Has Josh Leivo Asked For A Trade?

Toronto Maple Leafs forward Josh Leivo looks like he could easily be the odd man out once again for the 2018-19 season. The 25 year old only suited up for 16 games last year and there's no guarantee he can see that many or any more once again this season. Earlier this month he was mentioned in a report by Allan Mitchell of The Athletic as a possible depth addition for the Edmonton Oilers, now Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun adds some interesting information to the file. From Hornby's article:«Word was Leivo's handlers were pushing for a trade late last season, but he intends to make it harder than ever for general manager Kyle Dubas and coach Mike Babcock to ignore him in the coming weeks.»
Hornby's comments make sense as there was plenty of chatter last season that Leivo was unhappy and could want out. Do you think Leivo will finish the season in Toronto?
