LeBron James only had 9 points in his Lakers DEBUT Vs Nuggets. Hopefully he shakes off his summer rust

Carrick is the first casualty of our crowded depth situation... gone for a draft pick.

Reports coming in that Nylander has asked for a trade. If true, he won't be back.

Where u gettinvg these reports?

It's his agent, Brian Burke in a recent interview said he has dealt w the same agent with johnny gaudreau.
The agent asks for the moon, but once the player starts losing money, he comes down in price.

I say deal will get done tomorrow.

Hold on John.... you said Nylander would be signed for the first game? You said Babs knew it was going to happen because he doesn’t blow smoke... ? .... you said a lot of... stuff....

We will see, won't we? My guess is we lose Nylander , he's already lost in some sense.

The large gap in perception of worth is concerning. If Nylander prices himself too high (and a contract is signed soon) or this drags on too long creating animosity... it could lead to Nylander moving elsewhere. My hunch is that won't happen until after Matthews and Marner are signed (or just beforehand to free up cap space). Basically, Nylander will be the odd man out *IF* a cap crunch occurs in the future - but for this season, I'm fairly certain he's going to be playing for the Leafs... might as well use him and hopefully even increase his trade value. No point selling an asset when it's depreciated.

I don't remember Babs being too particularly fond of Nylander, wonder what this does to that relationship.
He has already said "“The guys that are here working every day are ahead of the guys who aren’t here working every day"

Craig Button (one of the worst GM's of all time btw) threw shade on the Leafs ... all the other top modern teams paid their "own" players first. Leafs bucked the trend by paying JT before any of the other boys. Of course due to the timing, I guess there was no way around it if we wanted JT.

On the Nylander, I'm a huge fan. Not sure what his ceiling is. I was perfectly happy with no JT but keeping the boys forever... Having said that. -JVR, - Bozak, - Nylander. Are we better off now with JT + whatever we get for Nylander? I think the potential's there, I mean VGK wouldn't go for it, but Shea Theodore + 2nd or 3rd for Nylander? We'd be a much more balanced team.
