Somewhat curiously, the name of Toronto Maple Leafs center Nazem Kadri made its way into the rumor mill earlier this season when it was suggested the Leafs would be willing to trade him. That portion of the mill isn't going to stop spinning after Maple Leafs GM Dave Nonis made an appearance on TSN Radion in Toronto on Thursday. He talked about the potential of trades with a couple of the names that have been mentioned with Kadri of course being one of them. So to be clear, he isn't looking to trade Kadri but he sure as heck would if the opportunity presented itself. Not exactly the biggest endorsement a player ever received from his general manager, now is it? But in all fairness, Nonis said that Kadri isn't alone in this regard; they would consider a trade for pretty much anybody if it were the right deal.
