Yesterday was William Nylander's first preseason game as a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs. The eighteen year old forward, who I will now affectionately refer to as "Prettier Patrick Kane" had a ton of hype placed upon him, and delivered with a late-game goal. Over the course of the night, he captured the attention and the hearts of the collective fanbase. Let's look at some key moments.

Point-per-game player. Great actor. Assistant coach. Confirmed sex symbol. Philip “The Phil” “The Thrill” Kessel is one of the most exciting players in the league. And he’s a Maple Leaf. For 8 more years.
We are blessed. Praise Be to The Phil.

Tonight was a lot of fun for a preseason game. It was the first chance for us to see William Nylander play in a Leafs uniform, and the hype leading up to the game was something else. I'm not sure if Rielly or Kadri had this much behind them in their first camps, but from the broadcast crew to the hockey twitter crowd, folks were definitely excited.

Talking blanket scarves, Marlies, and Leafs preseason.

Now that he’s not the camp fatty, there hasn’t been a heck of a lot of negativity surrounding Kadri heading into the season. Sure, there were talks of moving him all summer, but that all proved to be for naught - which isn't surprising now that there’s a new regime that values things that Naz does well.
