Confirmation from the team
As you know, I've been pimping the idea of Nylander's return for a couple of months now, so I'm elated by this news. Sure, the money is more than I had thought and the term is longer, but the fact remains that the Caps now have a legitimate first-line center, a veteran presence and a mentor all in one. Not bad.
And here's a thought - Alex Ovechkin scored 98 goals in his first two seasons with a converted winger as his pivot. Imagine what he'll do now.
Update: TSN.ca has the deal as 4-years/$19.5-million.
