We could just solve this problem by doing what Howard Berger just suggested today: convert Nylander to a defenceman.

I've jokingly suggested that before, and MuchTruculence waxes poetic about it frequently. Gardiner-Nylander would be epic.

Nylander on D, move Andersen up to 3rd line center and convert Gauthier to our starting goalie.  Stanley Cup guaranteed.

Matthews should probably replace Babcock behind the bench and put Babcock in the Carlton costume. Fire the current mascot. Then it will be a threepeat. E5.

Brian Papineau inserted at #1 Center, Matthews to equipment manager and Lou Lamorriello top-4 D. Minimum 8-peat.

So you think you can centre?

Jack Han goes over some key habits Babcock wants to instill in his centres (a la Datsyuk).

These Nylander training videos popped up on reddit.

It's not as circus crazy as Marner's video, but you can see the work he puts into routinely dangling 3 defenders down low. The difference between him and the others in the video (including his brother) is quite obvious (being older and more experienced being only part of the equation).

His ability to alude players along the boards and hang onto the puck is so underrated.

It's those quick 180's that he does in tight, so fast.

TSN re-hires Mike Johnson and immediately starts to make sense again.

I really hope the Leafs are putting the finishing touches on a Nylander contract extension.   With McDavid, Eichel, Draisaitl and Ehlers all done, I'd be happy if they could lock up Willy to $6.5M over the long haul.
