It may mean nothing and it may mean the general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs is trying to get a closer look at a player or players he has his eye on, but social media was abuzz when the Leafs GM was spotted at the Ottawa Senators vs. Calgary Flames game. Of course, speculation was there he was scouting for a trade and that became news for Sportsnet who tweeted a graphic of him up in the stands.

Leafs rumors are everywhere as far as what and who the team might be interested in. With only a couple of weeks left before the trade deadline comes and goes, Dubas has publicly noted that he’s going to try and add before the and give his team the best chance to win. Many think he’s got his eyes on Mikael Granlund out of Nashville, but one of the issues for Toronto in that regard is the mandatory 14-day quarantine Granlund would have to adhere to before joining the team.

As such, it makes sense that Dubas would be watching Canadian teams and scouting possible options. TSN’s Frank Seravalli noted on the most recent TSN Insider Trading segment that Dubas might need to move to Plan B, Plan C or Plan D. Maybe that includes Calgary and Ottawa? After all, it will be much easier to trade with a Canadian team than a U.S.-based one.

Who Might Dubas Be Scouting?

Scott Burnside of The Athletic threw out the idea of a blockbuster deal for Flames’ forward Johnny Gaudreau, but that seems far fetched considering the salary cap issues Toronto is dealing with. It’s more likely Dubas is looking at a less-expensive options or a depth piece. Who that is remains unclear.

There were talks earlier this season that Sam Bennett might be a fit in Toronto. He played 15:48 on the night in a 3-1 loss to the Senators and went plus/minus – 1.

Keep in mind, there is a chance Dubas was simply scouting the two teams. Toronto plays in Ottawa tomorrow and he’s seen the Flames and Senators in-person a lot already.
