Nylander signed last offseason with the Caps and is still under contract with them. I'm not crazy am I?

No you're not .. He 35 yrs old and signed at a cap hit of 4.875 for the net 3 years(!) .. Sorry, not interested at that price.

No you're totally right. He's signed for 3 more seasons at a 4.875 cap hit.

And unless he'd cost the Panthers damn near nothing I'd stear clear of Nylander. 35 years old and just missed over half the season with a shoulder injury? Eh...

Just Eklund throwing stuff out there. A) He's under contract and B) we could have paid Morrison less and he's younger. It just doesn't make sense.

I'd like to know where Eklund got that rumor - seems like a load of bs to me.

And since he's the source, I'm merging this thread into the UFA thread.

nylander's a different type of player and when you're bringing in a vet in his 30s, what's 2 or 3 years? they aren't going to be in your long term plans.
