So, is he signing soon or whats up?
These ongoing Nylander threads are crazy how they can just keep going and going and going with no new news lol
I keep thinking when i click on it there will be significant news, but i keep getting tricked!! Lol
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.
13 threads and counting for a RFA.
It’s weird I don’t remember a hold out quite this long in the modern cap era
Why is this surprising to people?
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.
Welcome to Toronto. December 1st we're opening the bidding process for how long Marner and Matthews threads will go.
Lucky number 13
But atleast you know once something does happen, this site will be crashed lol. Basically once you see Error 520, nothing has happened haha
Trouba signed Nov 7th IIRC
So this is what beyond infinity looks like. Boring.
There will be easily 13 threads for this trade once it happens:
HockeyBuzz.com - Eklund - Double Confirmation:Kings and Leafs Discussing Voynov and Nylander (e4)
Kyle Dubas would never trade for Voynov.
Trouba signed on Nov 7th.
Nylander 13?! Are we in Karlsson territory yet?
Second most??? Good one Randy!
You and me both my friend.
I do not believe this rumor, Leafs management wouldn't touch Voynov.
Are you saying that Leafs is the NHL team with most media attention?
