<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Random2152</b></div><div>All I can tell you is that you are wrong about Nylander here. I know his rep is bad on this site, but anyone with eyes can tell you he is absolutely worth his deal and more. From an analytical point of view, he has been the 23rd best player NHL wide this year (dom luscyzyn's gsva).
Mango, Kappy and Kerfy are all good, but they aren't steals yet. They are right around what should be expected</div></div>
I'm not saying Nylander is a bad player. But IMO he is 1m overpaid, I think he deserved a contract around 6 - 6.25m/year. He don't deserve more many than Mackinnon, Barkov, Huberdeau, Scheifele, Gaudreau, Forsberg, Pastrnak. Those players are on very great deals and deserve their spot on ''best contracts standings''. Nylander is overpaided and don't have his place on this list. If he were paid 5.75 or less I might would've include him, but not a 7m.
I'm not saying Johnsson, Kap and Kerfoot are on decent deals, but their contract are more accurate than Nylander's. William received more than he should only because he decided to miss half a season and it 've put pressure on Dubas's back.
Barrie at 2.7m/y is the best contract on the leafs.
missing a lot of good ELC's :
Barzal, Dubois, Keller, DeBrusk, Hintz, Lindblom, Blais, Cirelli and Kakko are all better than Zadina, Andersson and Yamamoto
Heiskanen, Chabot, Girard, Jokiharju, Cernak, Sergachev, Dunn, Brannstrom, Fabbro, Dobson, Fox and DeAngelo are all better than Harpur, Bean, Wilde and Liljegren (you really must be a leafs fan to throw Harpur there....)
My ELC's team would look like that:
Pettersson - Barzal - Svechnikov
Hintz - Dubois - Debrincat
Tkachuk - Hischier - Keller
Lindblom - Cirelli - DeBrusk extra forwards : Hughes, Kakko
Dahlin - Makar
Chabot - Cernak
Heiskanen - Girard extra dman : Quinn Hughes
Hart - Samsonov
