I don't really know his game at all.

Is he someone the Leafs should be targeting?

He's a left-handed shot-blocking defensive defenseman... as goodish as Hunwick but younger. I honestly hope we don't bother.

He's a good player but not really what the Leafs need.

I'm really hoping that Borgman starts to take some leaps in terms of development in his own zone.

If Pittsburgh is willing to eat some cap/basically give him away, sure - and that's pretty unlikely. If they want anything resembling fair value? Not really worth it for the Leafs. He's an upgrade to the 3rd pair, maybe.

No.

I might consider it if they gave us a decent pick to take him.

You don’t take on a 28 year old who might be your 7th best dman when you’ve got young players already sitting and a log jam in the minors.

If they acquire a dman they have to be a legitimate tangible upgrade on what they already have.

Also, not sure that’s a source I’d be running with. Friedman is solid.
