William Nylander's contract impasse is haunting Kasperi Kapanen's dreams

William Nylander's contract impasse is haunting Kasperi Kapanen's dreams

Though Matthews has three goals and an assist in the past two games, there's some room for improvement. He's a big part of this team.

Toronto head coach Mike Babcock remains confident William Nylander and the Maple Leafs have a future together. "Hopefully he gets us on a run here, gets in a couple practices". The contract also comes with a $24.5 million signing bonus, per Sportsnet's Nick Kypreos.

Nylander's prorated $10.27-million cap hit for the remainder of 2018-19 sees him join Connor McDavid, new teammate John Tavares, Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, Carey Price, Jack Eichel and Anze Kopitar as the only players in the league now with an eight-figure cap hit. "Sometimes it's frustrating, but I am happy to be here".

The Maple Leafs are whole again.

With one talented forward now back in the fold, adding yet another high-end offensive piece has the Leafs excited for a few reasons. "I didn't think we had our A-game at all in the second half of the game and, yet, we found a way to win".

Mets Close To Deal With Mariners For Robinson Cano, Edwin Diaz
He signed a 10-year, $240 million contract with the Mariners in December 2013, a deal that runs through his age-40 season. An industry source said McNeil's name wasn't in the trade proposal as recently as Wednesday, but that might have changed.

And what will Nylander add to an already-deep team that now has an improved shot at winning the Stanley Cup next June? "Babs popped out of the office and said we signed him". "We can't wait to get him back in Toronto". He finished last season with 20 goals and 41 assists. I think we always tried to stay optimistic and have faith that our offers were fair and that they were coming from a good place as well and that, in the end, him missing a full season and having it go across 5 o'clock today wouldn't have been good for anybody.

The Calgary-born Nylander, who has lived in Sweden since he was 14, played junior hockey in Sweden before being drafted by Toronto in the first round of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, eighth overall.

But Kasperi Kapanen, one of Nylander's good friends, occupied the right side on that unit for most of the early part of the schedule until Matthews suffered a left shoulder injury on October 27 that ruled him out of action for 14 games.

Kapanen has grabbed hold of his opportunity playing further up the lineup with 10 goals and eight assists, while fellow winger Andreas Johnsson has also benefited from Nylander's absence.
