Nylander holding out was a win to Leafs fans, I don't think they want to trade him so soon.
Also, Nylander has said that Dubas told him as long as he is the GM, he's not being traded. Nylander also said he didn't want a bridge deal because he wanted to be there long term. Babcock also said that he thinks Nylander will retire a Leaf.
None of that is my words or opinion, just actual quotes from other people.
Nylander is locked up and everyone is happy, so I don't think they will trade him according to what they have all said.

2.) 08 Dec 2018 12:46:43
I didn’t think it would work until I saw the 6th round picks being exchanged, that totally sealed it.

3.) 08 Dec 2018 16:23:38
How much do we really need Slavin anyway? Sure, he’s a great player, but Leafs have one of the best GA in the league. We have a couple outstanding young prospects in Sandin and Liljegren. I don’t see the benefit in trading away our 1RW for a guy that would only marginally improve our defense.

4.) 08 Dec 2018 16:50:12
LeafsGM, yes the Leafs aren't as bad as some think defensively, but there numbers are disguised by the play of Andersen in net. I would put there defense mid pack in the league. Slavin would most definetely improve the unit as a whole by alot. If he could shift over to the right side (not sure if he could or not), then I would trade for him in a heartbeat.

5.) 08 Dec 2018 17:50:38
If Slavin could slide over to right side, would be an interesting idea. There’s a lot to like about Slavin, especially his contract. Having him on the team would give us at least three defenders in top 50.

Andersen is playing fantastic. Think he has a shot at the Vezina? Would be nice if Leafs take home some hardware this year?

6.) 08 Dec 2018 17:50:50
LeafsGM and doncherry both make good points. The D is better than a lot gave them credit for, but could still obviously be improved. However at this point I’d be much more willing to fill in around what we have using guys from the Marlies and draft picks for short term help than subtract good to great players from our current roster.

If we can get another middle of the pack solid Dman to help with the run and keep this forward group together, I’d rather. Liljegren is progressing and Sandin looks like he’s going to be a good NHLer rather quickly. Insanely high hockey IQ and very mobile. Already exceeding expectations by playing big minutes in the AHL when original thought was return to the OHL or Sweden. How bad would it look trading Nylander and him for a Dman and then have a log jam back there in a year?

I was good with trading Nylander for a Dman if someone else was willing to give him $8mill or whatever lol but at less than $7 mill, keep him, pay the big bonuses, try to win with him and revisit it ina cpl years to address needs or free up space. He will be worth far more with 4 years term left at $4-5 mill salary per year.

7.) 08 Dec 2018 21:02:25
Good one Mike.

8.) 08 Dec 2018 21:55:11
William Nylander "Kyle has old me multiple times that as long as he's here he's not going to trade me"

Babcock on Nylander "We think Willie is going to be a career Leaf"

Looks like they plan to hold onto him.

9.) 09 Dec 2018 07:04:41
And Leafs also say no because you just can't treads anyone with insane hockey IQ who is also very mobile.

You won't be able to trade Nylander in a few years now apperently unless Dubas and Babcock are gone. You own that contract for the meantime. Some fans say Nylander is the 7th best player now making more than some teams best players and Marchand, Bergeron, Pasta, McKinnon, Hall, Monahan, Gaudreu.
Kinda crazy when Tavares makes more and Mathews and Marner are yet to come.

10.) 09 Dec 2018 14:44:02
Listen to Kyle Dubas’ explanation of what Nylander says. It will change your mind. Or just don’t let facts get in the way of a narrative again, whichever way you want to go with it.

11.) 09 Dec 2018 15:09:36
“The discussion that William and I had had a couple of times was a fear of his … that he was being signed to be traded, ” Dubas told Bob McCown and Stephen Brunt on Prime Time Sports. “And my discussion with him, I just affirmed with him that that was not our intention whatsoever.

“Our intention was that as long as I was here that I saw him as a part of the Toronto Maple Leafs”

PK Subban was told habs had ‘no intentions’ of trading him. Jeff Carter was told the same thing in Philly weeks before his 11 year contract with a NTC kicked in and he was sent to CBJ, cross sports over and Demar Derozen was told the same thing. However intentions change when situations change or opportunity arises. When the cap gets tight or a better piece can be added that you didn’t think would be available, you do what’s best for the team.

