Thanks but no thanks. Other GMs would be throwing anvils not life preservers.

I don't think the Leafs can get fair value under the circumstances. I'm sure every team in the league would like to have Nylander, but at 6.5 per or close to that. Eight mil is dreamland. And Price looks like a more relaxed man. What changed?

That's just it. Teams that could afford KneeLander at 8mil probably don't have what the leafs would want.. not without a salary dump contract that we definitely don't want. If the number is 6.5 it would probably be done already.

only team that makes sense of the 4 listed is the Ducks who have tons of good Dman to spare, the longer we see the Leafs D get owned the more chance they look at trading Nylander for a top Dman.

Canucks do not have a established top Dman, only good prospects, leafs want a established top dman

Islanders dont have a good dman to trade or to spare

No way leafs trading Nylander to sens for anyone.

Tanev of the World Championship team isn't an established d man?

Edler who made an all star game appearance isn't established...

I'd burn my Leafs pajamas if KneeLander was traded straight up for either of them at this point in the careers.

Leafs need good D. Ducks would be a good trading partner. Remember Ducks already lost 2 good D in Vatanen and Theodore.

This is the Leafs problem. They don't want to pay Nylander 8 million (understandably for them) but they also don't want to trade him for less in what they would receive in value of 8 million. For the Leafs part, it is hard to conclude what "fair value " could really be.

There's also fighting the urge to make a trade just to make a trade. What's coming back has to address a need, and whose available to do that exactly?

Leafs won’t be giving him away, but I think they would take fair value right now.

Don't worry; it's not Chiarelli running the show in Toronto.

What the hell could Ottawa offer on D. Zero chance they move chabot, and nobody else is worth nylander.

Problem is the Leafs don’t trade anyone. They won’t get D standing pat & probably lose players to UFA. Dubas can play hard ball & Shanahan can talk about the past Wings but its the now & not back in the day. Willy isn’t taking a shave when nobody else will. 5 or 6 yrs at $7-7.5m i figure is what he would settle for.

Willy isn’t Taylor Hall either or even close.
