Good morning Toronto Maple Leafs fans!

The most exciting time of the regular season, especially for bloggers, tweeters, and insiders. It's trade deadline week!

The Leafs already got down to business earlier this week by bringing back defender Ilya Lyubushkin on the cheap, to add some depth to the defense.

Maple Leafs acquire Ilya Lyubushkin from Anaheim
The Toronto Maple Leafs have swung a trade with Anaheim, with Carolina filling the third party role for double retention. They bring back Ilya Lybushkin as a right shot defenseman.

They have also gotten some additions with Joseph Woll and Calle Jarnkrok returning injury, as well as with Max Domi and Tyler Bertuzzi finding their game in Toronto finally.

That's not to say the Leafs will stand pay or not try and upgrade. Maybe another centre? Maybe a winger, but the biggest need, as always, is defence.

Well, whatever they do we have five days to speculate about it and then a few months to over-analyse everything.

Best time of the year!

The New Jersey Devils were the only team to make a move since the Leafs, when they acquired Kurtis MacDermid from the Colorado Avalanche for a seventh round pick and Zakhar Bardakov.
