up recently in regards to the Leafs adding a forward. Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman believes the Leafs are a suitor for one of the big names on this years trade block. Despite Rick Nash refusing to accept a trade to a Canadian team the last time he was on the block, Friedman believes the Leafs are the exception this time around. While Friedman's comment is interesting, it's hard to see the Leafs paying the expected asking price for Nash which is "A first-round pick, a top prospect and another lesser player, or prospect or pick in combination with those" according to Bob McKenzie. Friedman also lists the Dallas Stars, St. Louis Blues, Los Angeles Kings, San Jose Sharks, Columbus Blue Jackets and possibly the Winnipeg Jets as suitors along with the Leafs. Of course, all this is a moot point if the Leafs aren't on Nash's list of 12 teams he'll accept a trade too. Do you think Nash would be a good addition to the Leafs?
