There have been some questions about whether or not the Toronto Maple Leafs will look to make a big move ahead of the National Hockey League's trade deadline, and it would appear as though the Maple Leafs may be leaning towards an answer in the affirmative at this time.
On Saturday afternoon, Maple Leafs general manager Brad Treliving was spotted scouting a pair of rival teams as the NHL put on a number of early afternoon games. Treliving was spotted personally scouting a game between the St. Louis Blues and Buffalo Sabres, although who he was there to scout specifically is anyone's guess at this time.
Buffalo Sabres forward Casey Mittelstadt is a player whose name has come up frequently over the last week in trade rumors, although Lance Lysowski of the Buffalo News does not believe the Sabres are in a rush to move the talented winger.
The Blues on the other hand have a number of players that are on expiring contracts and could serve as rentals, including defenseman Marco Scandella, forwards Oskar Sundqvist and Samuel Blais and even a familiar face in former Toronto Maple Leafs forward Kasperi Kapanen.
Stay tuned to this one.
