Enjoy your day folks. Remember, big news gets dropped at the end of the day on Friday.

So keep refreshing the news all day.

Bob McKenzie with the no-news newsbreak at 5:30 p.m. Friday.

  • No news
  • Could all be solved in seconds.
  • He thinks Nylander will wait for Saturday for the best Leafs offer
  • Leafs will think he’ll be more likely to settle for their deal on Saturday.
  • McKenzie does not think a trade is probable because the Leafs don’t want to trade him, and there a few teams who can afford his cap hit this year, plus the Leafs aren’t being offered fair value.
  • Rank the likely outcomes: 1, signs 2. holdsout 3. trade, with 3 a distant third well after the other two. /
