Title: Nylander: “I don’t want him on my team”
Post by: herman on April 14, 2019, 08:23:09 PM
He has so much skill but bobbled the puck a couple of times on the playoffs so bye.

Trade ideas I have in mind:
Roman Polak: RHD, our coach trusts him, hits and stuff, is a man
Erik Gudbranson: RHD, coaches love him, hits and stuff, is a man

Reports had the Leafs pursuing him at the deadline for Brown. Oilers wanted Benning for Brown instead I believe.

If Gretzky gets the Oilers job, Larsson could be a Leaf by the draft.

I was referring to Hall-Larsson trade. Which is what happens when you trade when your talent is having a down year.

He lead the Oilers in goals/points so he wasn't having a down season. That was a Chiarelli blunder and everyone said it was a crappy deal right off the hop.

Hrudey said it during the intermission of Game 2. He pulled up some video of Nylander’s misplays in the first two periods and said “I wouldn’t want him on my team”.

Then he showed the things DeBrusk didn’t get penalties for and declared he would want him on his team.

It's quite clear ex-players hate him. It must be jealousy about how much he got paid. "Back in 1936 young players regardless of skill got paid nothing out of principle". Times have changed and Nylander got the market rate.

People keep talking about trading him...who is reasonably going to want him.  I think a better option is the buyout market.  Buy him out and sign someone with the remaining cap space.  Clearly a better option.

It's interesting to see how these segments ripple through social media and radio call-ins, because most viewers aren't paying attention the way some of us do here, so those iso-highlights and the narrative applied generally shape the majority of the fanbase response.

On his first clip, Hrudey is roasting Nylander for the turnover once he tries to set up at the blueline when the puck slips off his blade, but makes no mention of Nylander turning a surefire icing dump out that was fired thigh high into a controlled entry when he corralled the puck out of the air after dipping low in the zone to support his defense.

I remember that. In all honesty, I thought that was a contextually weird. I mean, he just had a brutal giveaway to give the Bruins a 2 goal lead, and a pretty bad night even before that. I can only assume that babcock was keeping it really light on the bench, so that there was no baggage for the next game. If so, that's really good coaching.

Yeah, was a PPG player when he had someone to play with in Kadri.

He's generating lots more now from center, but those wingers are jokes. Would be neat to see Kadri in Marleau's spot sometime in the future.

Won't argue but people still went after Matthews last year when his wingers were doing nothing. I know it's hard but if his line could pot one next game, it would be huge. He has the best matchup. I, like many here would like to see Moore out with them instead of Marleau. I think that change alone could help a lot. One good thing tho, Willy and Marleau have only been on the ice for 1 even goal against in 5 games and Brown hasn't been on the ice for any even against so they're doing a good job defensively. Having said that Moore hasn't been on the ice for any goals against. Hopefully they can win it tomorrow and then Kadri will be back for the 2nd round.

He has good matchups relative to Tavares/Matthews but is also playing with 24 goals on his wing.

Matthews - 40 gaols
Tavares - 47 goals
Nylander - 24 goals

Hard to put up offense when your line can't score.  They have had a bunch of phenomenal scoring chances and I have actually like the effort out of Marleau/Brown but they just can't finish.

Maybe not exactly as many points as Nylander but Kucherov, Mantha, Gusev, Voracek have within two points of him and then Kakko, Hornqvist, Hischer Hronek and Lander have 7 points each too.

Do you really think beating up on these teams is indicative of anything?

Well, unless they're fans of Team Sweden, why would they be? Even if Nylander was tearing it up, scoring bucket loads of points against grade A competition the people who weren't happy with him last year won't be happy until he starts doing that in the NHL again.

Yup. No issues here either but as far as the tourney goes, he's basically doing it against AHLers so no big deal. I hope it gives him some confidence moving forward to next season and he should keep wearing 88.

never said it was a big deal, I am just saying basically if he didn't score a point in these games he would be ripped to shreds that he cant score against ahl competition etc.. that he is a bum and all. Sure last year was a mess, but Im very hopeful he turns back to near the from before this year, next year and beyond

I would be. I don't think the type of defenceman Dubas would be open to moving Nylander for - someone close to the same age, already shown to be able to perform at a high level in the NHL, etc. - is going to be available this summer. If the Leafs move out a forward for help on the blueline, it's more likely to be a package centered around Kapanen or Kadri.

I'm not sure enough people, including toronto media, are watching these games with enough intensity to make any strong narratives one way or another. This is essentially a relegation tournament with an array of tired and (I'd guess) not fully engaged NHL players.

And I'd be shocked in Nylander got traded because a) you don't sell low and b) dubas said he wouldn't, which Nylander proclaimed at his presser, which I don't believe was ever contradicted.

I will never understand the Nylander bashing, the guy is going to be more than great, the contract in two years will look like a steal especially when you see what they end up playing Marner
To be fair he was horrible this season, by his own standards, so it's understandable. I do think in a year or so the contract will look really good.
