"The Toronto Maple Leafs will be looking to make some additions and possible subtractions to their blueline this offseason. It seems there might be some mutual interest regarding one of the top free agents this offseason. According to NHL insider Elliotte Friedman, there's a match building between the Leafs and Dougie Hamilton. «Some people have told me that yes (Hamilton) would be interested in playing in Toronto because obviously, he has a hometown connection here. I've had people say to me that, who know Hamilton or who have been around Hamilton, they're not convinced this is the best place for him.
The interesting thing about that is that if Hamilton were to hear that, he's got the kind of personality which I kind of admire a little bit, to say ‘Well screw that. I'm going to prove you wrong' and maybe that would be a good thing for Toronto.
But I have had some people who've played with him say they're not convinced it's the best place for him but maybe we find out. And B I find it hard to believe that Toronto on some level isn't figuring out exactly how to do this.»Hamilton has been extremely consistent production wise on the offensive side of things the last couple of years and has improved defensively. He'd also be a great fit for the Leafs power play. Would you like to see the Leafs and general manager Kyle Dubas try to figure out a way to bring Hamilton in?
