Dreger Report: Leafs shopping for reinforcements up front

The Toronto Maple Leafs are shopping for reinforcements.

Leafs general manager Dave Nonis is searching for a forward, preferably a centreman, to help fill the void created by injuries to Dave Bolland and Tyler Bozak.

While discussions on the trade front are increasing, the market for quality centres is always sketchy and the expected return often requires a premium package of a young roster player, top prospect and a draft pick. 

For the right player, the Maple Leafs might be willing to pay such a price, however, it's more likely Toronto uses its depth on the blueline or utilizes draft picks in a less significant trade to plug the holes.

The search has basically just begun and while the Leafs need help up front, in the meantime, head coach Randy Carlyle appears willing to be creative to fill the void, which explains James van Riemsdyk centering a line with Phil Kessel and Joffrey Lupul Monday in practice.   

There's no sense of panic in Toronto, but, there is a keen interest in making a trade to help ease the strain.