Use common sense. I can come up with more examples if you just want to be a dick still. Or for once, you can take it as anyone else would and feel like you learned something.

12.) 09 Dec 2018 17:36:20
From what I remember bergevin said no he wasn't trading subban but wasn't it before the upcoming trade deadline? I know a week or so before the trade he said he wasn't shopping subban but he was listening to other GMs when they called. I see your point though it doesn't matter what's said during negotiation things change and opinions change if lthe leafs wanted to trade him tomorrow this wouldn't stop them. Just like if someone offered nylander 20 mil a year and he could get out of his current deal he'd change his mind too.

13.) 10 Dec 2018 00:04:12
Yupp will continue to bring this up in case one day the leafs trade Nylander. Then he can bash Dubas and Babcock. He likes to look for any negative to make himself feel better about his one man team. I wonder who the 7th best player in Edmonton would be? Kind of funny when you think about eh? Is there an update on Lesnar, we never got to hear the cool story?

14.) 10 Dec 2018 05:41:04
@habby, yes. That’s the point i was making. Things change and words are chosen carefully. “I have no intentions of trading you” is an extremely momentary term. “I had no intentions of trading you until a legit top pair RHD like Alex Pietrangelo is apparently on the market” lol.

Toronto Maple Leafs:

•) William Nylander

•) 4th Round Pick 2020

Carolina Hurricanes:

•) Jaccob Slavin.


1.) 06 Dec 2018 17:40:31
It would need to be Nylander and Liljegren or Sandin to get you into the game. Top pairing defenseman aren't cheap.

2.) 06 Dec 2018 17:40:52
They won’t teade Nylander yet and also Carolina won’t want to have to pay him all this up front money he’s owed.



05 Dec 2018 09:53:47
Columbus Blue Jackets:

•) Sergei Bobrovsky

•) 6th Round Pick 2020

Pittsburgh Penguins:

•) Matt Murray

•) Bryan Rust

•) 3rd Round Pick 2020.




01 Dec 2018 19:07:09
Toronto Maple Leafs - William Nylander

Carolina Hurricanes - Jaccob Slavin, 3rd 2019.


1.) 01 Dec 2018 21:34:57
Would think take out the 3rd and leafs add.

2.) 02 Dec 2018 01:07:46
Toronto would be adding, not Carolina.

3.) 03 Dec 2018 12:59:42
Carolina won't be adding a pick or anything to Slavin to get Nylander with no contract.



14 Oct 2018 16:52:30
Montreal Canadiens:

•) Brendan Gallagher

•) 1st Round Pick 2019

•) 2nd Round Pick 2020 if Nylander Ressigns

Toronto Maple Leafs:

•) William Nylander.


1.) 14 Oct 2018 17:33:36
No from Montreal. They shouldn't trade their 1st.
What do you mean by "if Nylander resigns"? Lol. They going to trade for him when he's not signed then just not sign him? That's funny.

2.) 14 Oct 2018 17:40:28
Habs wouldn't do gallahger straight up so ahhhhhh no!

3.) 14 Oct 2018 17:53:44
That condition is useless because if he’s not signed, they don’t even touch this. They wouldn’t give up a player like Gallagher just to talk to Nylander, definitely not Gallagher and a 1st!

4.) 14 Oct 2018 19:39:20
Lol wouldn't trade him up straight up? You sure about that?

5.) 14 Oct 2018 19:49:34
@ unsportsmanlike yeah 100% sure you seem to forget gallahger is already on a good contract.

6.) 14 Oct 2018 20:17:25
Unsportsmanlike, this what he’s become. He is now the habs VBB lol he’s just going to say outrageous one sided things assuming he’s fighting the good fight. Lol.

7.) 14 Oct 2018 20:42:50
Ok mr high and mighty jim if the situation was reverse you woulldnt do it either. Gallagher at 4 mil less for about the same production. Yeah I must be a real dick. Show some class for a change man.

8.) 14 Oct 2018 21:16:37
Gallagher brings so much more then points although he does contribute in both goals ( 30 goal scorer last year) and points. he's also a huge leader for habs and play a gritty fast pace game.

