Maple Leafs sign William Nylander to three-year entry level contract

1114

The Maple Leafs have signed 2014 eighth overall draft pick William Nylander to a three-year entry level deal.

This of course is standard business and changes nothing as far as the options available to the Leafs and Nylander this Fall, of which there are three: back to MoDo in the SHL, down to the Marlies, or even Mississauga of the OHL, although the latter-most seems unlikely.

According to Article 9.1(d)(i) of the CBA, if Nylander plays less than 10 games for the Leafs this year — regardless of where (including the Marlies or the SHL) — his contract will slide because he’s in year 1 of his Standard Player Contract.

Does the ACC have a big basement? Need room for these new hires.

Well, I guess all the anti-stats people can't claim the stats guys are just sitting in their mother's basement any longer. They're working for the Leafs and being compensated very well for it, I would imagine.

Nylander ranked 4th best prospect in world by ESPN's Corey Pronman. 

Only behind Drouin, Ekblad and Bennett.

What's with Lieweekly? I thought he said he wouldn't leave here until the Leafs were cup winners.

@Burtonboy I hate Simmons but I like seeing that. I've felt like Charron is a doucher. but now that he's working for the leafs I hope I'm proven wrong.

That would be libel, and the accusation would have to be untrue.

@Mcost61 @Burtonboy lol you just know he's sitting in his basement corner, box of chocolate and tissues just staring at his phone, wishing, hoping...the Leafs will finally notice him!

This is from 4 days ago:


@Burtonboy I have a strange feeling that Shanny/Dubas are behind this. I'm sure we'll find out soon enough. 


Alright, I'm done gloating.

@Bobsyouruncle @dlb Mad I've read a lot of Cam's articles on leafsnation.  I think he does a good job, his articles may not appeal to you but they are researched and make a good point.  To each his own.
