Western Conference Team Drops Out Of Nylander Sweepstakes.

The William Nylander drama continues in Toronto as the restricted free agent remains unsigned and the December 1st deadline looming. According to Chris Johnston of Sportsnet, the Leafs and general manager Kyle Dubas are fine with letting Nylander sit out the season, however a deal or trade before December 1st is ideal. There's been some teams heavily attached to the Leafs and Nylander since the drama unfolded and now it looks like one team is stepping away. According to Michael Russo of The Athletic, the Minnesota Wild are likely pulling out of the Nylander sweepstakes. The idea of adding a right handed offensive winger is a great idea for the Wild, especially since Nylander can move to center at any time.However Russo points out that the reported asking price of Matt Dumba is just simply too high for the Wild, the team also is hoping to extend both Eric Staal and Mikael Granlund and a Nylander contract at $8million could hurt those chances. Would you have liked to see Dumba in a Leafs uniform?
