I wonder what his comparables would be if he had his projected season starting on time.

Comparables don't count for Leaf players anyway.

I think there's only one Leafs player that's true for lol

Gretzky had 513 pts in his first 239 games, actually.

The top of the points performance list for first 239 regular season games played (i.e. the number of games Nylander has played) in the salary cap era (2006+):

via Hockey-Reference
PlayerPointsYear StartYear EndPositionGPGAG-EVG-PPG-SHSS%
Sidney Crosby33420062009C2391122227537079214.1
Alex Ovechkin30420062008LW23915814697583122712.9

Steven Stamkos23020092011C2391181126750174215.9
Paul Stastny22620072010C239721544824053813.4
Patrick Kane22420082010RW239741504529068610.8
Artemi Panarin22220162018LW239871356423061714.1
Mitch Marner22220172019C239661565015159711.1

Mitch is tied for 8th with 222! This is just missing his final two games played from this past season (there were two more points to be had for a total of 224). For someone all the pundits kept claiming was too small for the NHL, he's doing more than fine.

Matthews is currently tied for 14th with 205 pts, but only 212 GP so far (pro-rates to 231pts over 239 games, which would bump him to 5th) and is already 2nd in even strength goals behind Ovechkin (his 86 goals would pro-rate to 96.9 ev-goals, which ties with Ovi's 97). I think he's going to exceed that current pace though if his start isn't marred with injury.

Tavares is 15th with 198 (lol Islanders). You can clearly see why Tavares wanted to play here.

Nylander is quite a ways down, but generally surrounded by and still exceeding very good players. Contextually, Willy's working uphill as his first 20 something games were part of the tank drive, and his last 50 something were this past season's fun results.

... and then ask if anyone has been injured in a workplace accident.

You see fellas, those are two pictures of William Nylander. In the one on the left he's looking dapper and composed and saying something fairly anodyne that might win him approval from hockey coaches and traditionalists. In the photo on the right he's got his hair in cornrows and there's goofy hockey player slang, the kind made popular by Canadian TV show Letter Kenny, superimposed on the picture.

The suggestion then is that people using professional networking website LinkedIn are putting forward a composed and business-like image but those same people, when using Twitter, are often far more casual and silly about what they post. The two photos of Nylander are used to illustrate the dichotomy.
