Alright, let the final watch begin.

 

Is this Alex's year, or is he riding the train to bust town?

I actually think he will be much better in the AHL this year and will get a bunch of call-ups. Dev camp will be interesting for him.

Not voting till I can see him.

He’ll have a better season. It’s virtually impossible to be worse than he was last year.

 

Oh yeah?

That Nylander's harshest critics have always been the people who watch him the most has worried me greatly.

Traded for a garbage return. 3rd rounder plus some toss in prospect

It should. The light switch needs to go on now. He's stil young but at some point, that will be a crutch he'll no longer have.

Each of these watch threads always want me to stop and check the time.  But anyway, now that everyone thinks we love swedes, doesn't that give a slightly more optimistic look to Nylander?

I expect he’s officially labeled a bust at the end of this season

Very distinct possibility.

I voted more optimistically, but this is probably the most likely.

 

Though if Casey turns into a bonafide all star , then I'd rather take one star and one bust at consecutive pick 8s than 2 middling players.

Skill wins out. He starts producing in the AHL and earns a call-up.

 

I’ve always disliked him as a player, but I strongly want him to prove me and all those armchair experts wrong.

The number of good NHLers who failed to make the NHL before they turned 20 is really, really long.

Tell that to Yakupov and Linus Omark

I forget which AGM talked about it but he said that this offseason was the most important of Nylander's life. I think the message to him has been clear.

I think I’ve seen his “skill” only a handful of times in actual game action. He’s a practice all star. He doesn’t appear all that skilled against other professionals. Hard to when you never have the puck and lay in the weed along the perimeter.

Right. He looks awesome stickhandling in warmups. Game-Nylander is like Ville Leino or something.

A good summer of working out will do wonders for him, I don't expect him up with the sabres in October though.

Wasn't Linus Omark, like, a 6th round pick? Your point is well taken, but c'mon man!

Yakupov’s career is actually close to what I expect to see from Nylander.

I think Yakupov has half the hockey sense of Alex, and twice the effort.

Ouch

Lots of speculation he's being held out of Developent camp pending a trade.
