William Nylander will not be signed and will sit out this season. You heard it here first. Toronto will trade his rights in the off-season.

They are rapidly running out of time. The impasse appears to be insurmountable. I’ve always liked Nylander until now. I feel this was a childish move motivated entirely by greed and individualism. Not a team player at all. He has been a distraction to the organization. Leafs can still trade him before trade deadline. And that just might happen. My thought is we unload him on a non-contender for a first and prospects/ players. Since Nylander can’t contribute to the team’s success this year, we hope the receiving team tanks and that 1st becomes a lottery pick.

Its really not much of a suprise if he doesn't sign. if ya woulda made this statement, maybe early November. woulda been more of a discussion.

3.) 01 Dec 2018 12:36:02
Are they really just going to let him sit all season? An asset like that sitting out an entire season is huge.

4.) 01 Dec 2018 14:51:31
I’ve said all along I believe he signs and I still do. I always assumed a 6 year deal, I’m thinking they will announce a shorter term today. I don’t believe he sits the year, but maintain what I’ve said all along which is IF they don’t get him signed, I’d much rather him sit the year than get fleeced in a deal at the last minute. Trade him at the draft when you know where everyone is picking and 30 teams could potentially get involved instead of 3 or 4.

5.) 01 Dec 2018 14:57:06
letting him sit is better than over paying him.

hes not an 8 million dollar player, period. he's done nothing to prove he's even as good as pasta (which he isnt) he doesn't deserve more money than pasta.

im pretty sure its his dad whos telling him not to sign.

bugs me because if he really does think he's an 8 milion dollar player, then sign the bridge and bet on yourself.

6.) 01 Dec 2018 16:33:47
Ovie. He is the same player as Pasta was at the time of him signing his contract. Numbers all similar thru the 1st 180 games. Yes Nylander got to play with Matthews, but Pasta got to play with Marchand and Bergeron.

7.) 01 Dec 2018 16:53:35
Bob McKenzie has been active on it this morning and says trade is a real long shot, bridge makes most sense for Nylander but says he believes Nylander won’t ealk away from $40+ mill and will sign today or sit the season. Nylander stil won’t have arbitration rights for another 2 accrued seasons of he let's today’s deadline pass. He has so little leverage it’s crazy it’s gone this long. In Bob we trust.

8.) 01 Dec 2018 17:18:58
I think it's kinda sad a highly skilled young player may miss a season in hockey's greatest league. seems like a waste.

Is he able to sign with lower leagues? Over in Europe, Is he kinda owned by he NHL as well.?

9.) 01 Dec 2018 17:52:47
Yes he can sign anywhere he’s not under contract.

10.) 01 Dec 2018 18:29:40
Ya. thanks VB, I kinda had a brain fart. I shoulda known that.

11.) 01 Dec 2018 18:35:46
Toronto just owns his NHL rights, correct? So he could go play in Europe if he wanted to or does he also need Torontos permission for be loaned out?

This hold out is the longest of its kind in the CBA era.

12.) 01 Dec 2018 20:46:23
He can play in Europe if he wants. However earopean league play will never count as an accrued seasons even though the CBa says ‘pro seasons’ to meats arbitration rights and UFA.

13.) 01 Dec 2018 22:08:30
Well DakeGa, you heard it here first: you were wrong.

14.) 01 Dec 2018 23:39:52
Haha, that was more possible of happening than every trade rumor posted on here. Sparked some debate however. Looks like he is a Maple Leaf for this year as they push for a cup run with his front loaded contract. This is going to be the way of the future for signing players.

Chicago: Patrick Kane, Corey Crawford
Columbus: Sergei Bobrovsky, Alex Wennberg, Pierre-Luc Dubois


1.) 01 Dec 2018 03:48:28
Obviously all the players mentioned here are outstanding. Each and every single one of these guys. Some of them are/ were the best in the world at their position. Dubois is looking more and more like he will be an elite talent at his position, and in my opinion, is the reason Columbus doesn’t make this trade. Dubois is on the rise, while Kane is on decline. That $10.5M that Kane makes May also be a big deterrent for Columbus.

Winnipeg: Matthieu Perreault, 3rd round pick
Chicago: Duncan Keith, Chicago retains 1.54 of Keith's salary

Duncan goes home to Winnipeg.


1.) 29 Nov 2018 21:02:50
no way. keith could get way more than perreault and a 3rd. especially with salary retained.

2.) 29 Nov 2018 21:16:58
The trade is fair but the Jets say no because Keith has too long a term left for a 35 year old on the down slope of a great career.

3.) 29 Nov 2018 21:59:13
No from the Jets. They wouldn't want any part of Meeting Keith's contract.

Toronto: William Nylander
Chicago: Connor Murphy, Alex Fortin, Dennis Gilbert


1.) 28 Nov 2018 20:17:02
Salary cap. As much as i'd love to have Willy in chicago, the cost to sign him would be too much without taking a salary back.

2.) 28 Nov 2018 21:10:44
William Nylander : 4 yrs at 7 million
Connor murphy : 4 yrs at 3.85 plus fortin and Gilbert is about 5.6 million.
Gives Toronto 1.4 extra cap space for marner and matthews.
Chicago loses 1.4 of 3.2 cap space leaving 1.8 approx.

Chicago trades or dumps Kruger, manning, rutta, kunitz for 8.28 million plus the 1.8 for over 10 million for next year.

No cap issues here so far. Biggest issue is Toronto might want bigger names or better prospects.

3.) 28 Nov 2018 21:38:11
so DaKeGa, you're saying we'd need to essentially trade out 7 players overall, to be able to resign one player long term, and from what i've read and heard online willy is looking for 8+. pretty sure if we were looking at 6-7 the deal would be done by now.

4.) 28 Nov 2018 21:51:12
It’s just that easy to trade or dump $9 mill worth of dead weight? Lol if that’s the case, no team ever has cap problems.

5.) 28 Nov 2018 22:22:38
3 players and 1.4 cap space lands a top line winger for toews, saad line.
Kunitz won't be resigned at 40 years old next year and is only there to help mentor rookies and achieve 1000 games played. 1 million will get any player whom will fill his role on 4th line.

Kruger 2.78 next year will not be resigned opening up cap space for another player whom can be signed at 1 million to fill his role.
Rutta will not be resigned either and a Boqvist, Raddysh, or Dahlstrom can step up and take his place.

Manning can be traded for a draft pick or something also.
Chicago does not need any of these week links and all can be replaced by young bodies whom can play for a total of less than 4 million opposed to the 8.28 these bodies are signed for. With a 1.8 cap space plus 8.28 equals 10, sign 3rd, 4th liners for less than 5 of that and you still have 5 plus million for debrincat to sign or get a defensive defenseman.

That is hardly an issue to do for the blackhawks in the off season. Sikura, Highmore, Boqvist, and Dahlstrom are already in the system to replace these bodies if needed.

6.) 28 Nov 2018 22:38:35
Next Season;
Toews, Saad, Nylander
Strome, Kane, Debrincat
Sikura, Kahun, Perlini
Kampf, Johnson, Martinsen
Hayden spare

Keith, Boqvist
Seabrook, Jokiharu
Forsling, Dahlstrom
Davidson spare

Still leaves Anisimov to trade in offseason. Not an unthinkable transition.

7.) 29 Nov 2018 21:26:52
wtf are those lines? if anything i'd have this for that line up

Calgary and Vancouver say no to giving up draft picks.
Minnesota is not giving up Dumba.
Carolina would do this for a 2nd round pick.
