William Nylander's contract impasse is haunting Kasperi Kapanen's dreams

William Nylander's contract impasse is haunting Kasperi Kapanen's dreams

Nylander has 48 goals and 87 assists in 185 games for the Leafs, who drafted him eighth overall in 2014. He's a big part of this team.

The Maple Leafs scored the first two goals of the game. "There's a few easy tests we can do on the ice in 60 seconds and get it solved".

The contract extension will pay him $10.2 million this season and an average of $6.9 million in years two through six.

Nylander's prorated $10.27-million cap hit for the remainder of 2018-19 sees him join Connor McDavid, new teammate John Tavares, Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, Carey Price, Jack Eichel and Anze Kopitar as the only players in the league now with an eight-figure cap hit.

"He likes to compare a team to a band and you have drummers in the band, and he called me the drummer". Hyman's diligence, especially in the offensive zone, puts him in coach Mike Babcock's good side every day.

The Maple Leafs had no interest in trading William Nylander, and though some think otherwise, there will be little interest in trading Nylander any time in the future.

Fans and the media aren't the only ones ready for this whole Nylander contract thing to be resolved.

"I think other GMs in the league can verify it: We prefaced everything with our ambition is to sign this player long term, and that's what we're working toward".

And I am told the Leafs agree with my assessment.If the Leafs can get Parayko for Nylander just deliver the cup to Yonge St.eventually.

"Kyle (Dubas) and (assistant GM Brandon Pridham) and the guys did a real good job in getting that done", Babcock said after a 5-3 win over the Wild.

"We're not just three, four guys unsafe", Tavares said of the Leafs' depth.

The 22-year-old tied his career high in points with 61 last season, scoring 20 goals. "We want him back and that's it". At best, Nylander will play 55 games, so it's quite possible he only reaches the 40 point mark.

It's a massive deal for a player coming off his entry-level contract and one that puts pressure on the 2014 eighth-overall pick because he's now making more money than numerous top producers in the entire National Hockey League.
