One upside is he can play left wing.
Looking at what he was paid last year, the NH:L salaries before this year and even the signing so far this summer in the shadow of the CBA cluster****, I don't think it's bad at all. Agree to disagree. And I couldn't give a crap if Dolan blinked or Jagr wanted it because Nylander brings the exact ability we need for OUR 1st line C..

And you're getting this "he could have been signed for one year" from where exactly...I haven't seen to many one year contracts for players of his ilk this summer and any summer...

And I too am a little worried about his injury history but let's be real, before last year he played three full years in a row and not playing less than 80 games.....That's shows some durability