9.) 14 Oct 2018 21:20:04
Same production?! Lol Gallagher, 26 years old, is in his 7th NHL season and has never broke 60 pts. Nylander, 22 years old, has had 2 NHL seasons and has never not hit 60 pts. You’re embarrassing yourself. Have a nap and clear your head. Come back when your not so cranky.

10.) 14 Oct 2018 21:25:04
Fight fight fight. Haha. You two are fun.

11.) 14 Oct 2018 21:41:43
BoomBoom. I agree with you. I like the way Gallagher plays, I think he does wear his heart on his sleeve and teams need that. But saying he’s worth more than a 22 year old with a way higher ceiling is not close to reality.

12.) 14 Oct 2018 22:16:51
Nylander hasn't ever come close to scoring 30 goals that can go either way. and at 4 mil less I'll just keep gallahger thank you. Go try and convince someone who doesn't know how this works lol.

13.) 14 Oct 2018 22:54:44
Darcy tucker went 100% every shift for the leafs. Was a great team guy. Between the age of 26 and 32 he had 4 20+ goal years, hit 28 once, broke 60 pts, all things similar to Gallagher (except the 60 pt thing) . But he wasn’t going to be traded straight up for a young star forward lol role players don’t have the same value as young guys with high end skill and potential. And it’s more a young mans game now then it ever was then, so the gap between is even wider.

14.) 14 Oct 2018 23:13:07
We'll at least tucker was better then joey crabb I guess. Next time you take a stroll down memory lane go alone.

15.) 14 Oct 2018 23:36:17
And again who did tucker play with? And who does gallahger play with? lol you just can't get it can you. It was a good try when you were trying to say brown scored 20 goals as a 3rd/ 4th liner if I hadn't known the difference I would have had to say yeah your right jim, brown is great.

16.) 15 Oct 2018 00:46:10
You can say whatever you want. Look at the numbers, age and price. Paul Byron is worth exactly the same as Connor Brown, which is very little.

17.) 15 Oct 2018 05:00:33
Yes I intend on saying whatever I want.

18.) 15 Oct 2018 05:39:34
Lol 😂.

19.) 15 Oct 2018 11:28:41
toronto would do this every day of the week. a forward at a good contract, a potential top 5 pick and a 2nd round pick to boot? what's the incentive for montreal? nylander is not the franchise player to turn that franchise into cup contender. he is very very very good and a good piece to build a core with (along with drouin and domi) but i think montreal would hang up the phone. then again it is bergavin we're talking about, always looking for the big fish trade.

20.) 15 Oct 2018 13:46:11
@pkane. I agree they would do the posted trade. What we were disagreeing on was that Gallagher alone is worth more without the 1st or 2nd round pick.

21.) 15 Oct 2018 14:22:46
Who the F was disagreeing gallahger was worth more then gallahger plus a1st and a2nd lol. You need a break man. I said montreal wouldn't trade gallahger straight up for nylander and I still stand by that 100%.

22.) 15 Oct 2018 15:39:53
That’s what I said lol i agree this is good deal for Toronto. We were disagreeing on if Gallagher alone was worth more than Nylander. You think yes. I think no. Lol read it again ol fella.

23.) 15 Oct 2018 19:39:15
I was talking about the previous comment when you said we were disagreeing on that gallahger alone was worth more without the 1st and 2nd . I never said that, obviously gallahger with a 1st and 2nd is worth more then just gallahger. Lol.

24.) 15 Oct 2018 21:11:12
Read it one more time Habby, and this time take the condescending dick attitude out of it. Then you will understand I was saying you think Gallagher is worth more than Nylander without the 1st and 2nd being included. I never say you think Gallagher is worth more than Gallagher, a 1st and a 2nd lol I don’t say Nylanders name in it, i assume people know who we were talking about but You actually try really hard to make things seem more difficult than they are. It must be exhausting for the actual people in your life.

25.) 15 Oct 2018 22:35:03
I only do this to you jim lol. At least I didn't twist words around and try to make it sound like you said something else completely different I just used what you actually said. Lol have a good night!

26.) 16 Oct 2018 03:30:28
No. That’s exactly what you did lol you knew what I said and pretended I said something else. Gallagher=Nylander Ha!

27.) 16 Oct 2018 05:28:24
That's a much better user name.
