The Latest On The Contract Negotiations With William Nylander And The Toronto Maple Leafs

from Kevin McGran of the Toronto Star,

The Nylander camp and Leafs brass are at an impasse, though they have agreed to work toward a long-term deal. GM Kyle Dubas said Friday that he has no intention of trading the restricted free agent, calling Nylander too important a player to the program.

“I’ve been asked: ‘Do you want to trade him right now?’ And the answer is, ‘No,’ ” Dubas told the Star on Friday. “Circumstances can change. But it’s not in any plan or any discussion we’ve had that we’re going to trade any of these players.

“Our goal is to have them each develop and maximize their potential here.”

The Swedish right winger is believed to be asking for $8 million, with the Leafs countering at around $6 million. Dubas did not speak about specific numbers, but added that long-term deals can be difficult.

I hope they get this contract sorted soon, I can’t start the season without at least one “Leafs are a finals favorite” article from the T-Dot media.
