Here's some great old Bob Cole calls. Late nineties / early 2000's for the Leafs. Classics.
The Bob Cole: "HE'S IN!.... scORRrrrRRR" old man tremor is legendary.

Best Naz is when he's playing right on the edge but not over. Two straight 32-goal seasons.
He'll be back once this team settles.

Calvin Pickard got rolled on this one.

This one is...

That... may be the most Keystone Cops play I've ever scene. Guy trips over ice and flails around. Other D is lazily like "2-on-1 bro". Jean-Luc beaten low blocker on smoking backhand.

Edit: to be fair I think that patch of ice is cursed. Other guy in 2-on-1 fell down too.

Edit2: thanks for cheering me up after Leafs/Pens Herman.

Who's the next guy on Auston's right from Scandinavia featuring a child's movie tie-in and embroiled in a contract dispute ;D

This year: Free Willy William Nylander from Sweden
Next year: Casper the Friendly Ghost Kasperi Kapanen from Finland
2 years from now: Wall-E Wallace Wallingtons from Norway

Here's Gino Reda with some good insight. This is not about this year. This is about contending for the next decade.

And if things do not work out, Lebrun, over at The Athletic opines:

"Would Carolina be willing to move 23-year-old Brett Pesce, for example? Hes in the first season of a six-year, $24.15-million deal, a cap-friendly contract charging $4.025 million a year for a good, young defenceman who would automatically step into Torontos top four. That would surely appeal to the Leafs. Mind you, its also the same reason budget-conscious Carolina loves the player. But for a talent like Nylander, would Carolina bite?"

My preference would still be to keep Nylander (and I really believe they will), but this is one of the few (maybe only) suggestions that I think makes sense for both sides. Pesce is a very underrated defenceman, especially for the analytically-inclined. He also appears to have been bumped down the line-up a bit with the Hamilton trade.

I think Nylander's the more valuable player, so I'd be pushing hard to get something else included in the deal as well, but it's a good starting point if a trade was the only option.

Agreed. Willy is "more" than just a pure sniper. He's in that special class of being able to make something out of nothing 5-on-5. He's a dynamic winger.

I know! That helli-celly was awesome. And he ended sheathing it ;D

Indeed. But the thing about getting the max the cap allows (around $16.5-mill) means the less cheese to go around and fill out a roster you actually enjoy playing with/for. All the superstars know this. It's why Sid is at $8.7 x forever and Connor kept his number where he did. I'd be very surprised if Auston and Mitch maxed out for this simple reason.
