Nylander is seeking a long-term contract worth $10 million/year and Leafs management are saying no thanks. They just can’t afford another big salary on the team.
One team that is looking for some scoring help is the New York Islanders. Could a deal be worked out between the Islanders and Leafs?
William Nylander headed to the New York Islanders?
Elliotte Friedman was on the NHL Network and reported that the New York Islanders have taken a pass on signing unrestricted free agent Vladimir Tarasenko and might go the trade route to look for some scoring help.
Friedman went on to say in his TV hit that with Nylander and the Toronto Maple Leafs no where close to getting a contract done. NHL trade rumors see a team that needs scoring like the Islanders make a inquiry.
What would it take for the Leafs to trade Nylander to the New York Islanders? If I am Leafs management, I am asking for Noah Dobson and nothing less.
The Islanders would have to figure out a way to shed more salary, as the new Nylander contract would likely be a sign and trade scenario.
