There's plenty of question marks regarding the Toronto Maple Leafs offseason and what exactly general manager Kyle Dubas will do. To start, Dubas will have to make a decision on the various unrestricted free agents the Leafs have including Tomas Plekanec, Tyler Bozak, Leo Komarov, Dominic Moore, James van Riemsdyk and Roman Polak. Well at least according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman it looks like the Leafs and Dubas have already made a decision on one of them. According to Friedman in his latest "31 Thoughts" article the Leafs are looking for a third line center. This would mean the Leafs likely have no intention of attempting to re-sign Tyler Bozak. The 32 year old Bozak shouldn't have any trouble finding a new team during the summer as he's been one of the Leafs most consistent players even during the dark times. He's put up an exceptional 53.6% faceoff winning percentage and even hit 56% in both 2016-17 and 2015-16. Some names that could interest the Leafs on the UFA market are Joe Thornton, Valtteri Filppula, Derek Ryan, Riley Nash or possibly re-signing Tomas Plekanec and bumping him up to the third line.
