NHL Trade Rumors: Maple Leafs listening to offers for William Nylander

nhl trade rumors maple leafs william nylander

As the March 1, 2017 NHL Trade Deadline approaches, some big names will surely move. A name that has sprung up in trade rumors is William Nylander of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Many teams would like to acquire a 20 year old talented foward like Nylander. Elliotte Friedman on Sportsnet 590 had this to say.

Also, (Leafs coach Mike) Babcock at times has been blunt about how he hasn’t always been thrilled with some of the things that Nylander does out there. He’s got a little bit of (Alexei) Kovalev in him. Kovalev was an artist, a tremendous player and sometimes as great as he was, he did things that the team was like, ‘You know Alex, we wish you’d do it this way.

We’re very early in that phase between Nylander and Babcock. We’ll see where it goes. I don’t think they’re in a hurry to deal him. I just think sometimes his name gets mentioned once and everybody starts going crazy about it because they miss a good old-fashioned trade rumour.

What would your team trade for William Nylander?
