The Toronto Maple Leafs have had quite the off-season so far when it comes to front office reconstruction and with a new general manger comes new ideas. One of which would be a different take on how to construct their roster, specifically their back end.

According to the Fourth Period's David Pagnotta, Leafs new general manager Brad Treliving may want to overhaul, Toronto's back end; take a look.

While most of this interview was centred around the impending Matthews' contract talks, Pagnotta did mention an area of concern to be the defence.

Treliving is no stranger to going out and restructuring a defensive corps, he did it in Calgary, it wouldn't be surprising to see him do it in Toronto as well. Bringing in names like Noah Hanafin, Dougie Hamilton and Nikita Zadorov among others during his time in Calgary.

Toronto's defence isn't that bad as it stands, but if they can get stronger defensively, they should.

It'll be interesting to see how Treliving puts his mark on the roster, he certainly has a lot to do if he wants to make this team more competitive
