Sharks forward Timo Meier is among young stars who could reap the fruits of the trickle-down effect. After months of negotiations, speculation and media hype, William Nylander reached a deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs at the midnight hour Saturday, signing a six-year contract worth $41.77 million to avoid the alternative option of sitting out for an entire season.
