Reporter: “How open are you to the idea of re-signing if things get off to a strong start for you and if you feel comfortable?”

Bertuzzi: “Yeah, I haven’t even played my first game yet. But it’s been awesome so far. So time will tell with that too.

The latest on William Nylander

TSN: Chris Johnston on Insider Trading when asked if there was any news on William Nylander who is entering the final year of his contract.

“Well not yet, where we are right now on the eve of training camp is that this is going to be something that’s going to generate a lot of discussion, a lot of noise as the Leafs return to the ice but behind the scenes, there hasn’t been a whole lot of talk. I don’t get the sense, at least where I’m sitting, that they’ve made progress towards an extension for Nylander. Now I don’t know that there’s anything bad to be read into there – it seems like both sides are approaching this with a bit of caution.”

Johnston adds that at this time there doesn’t appear to be any talks set up but Nylander is now back in North America so it’s possible some talks could arise.
