Report: 'Highly unlikely' Maple Leafs trade Nylander before 5 p.m. deadline

Report: 'Highly unlikely' Maple Leafs trade Nylander before 5 p.m. deadline It appears the William Nylander standoff has come down to one of two possible conclusions: sign or sit. It's "highly unlikely" the Toronto Maple Leafs will trade Nylander before Saturday's 5 p.m. ET deadline, reports TSN's Bob McKenzie. If Nylander doesn't sign a contract before then, he'll be ineligible to play at all this season. If the deadline passes without a new contract, the Maple Leafs could still theoretically deal Nylander's rights this season before February 25, but it would essentially rule out any trade partner with playoff aspirations.

The Carolina Hurricanes reportedly aren't done trying to bolster their group up front after failing to acquire William Nylander.

"I can tell (you) Carolina - which really, really, really wanted to get in on Nylander and never really got that shot - they want a top-six forward ASAP, and they've got the surplus on defense to make it happen," TSN's Pierre LeBrun said on Thursday's edition of "Insider Trading."

Carolina is deep on the back end, boasting the likes of Jaccob Slavin, Dougie Hamilton, Justin Faulk, and Calvin de Haan, in addition to Brett Pesce and Trevor van Riemsdyk.

The Hurricanes' forward depth has taken a hit due to injuries, with Jordan Staal being ruled out of Friday's game against the Anaheim Ducks due to a concussion and Micheal Ferland still dealing with a head injury of his own.

LeBrun reported back in September that the Hurricanes were among the teams that called the Toronto Maple Leafs about Nylander, but they were told the Leafs didn't want to trade him.

Nylander re-signed with Toronto last Saturday, inking a new six-year deal minutes before the 5 p.m. ET deadline to avoid being ineligible for the rest of the season.

Nylander contract a win for Canes as they negotiate Aho extension

Nylander contract a win for Canes as they negotiate Aho extension Nylander’s contract sets the market for Aho’s impending long-term extension. 4:57 pm EST on Saturday marked the end of an unbearable soap opera. With just a few minutes to spare before the RFA signing deadline, William Nylander put pen to paper on a six year, $6.9 million AAV contract extension with the Toronto Maple Leafs. While the contract was nice for both the Leafs and their young star, it also served as an important precedent for many of the other 30 NHL teams and their young players.

Now, naturally, the Canadiens and Hurricanes might just want to keep those players for themselves, or Nylander and the Toronto Maple Leafs have agreed on a six -year pact worth .4M. Reports had the negotiations falling somewhere between a bridge deal for about three years and a longer-term
