    Each contract is different but I think that in some cases if they do agree on a contract they throw money back in. Like a peace offering. No hard feelings.

    A bridge deal now seems like the more workable alternative.

    It's a shame cause Leafs could really field a powerhouse team this year with Nylander plus perhaps even some rentals.

  4. #268
    They may still be able to do that if they sign him to a 3 year deal for around 3.5 to 4 mil, comparable yet less than what Kucherov got. They will still have cap space for rentals for this year.

    Vegas looks nothing like the team they were last year. Dominating speed is not there. Making plays is not there. They played with so much confidence last year.

    That's 2 wins in a row. Getting closer to a Stanley Cup parade.

    - sign him,
    - trade him, or
    - let him sit.

    Trading him may fill the need for a right handed shot d man, but we don't want to see a Hall for Larson kind of deal do we ? It will also deprive us the opportunity to see how potent this offence can be with a full lineup. I hope they can find a way to keep him at least for this year. A bridge deal may work best for the Leafs and they can always trade him later.

    Throw money back in, how does that work? A contract is a contract, no? Aside from performance bonuses, I can't imagine under a salary cap, you can sign a player to a 5 year, $7 million contract for example, then write him a cheque for an extra $10 million.

    Signing bonus?

    The Athletic (paywall) has a terrific article on the Maple Leafs/Nylander situation today.
    It breaks down how his cap hit would be affected by when he signs.

    What timing results in the best situation for a deal to be reached?

    That remains to be seen.
    The way I read the article, the closer to December 1 (deadline for WN to play in the NHL this year),
    the better the cap situation for the Maple Leafs.

    Thanks. That provides a bit of reassurance that a deal can get done.

    Leafs 3rd and 4th lines get on the board for a 6-1 win.

    In almost every game I've seen so far this year, it is obvious that the NHL is, indeed, the NHL ("No Hit League"). I've seen more body contact in figure skating. Great time to be a skilled player.

    The Devils are one of those teams that usually play them well. Nice to see others contribute to the scoring.

    The Bruins will be a big test tonight.
    Yes, that is me with my new whistle

    Agree and like it.

    I am one who enjoys a game where the players who have the talent to play, are able to showcase that talent.

    The game is also faster, players do not stand still as much, passes are faster and plays develop much quicker.

    Youtube has a number of games from previous era's and it is surprising how much the game has changed from a speed and size perspective.

    I also think that the changes that are being taught in the minor and college leagues is finally paying off at the major level. Those players have developed different habits and as they populate the NHL, those attitudes become slowly become the norm (less fighting, headshots, etc.).

    Gone are the days that teams need to have a fourth line of fighters and tough guys. Teams that want to win cannot afford to lose a line that could otherwise feature a player who can skate and score.

    Besides, the players of today are big and tough. These guys want to win and they realize that the perceived old style of yesteryear is not going to win them championships.

    Just my humble opinion.
    Yes, that is me with my new whistle

    Well, lookie here. Montreal just 3 pts behind Toronto with same number of games played and the powerhouse offensive Leafs have only scored 4 more goals than Montreal. There's your offense. And they still have Price. 6 of those Leafs goals came yesterday.

    Montreal has a really fast, exciting team this year and they clearly outplayed the Leafs in their one meeting so far. They'll be interesting to watch.
    Having Price doesn't look to be a clear advantage over Anderson's play this past year and a half, though - the Leafs are still winning a number of games entirely on Anderson's back as happened last year.

    Leafs 3rd in win percentage and goal differential behind only TB and Nashville. All without Nylander all year albeit he's only their 6th most important player behind Matthews, Marner, Tavaras, Andersen, and Rielly. You could say Tavaras was the upgrade to Nylander on the team. Nylander may have more offensive skill but no coach in their right mind would counter Crosby with him.
