Sources: “William Nylander Deal Is Imminent, Within 48 Hours At The Latest”

First, we gave you the John Tavares news and now we present you with a tasty Swedish Berry.

From our collective sources: “Sometime’s you just need to look someone in the eye, and tell them you love them”.

The conversation from the top of the Swiss Alps between Kyle Dubas and William Nylander was tremendously positive. From the sounds of it, he just needed to hear how much he’s wanted and hear exactly where he fits in over the next few years and of course, come to terms with the fact he hates sitting back and watching his team play while making zero dollars. Also helps when your Agent and your Dad aren’t in the room to demand answers and interrupt the conversation.

Kyle Dubas has unbelievable presenting skills and it sounds like he just nailed another one.

We are hearing it’s “very very likely a bridge deal around 5.8 to 6.3 million and pen to paper within the next 2-3 days at the latest”. 

Kyle Dubas has been running the roads lately. From the Alps to MSG to the Colorado/Philly game last night, he does love his hockey games. He also loves signing players everyone keeps telling him he can’t.

Oh hello, John, meet Willy.

From our sources, the deal is expected to be announced within the next 48 hours, and there’s a chance if he gets in some solid practices Thursday and Friday, he could make his debut on a Saturday night in Toronto against the pre-season Cup favourite, Winnipeg Jets.

Not the worst spot to make your debut.

Willy’s ready to get going, and today was the first day he didn’t skate with his Austrian club team.

Word is he’s packing his stuff and getting ready to move back to the 6ix.

Don’t expect to see Nylander on the top line from the jump, but once he gets settled, gets his legs, and earns Babcock’s trust, he will be reunited with Matthews and most likely his best friend Kapanen.

This would mean Marleau moves down to the 3rd line with Kadri and Brown, a line that was dominant at times last year. This is music to the ears of Nazem who has seen enough of Josh Leivo.

The Maple Leafs could still use another D-Man for the bottom pair, but it appears they are going to give Justin Holl a look over the next two weeks to see if he’s got what it takes.

An update in net, Carolina could have to make a move once Scott Darling comes back in the next week, Curtis Mac could be on his way back.

That’s all for now, more details to come.


As of 3:52 pm Tuesday, October 23rd, we are hearing “should be announced soon and a long-term deal doesn’t scare either side”

Bill Ny is sticking around.

Any money left over for Shakey Jakey Gardiner? That’s a Drew Doughty.

    I love the journalistic integrity here. I should start a website and post that his deal will be done in 48 hours. If I make up a new story every day saying his deal will be done within 48 hours, I guess I’ll be right eventually!
