If the NHLPA gets involved with lupul

Hyman Matthews Nylander
Marleau kadri Brown
JVR bozak marner
Lupul Moore Komerov

Sorry Martin, it's been fun. Lol on top of that there will be a trade. Leafs can't afford another 5.25 cap hit. This could get messy. Trade lupul for a conditional 6th if we can. We get the pick if he plays more than 50-60 games.

Based on some recent signings, should the Leafs sign Nylander now? And if so, for how much?

My thoughts are 6 for $36M, here are my comparables

Pastrnak signed for 6 for $40M ($6.6)
Horvat signed for 6 for $33M ($5.5)
Wennberg signed for 6 for $29.4M ($4.9)


Pastrnak LW 34G 36A 70P
Nylander RW 22G 39A 61P
Horvat C 20G 32A 52P
Wennberg C 13G 46A 59P

He's definitely less than Pastrnak, but I would argue more than both Horvat and Wennberg. So the 6 for $36M fits here.

I think he will fall between Pasternak and drisaitel probably around 7yrs at $7mill per season. I only say that because he will most likely breakout this year if he does, and scores 40 and 40 he will be looking at 8.5 over 8 years. If not a touch more money. Sign him now to 7 and 7 and it's probably still a massive steal for the leafs.

Lock him up for maximum term. $54 (8y x $6.75) then move him to centre. For those nay sayers he was 8 for 11 on the draw against Ottawa and is better then Bozak defensively. With Marner feeding Nylander and Marleau, record seasons for all 3.

Leafs have the best offensive depth in the league and to give yourself a good chance in the playoffs, that depth is critical so trading players for picks isn't going to work and that's what this management will not do.


And the additions for defence for the team will be through trading picks for them as the team is poised to take a playoff run this year so trading players for picks are in the past, especially players that can and will help the team.

polak got his pto.

I hope he makes it. not many people like him but I do.

Reilly hainsey
Gardiner zaitsev
Carrick polak

all the young gun defensemen will get sent down because of waiver exempt status. they can all move up and down freely.

If polak makes the team. I think our line will be different.

Reilly Carrick
Gard zaitzev
Hainsey polak

Carrick may switch with zaitzev depending on the team so it could also be

Reilly zaitzev
Gard Carrick
Hainsey polak

I believe this because Carrick actually has great analytics and I think management will want to see how he plays in the top 4. May not last but I think they try it out to start the season if polak signs.

It was reported Babcock might go with this lineup

Hyman Matthews Nylander
Marleu Kadri Brown
Jvr Bozak Marner
Martin Moore Komarov.

It was reported yesterday that Babs doesn't know where he is placing Marleau yet.

That was reported by Babs himself.

My guess as to the starting lineup will be:

Hyman, Matthews, Nylander
JVR, Kadri, Brown
Marleau, Bozak, Marner
Martin, Moore, Leo

Marner needs Marleau. JVR played well with Kadri before breaking his foot.
Hyman will continue to dig out the puck and throw it out to Matthews and Nylander, or the D - all game long and he will score more this year.
Brown gets to show just how much he developed last year by feeding his line mates and sniping their returns.

We all have differing but similar views on this but; no matter how you arrange them; just look at the top 9 for this team. Young, fast, and talented; or older, reasonably fast, and talented.

Two elite or quality players on each of the first 3 lines. And a little bit more scoring depth and tenacity on the 4th.

As for the defence:

Reilly, Polak (Yup, he's back for the year, you'll see, and he's cheap)
Gardiner, Zaitsev
Hainsey, Carrick

Depth: Marincin (until traded, then Rosen), Leivo, Fehr (have to give him a chance at least; if not, Kapanen)


Mr. Andersson, McBackup.

i always see people on this site put nylander at center even after babcock has said he will not play center.
so what my question is why everybody places him there?

Agree0 Disagree0
