Nylander On The Move? → Selling House

According to this, http://japersrink.blogspot.com/2008/...ng-market.html, Nylander's house is on the market.

I thought the Caps were a bit center-heavy with the emergence of Backstrom, esp. with Fedorov fitting in so well with the other Russians.


Nylander needs a pretty big, scoring winger to be most effective. So which teams do we think are interested?

Edmonton?

Maybe they just don't like the house.

He's probably not going anywhere. The Caps want 3 scoring lines, you need 3 good centers to do that. Backstrom, Nylander, Fedorov.

The Caps are under the cap (no pun intended) for now, trading for Gaborik would put them over. They'll have to dump salary at some point though to make room for Pothier's return, but it would be a salary dump and not a move for more salary.

Maybe Nylander dabbles in real estate? Interest rates dropping...strike while the irons hot.

There could be something to the story, but this is only circumstantial evidence, and by itself it doesn't mean anything.

This implies that Nylander had been told in advance that's he being traded and that a deal is already in place. Seems awfully kind of a GM to tell a player this far in advance.

Nylander has career earnings of 20.7M, plus he's scheduled to make almost another 15M over the next 3 years. With that kind of cash, he can afford to live in a house that is worth a heck of a lot more than 3.25M.

But I would agree that if the Caps were looking to shed payroll, Nylander would be a top candidate to be moved. They seemed to do just fine without him in the lineup down the stretch.

Ignoring future earnings, if he's only made 20 million in his entire career of 16 seasons... Short of outside income like endorsements I don't see how he could easily afford something a heck of a lot more expensive. Throw in taxes and pension (he has to make that income last the rest of his life!), not to mention other expenditures...

If he wants to be as successful as possible, he should pray there's a way he can wind up in Omsk.

if i made 20 mill in 16 years, I'd probably be able to find a way to make ends meet and live in a nice house!! Not to mention if you have a 20 million $$$$ contract in your pocket, chances are there's a bank or two out there willing to spot you a little.... Most of his income has probably come in the last 1/2 dozen years after he scraped by on under a mill per for the first 10 or so under that old unfair labour system the NHL had in place!!!!

Well Eklund did have Nylander listed this off season as someone Edmonton is looking at. Think there's any truth to that rumour?

I wonder, when does Gabby graduate from 'potential' franchise winger to franchise winger?

I can see Nylander going to Minny. But not for Gaborik. It'll have to be for a prospect. But they've gone down that road before. (O'Sully for Demo.)

In what world do you live in where interest (mortgage) rates are dropping. Check it out, even with treasuries rallying, mortgages are unched.

I hope Nylander stays. He's a good player. Would have been nice to have him in the line-up against the Flyboys in the playoffs.

If he is traded my guess is that it would be for a defenseman.

I think he would fit in well with Columbus and Rick Nash.

The possibility of Nylander moving has been discussed ad nauseum on the Caps board and a couple of facts stand out:

1. Feds is sort of old and his ability to play at a high level into the playoffs is a bit of a question mark if he is relied upon to play heavy minutes in the regular season as a 2nd liner center.

2. Feds has a one year contract. If the Caps ditch Nylander, they're going into the 09 offseason with NO 2nd line center (there are plenty of other centers on the team, just none that have the talent to play 2nd line with Semin).

3. Nylander has a No Movement clause in his contract.

Having Fedorov and Nylander on this team together is not a bad thing. Feds can play 3rd line and a lot of specialty teams minutes and keep himself fresh through the season. Nylander can soak up the load of being 2nd line center.

IMHO, Viktor Kozlov should be the salary cap casualty if you were to pick a dump on the Caps.

Yep. Nylander's not going anywhere. Having Feds and Nylander on a team together is a good thing.

Did anybody think that he just wants to move closer to the Caps practice facility?

This may end up being nothing. I remember a few years back Nabokov had his house on the market and people were speculating. In the end I think him and Dana Stubblefield traded houses or something. I remember seeing in the newspaper " E. Nabokov sells house to D. Stubblefield" and then later reading "D. Stubblefield sells house to E. Nabokov" or something to that effect.
