Last week, we got pretty excited when Swedish news outlet Aftonbladet reported that William Nylander would be made available to Team Sweden at the upcoming IIHF World Junior Championships. We got even more excited when the 'Tre Kronor' named him (along with fellow Maple Leafs prospect Dmytro Timashov) to Sweden's preliminary roster

After Toronto Marlies General Manager Kyle Dubas joined Sportsnet 590's Brady & Walker this afternoon, though, it sounds like more than a few people jumped the gun on Nylander's involvement.

We're going to make this one real damn simple. 

We've been talking about Tampa Bay's Steven Stamkos a lot lately, especially since Sportsnet's Nick Kypreos poured an entire can of gasoline on the topic yesterday.

What a time to be alive!

As we get close to turning over a new year, it's again time to check in on how the whole Stamkos situation is shaking out in Tampa.  In short, it now looks like we're starting to get near "I can't believe this still isn't done" territory, and with 83 days until the trade deadline, you can only assume this thing is going to get magnified at a new level in the coming weeks. 

But while the chances of Stamkos' departure seem to be increasing, it's bringing with it the debate among Leafs fans about whether cracking the vault for him is actually the best idea.
