Trade line chatter is building up and we hear the Toronto Maple Leafs are in the mix for a couple of pieces. The latest comes from the Metropolitan Division as the New York Rangers continue their rebuild. Forward Mats Zuccarello has been waiting on a trade since the starting of the season and it seems it should happen before the deadline. The 31 year old will become UFA after this season and currently holds no trade protection. He's registered 24 points in 35 games so far this season and has been ripping it up lately. He has nine points in his last five games.The Fourth Period has Zuccarello #5 on their trade board showing the Leafs as a team to be interested. Zuccarello could play anywhere in the lineup alongside Tavares, Matthews or Kadri and would definitely be an interesting look on the power play. Would you like to see Zuccarello in a Leafs uniform?
