Lets pour some water on the thought that the Hurricanes are offering Nylander anything at the moment:

Quote
Waddell said he has not spoken to Nylander's agent, Lewis Gross, about a contract, but said the Hurricanes would need to have a contract in place to trade for the winger.

I was very curious what was taking the Toronto media so long to contact Waddell for comments. Pretty surprised about that, assuming it's true that is.

Have they contacted Reimer's mother yet ??

And Brodeur was in a pizza commercial with Luc Robitaille.  Q.E.D.

Hasek also is probably nowhere near as attentive a brother-in-law.

bazinga !!

i don't see this as a crippling blow....there should be a few capable goalies looking for work in a market like Toronto...

Do Borgman and Rosen pack up for Europe now that they have been sent down ?

Pickard looked really good last night...it seems that his low ice time makes him the odd man out...maybe last night will get him more ice time...

Sundin played a lot more playoff games then Tavares. Although I liked Sundin, I always resented how little the Sundin lead squad actually accomplished. Winning means something on a resume.

Leaving aside that I disagree with all of that Lamoriello, who hasn't won a playoff series in years and has been on Long Island for all of 15 minutes, probably isn't the best guy to measure Tavares' impact on the franchise either.

and this will play out when the season starts...Lou's record as GM of the Islanders will speak for itself...

Props to the Leafs management at the time for spinning the situation with that 'Muskoka Five' tripe to ensure the highest performing players at the time took the brunt of the vitriol.

...and this brings us back to Babcock's statement about making it a safe place...

I think Lou had a lot of say while running the Leafs, but it was carefully curated/mitigated by the brain trust for the most part. Now we are seeing him with the Shanashackles off and it is glorious.
agreed...and the "glorious" part is too funny..Lou unchained !!

I'm fully on board with this.  Although, I'd still want some more depth at C.  As of right now, we're at Matthews-Kadri-Nylander-Lindholm.  It be nice to have someone (not Bozak, not Stastny) who can play wing and slide into the middle if an injury occurs- someone better than Marleau at playing the middle at that.  Riley Nash would be nice, but that still might be too big of a contract to hand out.

A guy like Mark Letestu might be a reasonable/cheap option at 4C.

Jay Beagle might fit in as a 4C...
