Since the Toronto Maple Leafs hired Brad Treliving to be there General Manager there has been a belief that a major change would happen to the Leafs roster. More specifically there was belief that the Maple Leafs would look to make a major change to their defense core.

With training camps set to start in 6 weeks the Leafs have yet to upgrade their defense. Instead the only change made is the addition of John Klingberg, a purely offensive option. Today though, a rumor surfaced linking the Maple Leafs to Columbus Blue Jackets derender, Andrew Peeke.

Additional information has the Maple Leafs looking at Peeke as a possible replacement for TJ Brodie.


Over the last two seasons Peeke, 25, has played 162 games and has posted 8 goals and 20 assists. Peeke is a purely defensive dman, starting nearly 70% of his shifts in his own zone. Peeke has E years remaining on his current contract paying him $2,750,000 per season.

While Peeke could certainly save the Maple Leafs some cap space, he would definitely be a downgrade over Brodie defensively.
