who else thinks Nylander is gonna have a huge chip on his shoulder next year when playing NY...
personally I think an Ovechkin-Nylander combo is the closest alternative to the the Jagr-Nylander combo...

Ovechkin-Nylander-Semin

Is going to be a difficult line to play against...

Fortunately, none of these players back check and then we get Poti to deal with on defense.

Their top line will be AO-Nylander-Kozlov.. Semin is LW and plays on 2nd line.

Anyhow, would have preferred to him go out west as well, but at least he didn't sign with NJ or Isles.

Nylander will earn $5.5 million in each of the first three years of the deal and $3 million in the fourth, meaning he will count $4.875 million against the salary cap per season over the course of the deal. The Capitals front-loaded the contract in case Nylander's production slips.
Quote:
On Sunday, Nylander received offers from several teams and weighed his options for more than a day. At 8 p.m. Sunday, in fact, talks between Nylander's camp and the Capitals broke off and McPhee thought Nylander may be headed elsewhere. But the negotiations resumed early yesterday morning.

"It sounds like he had a difficult time with the decision-making process," McPhee said. "There were lots of offers and lots of interest from different clubs. That's got to be a difficult thing for a player

Edmonton thought they had a done deal with Nylander

Quote:
An official explanation has not yet been offered up by any of the parties, but suffice it to say that the Oilers were blindsided when it was announced on Monday that the free agent was heading back to the Washington Capitals.
Quote:
So what happened?

Did Nylander, who is in Sweden, change his mind and decide to go back to the team he played with in 2002-03? Did he convey his decision to his Ontario-based agent, who would have been dealing with Oilers
?

Is Nylander going to fire Gillis now?

Oilers offered 22 million. He settled for 18. Man, it is a 4 MILLION difference!!! I think he wanted to be comfortable and not to pay Canadian taxes that would eat the 4 mill quickly.
Anyway, Sather could have gotten him for 18 million. Whether he made a mistake remains to be seen. I'd rather keep Nylander and unload Cullen for 5th rounder. Yea, make it 7th... Same money.

And have to stick Nylander on the 3rd line? Or Gomez/Drury? I don't any of them would have liked that idea..

Cullen is already an overpaid 3rd liner, any of those guys would have been even more..

Statement from Oilers, man is this sketchy:

http://oilers.nhl.com/team/app/?serv...ticleid=327124

Quote:
Oilers Statement regarding Michael Nylander


The Edmonton Oilers Hockey Club is compelled to clarify the unfortunate and unprecedented circumstances surrounding the Edmonton Oilers and Michael Nylander.

On Sunday, July 1, 2007, Kevin Lowe, Oilers General Manager, and Mr. Mike Gillis, Certified Agent for Michael Nylander, negotiated and agreed to a multi-year NHL Standard Players Contract, starting in 2007/08. Mr. Gillis confirmed same to the Oilers in writing.

The Oilers then proceeded with preparations to announce Mr. Nylander’s contract agreement on July 2, and concurrently continued with the process of negotiating with other free agents based upon Mr. Nylander being an important roster ingredient for the future.

However, while the Oilers were expecting the returned, signed agreements from Mr. Nylander and Mr. Gillis, the Oilers discovered through public announcements made mid-afternoon on July 2, that Mr. Nylander had subsequently entered into a long-term contract with the Capitals.

The Oilers can find no precedent for such conduct in our history. The Oilers are examining and pursuing every course of action available in the best interest of the team and our fans.

For legal reasons, the Edmonton Oilers Hockey Club will not be discussing the details any further at this time.

Edmonton Oilers said Nylander had signed with them

Looks like he pulled a fast one on them

can't this go in the Nylander thread? definitely sounds shady...but what is their recourse? it's not like they would want to force him to play for them.

Wow, looked like hes in a bit of trouble maybe.

This has been a bad offseason for Nylander.
I mean yeah he got a pretty good raise - good for him, but who knows if he took that first contract with the Rangers everyhting would be different.

Hopefully its his agents fault and if it is hes got some major agent problems.

Oh well. Hes a Capital now. Sorry to say it but at this point i don't give a rats ass.

Wonder if the Oilers can file a grievance and ask for arbitration.
Remember when Quebec traded Lindros to the Flyers and then a little later traded him to the Rangers? An arbitrator ruled that Lindros belonged to the Flyers because their trade came before our trade.
Though I doubt Nylander will be "awarded" to the Oilers in this case, maybe Kevin Lowe can ring something out of the situation.

Yeah what a bum, he got a deal he liked better (playing with AO) and changed his mind BEFORE he actually signed with the Oilers. I'm sure it's the first time in NHL history a player has made a last minute decision as an unrestricted free agent.

Nobody knows what happened behind closed doors, so there is no reason to call him names and judge him, he played above and beyond expectations (and his salary) as a NY Ranger so why the negativity towards him? The Rangers decided to go younger and in a different direction and some people are bad mouthing him, unbelievable. If you were Nylander playing the last 2 years for $2 million dollars, and Cullen the 3rd line center was making $3 million, wouldn't you want a nice raise too?

The Oilers could have made an offer, his agent told them to send over the paperwork and Washington came in at the last second before he signed anything. What is wrong with that?? Until he signs on the dotted line he is still an unrestricted free agent.

Just as a pure hockey fan -

Getting to see Nylander with a possible Ovechkin/Semin line could be a very special thing to see.

I actually think Washington might surprise people. Buffalo came flying out with the new logo's why not the Caps?

They've got three decent players in the offseason and they fought hard last year. I dont expect them to win the division but i think theyll compete.

I wouldnt be surprised if it happened.

Kevin Lowe is a pretty well respected hockey dude, i don't think the leauge would just turn a cold shoulder all together.
