Can The Devils Meet Toronto’s Demands For William Nylander?

The William Nylander contract saga is one of the oddest storylines of the 2018-2019 NHL season. Holdouts aren’t too common in hockey, and more commonly occur in pro-sports leagues like the NFL.

Surely, injuries are partly to blame for the team’s sudden drop-off in play. But there is one single man who has not gotten much of the criticism that is deserved.
