    Saw the other thread locked up. Would be nice to have an idea of what’s going on, yet no one seems to know.

    Starting to turn on Willy a bit to be honest. I really like the guy but this is getting annoying. Am I being irrational?

    I believe his Dad is to blame here, or so I've heard.

    I've forgotten about him.

    If he wants to leave i'm only trading for RHD. Period.

    I heard the leafs are lowballing him. How dare they offer him just north of $100,000 per point

    Wish there was some type of alert for fresh information.
    This thread will no doubt be the same tired thoughts posted over and over.

    I'm assuming this is a coordinated effort to exploit a loophole in the CBA and he will sign next month or maybe even December for an extremely front loaded contract.

    I don't want pieces for him. Willing to trade him + for a more valuable player who will improve the team...not the assets in aggregate

    if you turn on Willie just because of a contract holdout, you kind of have issues and need to step back and regroup, just saying.

    Why would he do that though? In order for that to benefit the leafs it would have to be a front loaded contract, and since Willy has missed time, it’s in his best interest to have the first year be as little as possible

    :laugh: Ok!
    It’s one thing to say I’m irrational, but to say I have issues because I’m frustrated with Nylander?
    Like I said, I really like Nylander. That’s why I’m angry.

    I'm not saying to pay him more than he is worth but unless they give him a no trade clause I don't expect him to take a "winning-team" discount because when a RHD is available hes the first one to go. However, he would be so good for this team and if babs paired him with kapanen and matthews, we'll be hitting 10 goals a night not 6

    Thats only the title name based on the last thread, not based off personal opinion.
    Last thread was full of “me willi” “we don’t need him” talk.
    I’m frustrated with the situation but I wouldn’t take it that far... yet.

    Is it worth not playing for Willy? Doesn’t he lose money every day he’s not signed?

    He loses money every game he doesn't play. When you are a spoiled, greedy 22 year old millionaire it is peanuts though.

    I love Nylander but I have to say that his absence from the roster has hardly been felt...

    At the end of the day he will not lose much salary. Whatever he signs will undoubtedly be as much signing bonus for this year (which doesn’t get pro-rated) and a minimal salary.

    I am pissed at this entire situation. It's also frustrating that nothing is coming out. We don't know ****.

    Can you like... uh... turn water into wine and provide loaves and fishes and **** and just make Willie sign, or is that too much of a miracle even for you?

    Um...Son of God, Sir.

    Still quite a bit of money tho, wonder if it will take that long. This fan base / media would turn on him pretty quick

    Signing in December is a win-win. We pay him more and get a lower cap hit.

    Yeah he isn't gonna get paid from now till december but it doesn't look like he minds

    They front end load his deal and he won't lose much.

    But the AAV is lower.

    He might be kinda helping Dubas.

    Agreed. I'm a fan of Nylander, hope it gets worked out soon. But who knows, the plan might be not to work it out until the last minute as there is apparently some benefit to not signing him until December. Whatever the case, these trade Willie or **** Willie narratives are getting really annoying. He'll be signed and when he is, I'll be happy.

    He will make it back with a signing bonus, he will ask for extra.
