|ESPN.com: Cross Checks||[Print without images]|
The Toronto Maple Leafs are talking trade with numerous teams, and the one player on their roster that has attracted attention is Kris Versteeg.
The Leafs were not actively shopping him, a source told ESPN.com Saturday, but they recently got a "hard offer" from a team for the 24-year-old winger that made them pause. While they didn't take the offer, they have informed other teams in their various talks of it, which essentially means Versteeg is now in play. That doesn't mean he'll move, but at this point, there are very few untouchables on the Leafs roster and Versteeg is one of their more attractive pieces.
He's got one more year left on his deal, which pays him $3.08 million. The Leafs are on the lookout for a big center or at the very least any top-six forward that would add size to their smallish group up front.
