    Curious if you have watched him play at all? I have often over the last few years, and I come away impressed every time.

    54% on faceoffs, starting 33% in the OZ every year. Still has a positive Corsi, GF/60 is 2.5, GA/60 is 1.7. His breakout fourth full season is coming next year with second line centre minutes (16/game to 19/game), and a new 6+ year deal of $3-4M.

    The underrated players always get listed as star players like Barkov and Backstrom, but Sissons is one of those truly under-appreciated guys like Slavin last year.

    Yeah Ive seen him play a few times this year. Im no scout but he looks like a really solid 3C. The 2C has been a revolving door position for a long time now, Turris, Jarnkrok, Bonino etc. and the lack of a quality 2nd scoring line is a real weakness. I would be looking at trades, or even free agency, maybe a guy like Hayes who can generate offense.

    Stick with your first thought, Nylander. Hayes doesn't really move the dynamic needle. Nashville has a lot of good offensive players, but Willie would bring some extra dazzle.

    It seems like a match made in heaven. An abundance of dmen and an abundance of high skill forwards.

    Josi's 1 year away from GETTING PAID. With Ellis bumping to 6.2m... Perhaps an Ellis, ____, ____ - Nylander, ____, ____ deal is a possibility
    Yesterday's weirdness is tomorrow's reason why. - H.S.T.

    He hasn't been knocking the doors down to guarantee he has a spot if that's what you're looking for. I think it's unlikely he start up with the big club just because of how deep the current forward group is.
