Kapanen Makes Bold Prediction About William Nylander.

The chatter all summer was about Mitch Marner and if we would have another William Nylander situation on our hands. Thankfully that didn't happen and the Leafs got Marner locked up during the start of camp. Marner has returned to the John Tavares' wing and Nylander is currently skating alongside Auston Matthews. Many people are hoping for a huge season from Nylander after he had trouble getting things rolling last year. After back to back 61 point seasons, Nylander finished with 27 points in 54 games. Kasperi Kapanen doesn't just expect a bounce back season, Kapanen is now predicting that Nylander will join the ranks of Mats Sundin, Peter Forsberg, the Sedins and more. "I think he's going to go down as one of the best Swedish players to ever play."
