This isn’t the news we were waiting for. Today, Pierre LeBrun of TSN/The Athletic/RDS tweeted out that Nylander and the Leafs… well, they’re still talking.
Leafs management and William Nylander’s camp are continuing to have dialogue/discussions including this past weekend. So that door hasn’t been shut. Whether or not it leads to a breakthrough before Dec 1 is hard to say though.

Heck, we don’t even know if it’s news or not. Was it ever reported they’d stopped talking?
It’s mostly a “same old” same old tweet, but we’re starving for just about anything at this point. Someone could even post an emoji of the Swedish flag and we’d find that noteworthy at some point.
Our friend Tyler might have summed it up best:
William Nylander and the Maple Leafs:
– are continuing dialogue
– their dialogue? In continuation
– the dialogue is cointuously continuing
– of all states of continuation that exist, their dialogue is there

A worthy take from Jonas Siegel today, of the Leafs exploring uncharted waters:
Today’s story: If they can’t sign William Nylander, the Leafs shouldn’t trade him — they should let him sit out the season. https://t.co/UeJpM5NYkF

A bit from a flustered fan in Boston this weekend…

Here are some more Nylander takes from us:
So what do you think? Is Pierre LeBrun just filling a quota? Are the Leafs going to sign him? Will the world die an inevitable heat death before December?
