Insider Frank Seravalli reveals a huge update on Toronto Maple Leafs' forward William Nylander
On a recent podcast appearance Frank Seravalli of Daily Faceoff shared some news regarding the Maple Leafs' forward.
Similar to what happened last time the Maple Leafs and Nylander negotiated a contract back in late 2018, the player isn't too worried about his next contract. Whether the two come together and sign a deal during this season or wait to see how it plays out next offseason, Nylander is fine with either option.
Could Nylander be traded?
According to Seravalli, the Maple Leafs never considered trading Nylander at any point during this current contract negotiation saga.
The Maple Leafs want to finally make a deep playoff run and they won't hurt their chances by trading one of the most valuable players on their team for what would likely be less than his worth. Both sides are content with playing out the season and re-evaluating next year. Either way, the team has one of the best wingers in the league on a bargain of a contract for one year.
