    Cliff Notes from past 8 threads:

    • Nylander is greedy
    • It is his agent who is a pos
    • Hockey Insiders are a joke
    • Dubas is low-balling him
    • Like father (Michael Nylander) like son
    • Trade him for a D
    • Nylander is replacable
    • Nylander is not replaceable
    • HF-Posters also have hockey insiders of their own and they "hear" a lot of things
    • Nylander haters hating
    • Nylander lovers loving

    and continue........

    (did I miss anything else)?

    @PromisedLand That about sums it up.

    Honestly, until something concrete comes out I don't find there to be much point in joining in this conversation anymore. It's just piles of nothing.

    I think Dubas should look for trading partners, see if they have a really good asset to offer (a #1 D). Then allow Nylander, and his camp, to negotiate with those teams.

    Give Nylander the option to stay, or go elsewhere for whatever better offer he gets.

    Flame away! LOL

    So the Leafs should offer Willie the #1 Centres job, the McD contract and trade Matty for scraps

    Personally I want to bridge 3x5. Good cap hit through the crunch, 3 years to see if this core can do it.

    After that-
    Kadri is only one year from UFA- tradeable to make room for a Nylander contract
    The Matthews and Marner contracts will be recent enough that we could make a "team max" stick
    If we can't work out a deal he'll be worth a lot in trade.

    I get Dubas trying to leverage now for a long term deal, but an easy bridge is the batna here, not trading him.

    Eight pages of the same comparable arguments and Nylander hating. Is there really anything else to say that hasn't been said ten thousand times?

    I do get that this is a song and its clever,

    but surely no one is giving up on a leaf player over a contract dispute? surely?
