The 50/50 club – Tyler Toffoli, Josh Leivo, Troy Stecher, and Jordie Benn.

The complete wild cards – Loui Eriksson, and Micheal Ferland.

On the block – Jake Virtanen, Brandon Sutter and Jay Beagle.

Buyout watch – Antoine Roussel.

More likely to move on – Chris Tanev, Oscar Fantenberg and Sven Baertschi

Potential trade options for the Toronto Maple Leafs
