However, the team's focus appears to be set on re-signing impending UFA forwards Tyler Bozak and Colton Orr, and defenseman Mike Kostka, while winger Clarke MacArthur and defenseman Ryan O'Byrne are likely to walk.
MacArthur, 28, is wrapping up a two-year, $6.5 million contract. He could see his annual salary climb over the $4 million mark, which might place him on the outs in Toronto.
Center Nazem Kadri and defensemen Cody Franson and Carl GUnnarsson, all RFAs, are also priorities for Leafs GM Dave Nonis, though one RFA isn't expected to be back next year.
Gritty forward Leo Komarov is expected to return to the KHL next season and re-join Dynamo Moscow.
According to Finnish sports reporter Emil Elo, Komarov intends on joining Dynamo. Komarov is also part of the Finnish national team.
Meanwhile, Bozak might also be walking as a free agent next month if he isn't able to come to terms on a new deal with the Leafs.
It has been widely reported that Bozak is seeking a long-term contract worth in the vicinity of $5.5 million per season, which could make him the highest-paid forward on the Leafs, tied with fellow center Mikhail Grabovski.
The Leafs are not believed to be interest in signing him to anything over $4 million per year, according to one team source.
