"Leadership, compete, character, (Robidas) has all the things we're looking for," GM Dave Nonis said. "People that I know, that Brendan knows, all speak very highly of him. He won't be terribly vocal, but in terms of leading by example, he's a guy we targeted right away." He also gives the Leafs another right-handed shot on the back end.

Stephane Robidas, whose season ended due to a broken right leg, is interested in extending his career.

Robidas was limited to 38 games in 2013-14. The 37-year-old defenseman is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer and Ducks GM Bob Murray didn't seem willing to confirm or deny his team's interest. "He liked it here," Murray said. "Most guys when they come here, they like it here and you can't blame them. It's a good organization. We have great ownership. I'm sure he likes it here, but it's a process over the next couple of weeks regarding the direction we're going. I thought he was getting better every game before the injury. I feel real bad for him because he's a warrior and a character guy, so he'd definitely a consideration. We're evaluating everything. "
