The Toronto Maple Leafs definitely need to add some help before the trade deadline. With Morgan Rielly out, adding a defenseman is high priority, however with Frederik Andersen out as well, the team needs a goalie.Either way, it's clear the Leafs need something.The Athletic put together a list of top targets for the Leafs and the player who sits at #2 is pretty interesting and realistic. Anaheim Ducks' defenseman Josh Manson sits as the second top target. The 28 year old has two years left on his contract that carries an AAV of $4.1million. What would it cost to land Manson? Likely Kasperi Kapanen and Cody Ceci's expiring contract. The 6'3 224lb defenseman would bring some physicality to the Leafs blueline with a nasty punch and fits perfectly beside Morgan Rielly. According to James Mirtle and Jonas Siegel, it would create a shutdown pairing of Jake Muzzin and Justin Holl to go up against other team's top lines. Would you make this trade?
