InsidePittsburghSports.com is reporting that the Toronto Maple Leafs have contacted new GM Jim Rutherford about a trade for James Neal.
The Pens need to dump salary and Neal is one of the players Pittsburgh is trying to trade at the NHL Entry Draft.
“Some people came after me today and there’s ideas out there,” said Rutherford, per Sportsnet’s Chris Johnston. “I haven’t been throwing any ideas out, but I’ll listen. Obviously there’s going to be some new players there because just the position we’re in with the cap.”
