"When Nikita Soshnikov's conditioning stint was up after Sunday, everybody including NHL insider Bob McKenzie expected Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Lou Lamoriello to make a significant roster move. Instead, Lamoriello placed Soshnikov on IR to buy himself some more time. While many expected Josh Leivo to be the man moved out because of trade requests, Lamoriello actually stated this weekend he never received one. According to one KHL insider, it's actually Soshnikov himself who could be the man moved out. Aivis Kalnins Tweeted out that the team is looking to trade Soshnikov. The Leafs are out of roster spots and don't want to risk placing Kasperi Kapanen on waivers, so one of Soshnikov, Matt Martin or Josh Leivo will be moved in the coming days or weeks, however long Lou can keep the doctors away from Soshnikov. Who do you think will be the moved between the three?
