Why does everyone wanna trade Nylander. I mean tbh he's prob the least likely to be traded considering what value he brings and how much he makes. He was on pace for 37 goals and over 70 points and he is on the first power play unit but he did play second or third line last year for most of the year. If anything I would trade some guys out to make room for other guys.


Any team
2021 2nd

Lineup next year
Hyman Matthews Nylander
Mikheyev Tavares Marner
Simmonds Kerfoot Veesy
Roberson Thornton Spezza

Riley Brodie
Muzzin Holl
Lehtonen/ Sandin Bogosian

The only way I trade Nylander is if I were getting a defesmen that is at least as good as Tory krug. Now I know that sounds crazy and I may be overvaluing Nylander but honestly I think he can easily be a 40 goal 40 assist man and rack up about 80 points a season. And if Tavares can get roughly 40-45 and Matthews can get 50 and Marner can get 30 then that's around 165 goals from the big four so stop trying to trade Nylander.

I actually think your undervaluing him lol. I don't want Krug.

I agree he's more valuable than Marner though. That said though, he's most likely to be traded of the big 4. If the cap kept rising to say, 92 million you can get a good deal for Marner. As is though, so much uncertainty, only teams that send you something are a team that needs to send back a cap dump. How does that make the team better though?

Everyone is trading him because they feel one of the 4 has to be moved.

Marner- atleast 2.5 million over paid ergo leafs won't get full value on marner.

Tavares- nmc

Matthews- the prize for Matthew's would have to be so overwhelming that no team will meet the asking price, we are talking top tier defenseman and a centre just under his value, so we are talking a hedman and point type deal. Other possibilities would be like mcdavid and the leafs add, draisatl nurse and 2 firsts. So no team will meet the leafs requests.

Nylander- affordable contract, puts up good points, should get above fair value.

A little optimistic are we LGM?

Nobody is “trying” to trade Nylander. Only the GM can do that.

All anyone is going on here is making proposals of trades they would like to see.

By your logic, I’ve been “trying” to get Dubas fired for over two years. That’s not true at all. I’ve been criticizing him, heavily, and admittedly somewhat unfairly at times, because it’s fun and I enjoy it. I have been hoping he gets fired (and it sure looks like they are preparing to do so), but I haven’t called the Leafs front office and said anything to them. No emails or letters or petitions calling for him to be fired. Because I’m not “trying” to get him fired. Same as no one is “trying” to trade Nylander.

Hoping and wishing a player with 9 hits to his name last year, and only 76 hits in his entire career, gets traded is a far cry from “trying” to trade him.

I think I throw more hits in my non contact league then that.

Nylander is singled out for that reason HL and Randy which I understand. On a team full of physical players though Nylander would be a 40+ goal scorer guaranteed. He may be one dimensional in that he doesn't lay the body at all but that doesn't take away from his value. To me it's just that Dubas assembled a team of "Nylanders" so we notice him more.

LL. Exactly. Too much of one type of player. imo
The crowd goes wild whenever (Nylander especially) battles for a puck physically because it is so rare people get excited. Whatever happened to battling for pucks and wanting it more than the other guy is just part of the game?
I am not expecting bone crushing hits all the time or anything close, but I have a hard time imagining some of these guys looking in the mirror after the game and saying "yep, gave it may all tonight. Battled hard. "

That's where win at too RLF. When Gardiner left it just became Nylander. In all honesty I didn't hate Gardiner either. He isn't a top D-man by any stretch but I called it from the start. Dubas traded Kadri for a worse version of Barrie.

Dubas wants these types of players. Tampa has these types. It just can't be an entire team of Marner and Nylander.

He is from just outside the city.

He didn’t have much choice without arbitration rights. What was he going to do? Hold out and get traded? He’s not a “stud” like Nylander.

Nylander suits 80s hockey just fine.
