Nifty Willy!  Superb hand/eye coordination here.

The importance of Nylander:

QuoteEven when some stars are off or injured, others are still kicking around to make up part of the difference. What the Leafs seemed to understand, too, even if they would have preferred to keep the final number on Nylander's second deal down, is how special Nylander's skill set is, how difficult those abilities are to find if you don't have them and how, with his 24th birthday still lying ahead in May, Nylander is still so young in his career, still getting better all the time.

On the other hand, this could be a perfect time to trade him. You'd likely get value back, instead of simply shedding dollars like a month ago.

Before considering something like that let's see if he can continue this run of good play when the defenses really tighten up later on.

We need some nice things on defense, and the cap room to keep them.

You don't trade a Nylander or a Marner.  You can trade a Kerfoot, or a Hyman or a Moore etc.

I always thought so.  Why did even both to draft them if you're not going to keep their skill set? 

It's up to Dubas to brainstorm about the back-up goaltending situation.  Didn't Babcock prefer McElhinney over Sparks?  I'd take McBackup any day.

He went with Sparks based on age, that he was lights out in the Calder Cup and looked like the heir apparent to the back up job.  Mcbackup was just that, coming off a career year and was not expected to play at that rate forever and although he had a decent year with Carolina last year he has not been great with Tampa this year.. I would have made the same move as Dubas, now let me look into my crystal ball again.

I remember I kept saying that Sparks was the choice and that he had to gain way more experience by playing more in order to improve himself.  Well, the Sparks experiment didn't work out, which is why looking at the crystal ball, it would have told me that. 🧐🙂  Even so, at the time, I applauded Dubas for standing his ground and going with Sparks.

Agree with everything you said here. Hindsight is a wonderful thing tho.
