    My guess is he is considering making a move for a rangers dman. Would love to get Skjei on our team. Mcquaid also a good option. Who else could he be scouting?

    McQuaid makes sense. Really he’s just blocking DeAngelo from getting ice time. Long shot he’s scouting Shattenkirk?

    Shattenkirk is a great player but not what we need. We already have 2 great offensive dman but desparately need a hard nosed stay at home type dman

    Maybe he’s scouting a Flames defenseman? Hamonic?

    Honestly, that's a fantastic trade. I don't know if the difference between Andersen and Lundqvist is Nylander though.

    The rest can be sorted with picks I guess. In 3 years Lundqvist,marleau cap hit is removed by Toronto and then they can afford to pay Matthews and Marner a bit easier. Rather than what Nylander wants beyond 3 years from now.

    doubt it. Calgary has playoff aspirations and a weak bottom pairing with no one to effectively fill hamonics spot

    Hamonic is injured.

    Only Flames D I could see moved are Stone and Brodie, but I don't see it happening with 2 rookies already in the lineup

    and no starting goalie and nothing to show for nylander and anderson. That would be a very unneccesary trade for the leafs. Andersen is a great goalie and on a terrific contract. No point upgrading him very slightly at the cost of losing nylander

    Yeah...no.

    Nylander+Andersen for Lundqvist is crazy.

    Assume it would be contract+3rd for McQuaid.

    Seriously wondering, with all these posts over the years of NHL executives being seen at other arenas how many have actually followed with a substantial move?

    Leafs aren't trading Andersen+ for Lundqvist. We aren't putting significant assets in the way of cap-space and assets into a soon to be 37-year-old goalie making 8.5m a year.

    Exactly, keeping Nylander in Europe that wont sign obviously is better for TML.

    Honestly tho I believe TML is scouting Skjei and that scares me.

    Skjei could be a good add for any team.

    I don’t want to believe the Nylander rumors but it does seem like a big coincidence.

    1. Nylander / Zuccarello rumor
    2. Dubas to Europe to see Nylander
    3. Dubas personally scouting the Rangers

    There is definitely some smoke here.
