If I'm a bunch of teams, I am contacting him this morning and willing to fire my coach to bring him in if he wants the position.

St. Louis, Detroit, Anaheim

Toronto.   :o ;D

I find myself wondering a lot lately if all of this is just a big orchestration on the part of the Leafs to exploit a favorable part of the CBA. If Willy gets signed Dec 1st to a 7 (or 8) year deal that pays him the first year as a signing bonus - meaning that no salary was lost by sitting out - then it will be a massive win/win.

Would Dubas be willing to suffer a short term problem (no Willy for 2 months) in order to have a better long term deal and secure him at a more favorable cap hit in years 2 through 7 (or 8)?

I have no knowledge of this at all. Just speculating. But with this Leafs management it should not actually surprise us, though no one would ever come right out and admit it even if it does happen this way.

Someone earlier in the thread ran the numbers, and it was like $400K a year in cap savings.  Seems hardly worth the shenanigans.

Hyrudi is 100% right on Marner.

Another reason Nylander is a gonner.

Sorry to be annoying but what did he say?

Hrudy was talking about what Marner is going to be worth next year.  His estimation was $9-$10 million a year.

So this is going to be my 5th game watched today. Four EPL games watched already, starting at 8:30, then 11:00, 1:30 and finally the 3:45 game. Each one has been better that the previous one, which leads to the pinnacle of the day, this game. Dont disappoint me lads.

Where are you?  Easter Island?

With the Tavares signing, I think the writing was on the wall for Nylander.

Hope everyone is enjoying their 31 mediocre team NHL and the super swell salary cap.

One thing to keep in mind: Nylander is technically a free agent right now. That means his agent is allowed to talk to other teams about a contract. So let's say Carolina wants to acquire him in a trade, there's nothing stopping them from discussing what it would take to get Nylander signed with his agent before a deal with Toronto is made. So I'd guess if Nylander is dealt then the groundwork for a contract with his new team would essentially already be completed.

Right, and we haven't heard a peep about either a possible trade, or a possible offer sheet.  Which leads me to believe other teams have made the initial phone call to Nylander's agent to find out their price, and subsequently hung up the phone.

It's been a well publicized the last guy to miss an entire season due to a contract dispute was Michael Peca in Buffalo. This was before the salary cap era, and the team was just too cheap to pay him and things got personal.   They eventually traded him before the next season began.

Here's an article in the Athletic about the Peca/Nylander situations (if you're a subscriber)

It's November 1st!

We have 30 days and this will all get resolved!!!

a) Nylander signs
b) Nylander is traded
c) Nylander sits out the entire season

Clarification is coming soon!!!

Which is stupid because;

a)I don't think the Leafs are going to come up much more.  I don't think they will suddenly cave to Nylander's demands.

b)A trade will most likely hinge on the other team being able to sign Nylander, I don't think another team will give Nylander what he wants.

c) This is a really stupid choice on Nylander's part if it comes to this.  I can't remember anyone missing an entire season with a contract dispute.

Far from an epidemic but it is happening at some border crossings.

Oh, I'm sure it may be an issue during the current administration but that's a pretty far cry from a lifetime ban. I think it's pretty unlikely a Democrat-led DOJ, or even a fairly reasonable Republican DOJ, would continue to enforce such a policy.

Even then they're turning away people for admitting to smoking pot. Not, as cabber has mentioned, using an OCS charge on a credit card to deny entry.

The power they have is to search financial records without a warrant for non-residence, and that is only if your banking institution keeps any sort of records on American soil. 

I'm not sure which, if any of our Canadian banks keep CC transaction info stored on servers in the US.

So if you have American citizenship, they couldn't search your financial records without a warrant. If you own stock in a company that has anything to do with cannabis, they can refuse you entry into the US. 

I haven't actually heard if any of this is for real or not, might just be scare tactics.
