TORONTO - The Maple Leafs will attempt to be buyers as Wednesday’s trade deadline approaches.

That much we do know. GM Dave Nonis confirmed as much on Monday.

The key word here is “attempt.”

Much in the same way that the Leafs would “like” to add an experienced goalie.

Will that be the Flames' Miikka Kipprusoff, who reports suggest the Leafs are still kicking tires on?

Will that be the Canucks' Roberto Luongo, who has a $5.3-million cap hit through the next decade and likely would cost the Maple Leafs centre Tyler Bozak, if not more.

Will that be a lesser light such as the Oilers' Nikolai Khabibulin, who would probably platoon or back up James Reimer?

Or will the Leafs stand pat, either because they are satisfied with the Reimer-Scrivens pairing or because the price for those other names simply is too high?

This much is certain: After years of being sellers, the Maple Leafs are looking to add or, at worst, stay as is.
