    If he doesn't sign in 2 weeks, then I think the trade chatter picks up.

    If I was Nylander I'd be spending my entire day sitting on the couch reading this thread.

    I think it's there now and won't stop all month.

    IMO, if there is a deal it will be at the 11th hour.

    It doesn't work like that in a business where there are established market values and public disclosure of contracts.

    You can't just pay some players (especially the ones who have the least leverage/rights/resume/importance) proportionally more than others because "meh, they want it", while holding out on others, for no understandable reason. If you pay Nylander 1m/year more than he's worth because "maybe he'll earn it eventually", then you're doing at least that for a lot of other players, and suddenly you are running your team at a HUGE disadvantage. You just went and told all of your players that you will pay them favourably for things they haven't done.

    You wouldn't be compromising for the betterment of the team. You'd be destroying the team, and even under the best scenario, you'd be shortening their window considerably. Sometimes holding firm is a team's best move.

    Same, I click hoping for some solid updates. Tell myself I won't come back to see useless chatter, then see the thread and get scared I may be missing something important. Classic case of FOMO.
