The Toronto Maple Leafs are having easily their best stretch of the season, winning a season-high six games in a row after Thursday's win over Vegas, and then making it seven on Saturday against Colorado.

The Toronto Maple Leafs may have lost their winning streak last night, but they remain one of the hottest teams in the NHL as the NHL Trade Deadline approaches.

After their hot streak, the Leafs now only sit six points back of Boston and Florida for top spot in the Atlantic. The Leafs have two games in hand over Boston and and one on Florida, making the final quarter of the season extremely exciting, as the winner of the Atlantic Division has a much better chance of making it through to the Stanley Cup than a Wild Card team.

With the trade deadline looming, it's safe to say the Toronto Maple Leafs have cemented themselves as buyers, though they were always going to be buying, as long as they were in a playoff position, and that is now all but guaranteed.

The Leafs are looking strong for the stretch run and look ready to add a key player or two to bolster the roster for the playoffs.

The Leafs have a solid prospect pool, but they need to use it wisely, as not all of their up-and-comers are expendable.

Here are 3 prospects the Leafs should not consider trading come deadline time.
