Hey Burkie, that's not what they were saying about Nylander in the Athletic today, that he looked great at Centre last night.  Hope Kadri is OK but seeing Willie there for a few games won't hurt

Nylander heating up as Marner inevitably cools down will keep the Leafs going.

Good thing we have multiple top-line wingers.

Marner is not yet quite as good as his first three months suggest and is better than these last two months have been. He has had up and down stretches every year of his very young career thus far, but we know he is money in the bank (and on the cap).

Once the pucks start really going in, Nylander will be more widely recognized as the bargain contract.

Or you know, paid accordingly.

Nylander does seem to have his jump back and has for a while. Kid's gotta hit the net, but that's about all there is to complain about.

He's so ridiculously good at lugging the puck and getting into the zone. He's so slick it reminds me a bit of Kaberle.

He's also great on the point as a right-handed shot.

In two years his deal will look like a steal.

they need to unload this albatross of a contract ASAP!! This has gotta go down as one of the worst deals ever. $6.9 for a 20 goal scorer, what are they thinking. He has almost identical numbers as Tyler Ennis who comes in at $650,000.

Ennis    Games     Goals   Assists    +/-     cost     
              47          12          5        -3       $650,000
Nylander 39           5           12      -3       $6.9 per year

LOL, I myself think Nylander is over paid. But he is a good top six player. Ennis is not a top six player on any team.

Step back from the ledge.

I don't think it's unfair to be critical of his game this season so far, and it's funny to me to see the length to which people stat-mine to try to prove otherwise. I was ridiculed with my opinion that his stats were substantially overstated last year as a result of playing with Matthews, and he's done nothing this year but prove my point.

That said, Dubas went into this signing playing the long game, and like him, I'd be far more willing to bet he'll be worth his contract over the duration rather than falling short.

This contract will look like a steal within 1-2 years.
