He's got amazing offensive skills, there's no doubt - but I'm not ready to fall into the camp of 100% accolades without acknowledging a few shortcomings- which my eye test shows a tendency to try to force unnecessarily higher risk plays, virtually zero physicality, and a healthy dose of float - which is easier to manage as a winger, but not down the middle. A ton of this is solved hopefully by coaching and maturity, but I'd bet that if the leafs ever decided to make a move and trade for a franchise D man, they'd part with Nylander vs the other untouchables.

I don't know where the floating comments come from, I don't see that.

I saw it a little bit last year, not floating exactly but he seemed a little unsure of himself without the puck. This year he's looked much better.

They only thing I see wrong with his play at this time is he is trying to set Matthew's up to much. I hope he starts shooting more rather then passing to Matthews

I agree with this.

Pro-rated goals per season (career): 28
He's currently on pace to score 49G this season (114pts). And it doesn't look too unsustainable for him to land somewhere between those two numbers this season (30+).

Willie was floating a bit last year, that is gone this year and good for him. Can't wait to see him develop as he grows into a Man's body.

He's 20 years old and listed as 5'-11" and 190 lbs. I'm a man and he's both taller and heavier than me.

I think he'll be ok.

Same.  He floated a lot last year but he is totally different this year.  He looks very quick too compared to last year.

He will put on 10-15 lbs of pure muscle and then Thor will kill

If William Nylander is Thor, then Matthews is Mjölnir.

Isn't Matthews Captain America? Who says all the right things, does all the little things without being flashy, but gets the job done?

Matt Martin is Hawkeye, in as much as nobody can exactly figure out why he's around or what he supposedly adds.

I think that's more Zach Hyman, as he's part of the main squad. Matt Martin is more like "Generic SHIELD Agent #15," in that he's there, but doesn't really provide anything.
