*Heavy French accent* "Hi Kyle, this is Marc from the Montreal Canadiens calling. We're sorry to hear about your contract dispute with William Nylander. We heard you were taking calls on him? What would it take to get Bill... I mean Willy off your hands?" Maple Leafs Should Trade William Nylander To The Montreal Canadiens To the hockey community's knowledge, a conversation like this has not taken place between the two general managers.

LOS ANGELES — Early in William Nylander’s absence, when Mike Babcock talked about an unsettled forward line or an incomplete power-play look, he’d say it would all work out “when everyone is here.” But he hasn’t sprinkled that phrase into any remarks the past few weeks, an indication that the big picture could be close […]
