All right I will jump on the trade Nylander bandwagon.

Minnesota: Dumba
Toronto: Nylander

I think a 1 for 1 trade would work out and it fits the needs of both teams. I do admit I see Toronto play more than Minnesota. Can you let me know if this is fair or do I rate Nylander too high?

It comes down to simply Minnesota just not making this trade. They aren’t going to trade Dumba. As for the value 🤷🏼‍♂️ I think it’s close but with Nylanders demands and dumba locked up long term I’d say Toronto would need to add.

the issue is Dumba is cost controlled for many of his prime years and that makes his value even higher.

I think mcjesus is dead on. Value wise they’re close, Willy May even have a tiny bit more, hard to say. But when contract is weighed in, it’s a big no from minny.

McJesus took the words right out of my mouth.

Minnesota is pretty tight against cap and with Suter and Parise’s contracts, will be for a very long time. They need to pinch every penny they can. Last thing they need is to overpay for Nylander on a long term contract.

Everyone loves Dumba. How couldn’t they? He’d look amazing in blue and white. If you’re reading this right now Dumba, then just know that there’s is another place for you if you ever get unhappy in Minnesota, you can always come back to Canada.

Well. this isn't bad . I think it all depends on what Nylander would sign for. Dumba is signed already, and looks like a good deal fo both player and team.
I think I read that Nylander wants 8 million? Did I read that right? he's more like 6.5.

What if they sing him for a 4 year x 4.5 mill. He would still have a year of team control before UFA. Minnesota would Have a cap savings of 1.5 mill. (Dumba 5years x 6 milll) . Or at that price does Toronto keep him?

Not a chance Minnesota would consider it. Leafs would need to add.

Nylander is asking for $8/ 8.5M long term. And you're suggesting he would sign for $4.5M for 4 years? That's laughable. I understand the idea of then still
Being able to cash in on a long term contract then still, but man, That's just funny. Why wouldn't he just do that in Toronto where he apperently loves then?

Of course Toronto keeps him at $4.5 mill lol if he was willing to play 4 more years at $4.5 mill they would have signed it LAST July 1st.

I thought of 4.5 over 4 years because that is where Kadri is at. I also think Kadri is a better player right now than Nylander is. I don’t think any GM thinks Nylander is worth 8 mill or they would offer sheet him. I wonder if this will turn into a Mike Peca situation.

Kadri May be a better fit layer than Nylander but probably not ceiling. However that Kadri deal is 2 years old and he has outperformed it each season. It’s not true value.
