Meh, aren't hockeyplayers allowed to move anymore? I feel like this is just being oversized because of the low-rate of news lately.

To anyone who's afraid to lose the Sundin sweepstakes? There could be a couple of buyers looking to setup Nylander as their backup plan and he's been put on notice. Maybe he gets moved right after Sundin decides.

Doak on the Buffalo board had an idea involving Afinogenov. It makes sense...too much sense...

For who? Afinogenov is a sizeable downgrade from Nylander so unless the Caps are unhappy with Nylander and want to dump the extra years of his contract, it makes no sense for them.

What would Capitals fans want for Nylander from the Habs? Back-up plan if Sundin isn't signed by the Habs.

At least a 50 goals season or two consecutive 90+ points season IMO.

Young center/forward, and draft pick or prospect.

Blame all this on the old guys who are all collectively sitting on their butts...
Sakic, Sundin and Selanne who are humming and hawing on what the hell
they want to do... Retire or play again

They are clogging up the bowels of the NHL trade market... and once these guys
decide, then the flood gates will be open and the teams over the cap wanting
to move players like... Nylander, Havlat, Habby, Schneider, Knuble... will be finally
able to do so.

But until these guys decide... probably in a couple weeks, nothing will happen

Not enough salary. The Caps would need the transaction be in their favor, salary wise, by ~900K or more (for breathing room).


If Nylander does have to be moved, the Caps need a center coming back, someone that can reasonably be expected to play on the second line. Fedorov can't be relied on the play 2nd line minutes, and play the PP, and the PK, for the whole season+playoffs. And, obviously, they'd need someone to replace him once he moves on. Laich could be that someone, maybe, but they can't bank on it.

As mentioned before, Nylander being moved doesn't really make that much sense, salary issues notwithstanding. He's the only strong Swedish mentor we have for Backstrom (who's still only 20), and that in and of itself is an important role we'll need for another season or two. Fedorov isn't a sure bet as our 2nd line center, either, and Nylander's one of the best we could have to fill that role. Not to mention the NMC and little reason for him to accept a move (with such a big family) after only 1 year in the area. Salary will be moved elsewhere, probably Fehr/Fleischmann + Gordon, or Kozlov, or maybe Brashear, etc.

Not a great contract for an a late 30s play. And there's 3 years left on it.

If he dabbles in real estate why would he be selling ? It's a great time to buy.

Edmonton should trade for him and sit him in the press box all year and not let him come on road trips. Just let him sit in freezing Edmonton all year.

For the eleventyhundredth time... Nylander has a NMC. He was adamant about having one when he signed last summer. His wife really likes the DC area. He wants to stop moving cities so he can raise his family. Why would this change in a year?

And as already stated, the Caps would be stupid to trade him unless they got another 2nd line center in return. If they trade Nyls, they have no 2nd line center for 09-10. It also hampers Boudreau's system of 3 scoring lines.

If Nylander goes anywhere I will be both very surprised and disappointed.

I would imagine that he is going to Montreal. I think he's like part French or something.

1)I could see Vancouver going after him. Lets say Gillis figures Sundin won't sign in Vancouver so he wants someone to replace him. Gillis was his agent so maybe he likes him. I would laugh if he went to the Nucks but I agree, not a great move for the Nucks.

2)If he went to the Blue Jackets, I don't know if I woulf laugh or cry. He screws my fav team over(Oilers) then gets traded to my other fav team.

Maybe he waives his NMC if they promise him that he is getting traded to a city that is closer to Sweden then Washington

*if nonone gets it, that was his reason/excuse why he chose Washington over Edmonton.

Nylander isn't going anywhere.

What are they going to do when Fedorov's contract is up? Rely on the first line only? They'll need him in 2010.
