Leafs sign Nylander to a six-year contract

Leafs sign Nylander to a six-year contract

He joins a 19-8-0 team that ranks third in goals per game and second overall in points. "Everybody has a role and I'm happy to do my part and I know what my role is, and go out there and do it every night and try to do it every night to the best of my ability to help the team win".

Nylander's offensive production in his first three seasons was almost identical to Draisaitl's but the two players have different roles on their respective teams and one could argue Draisaitl is a more versatile player so Leafs weren't willing to pay that amount for Nylander. The Nylander camp preferred to use as a comparison Edmonton Oilers forward Leon Draisaitl, who signed an eight-year deal with an annual average value of $8.5 million as a 22-year-old.

"A couple guys came early and we were kind of all sitting here, [Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock] popped out of the office and said, 'We signed him, '" Marner said. He would not be eligible to play in 2018-19 if he did not sign a deal by the end of Saturday. "It's exciting. I can't wait to have him back".

The relationship is a natural one, as lower budget teams are concerned with the payments they make to players, whereas higher budget teams like the Leafs are principally concerned with a player's cap hit.

And I am told the Leafs agree with my assessment.If the Leafs can get Parayko for Nylander just deliver the cup to Yonge St.eventually. "We want him back and that's it".

Nylander has scored at least 20 goals in each of his two full National Hockey League seasons and had a second straight 61-point season last season (20 goals, 41 assists).

"We're not just three, four guys unsafe", Tavares said of the Leafs' depth.

With the Leafs, the majority of headlines are reserved by players such as Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner, and Morgan Rielly. "I think that's a big key to our team and something we have going for us that not a lot of teams do is having a lot of depth". Nylander has added two goals and six assists in 13 playoff outings. Even though the talented Czech was selected 17 spots behind Nylander in 2014 he has taken his game to a level Nylander hasn't.
