William Nylander should be a Toronto Maple Leafs player for a long time if he signs a contract, coach Mike Babcock said Thursday. "I'll tell you again, this is what I think, and it's just what I think," Babcock said. " [General manager] Kyle [Dubas] and I talk about this every day so I'm up to date on what's going on. There's lots of opinion out there. Let's not confuse opinion and facts; we think Willy is going to be here. We think Willy is going to be here for a long time. We think he's going to be a career Leaf. That's what we think, that's what we believe."
