If New York Rangers captain Ryan McDonagh is to be pried out of Broadway, one potential destination is Toronto, as the Maple Leafs are included on the list of teams he'd accept a trade to, Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports.

McDonagh is one of several Rangers rumored to be available as the club embarks on its path to a rebuild, and the Maple Leafs have a clear need to improve their blue line, before Monday's trade deadline.

Besides the Maple Leafs, the Tampa Bay Lightning are also one of the teams reportedly not on McDonagh's no-trade list, according to Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times.

There's no word on New York's asking price, but a player of McDonagh's caliber would likely require numerous high-end assets. The 28-year-old has dealt with injuries this season, but has still managed 26 points in 49 games while averaging just under 24 minutes per night.
