Except it turns out he was in New York mostly to meet with Nylander’s agent, who lives in New York, and likely just went to the game while he was in town.
While many are trying to connect the potential trade dots on TOR GM Kyle Dubas being at last night’s NYR-CGY game at MSG, which I suppose is possible, it’s worth noting two things: 1. William Nylander’s agent Lewis Gross lives in Manhattan. 2. Dubas likes to go to hockey games.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) October 22, 2018
Yesterday, there was then news that Kyle Dubas was was in Philadelphia to watch the Flyers-Hurricanes game. With Nylander’s agent not also living in Philadelphia, more speculation about a scouting outing for a Willy trade were rampant! But once again Bob McKenzie put those rumours to bed.
At this point in time, Dubas is scrambling all over the globe... trying to unlock the secret, find the magic amulet, do SOMETHING that will get Nylander to sign.
