William Nylander's contract discussions are the talk of the town in hockey circles, with several experts sharing their insights.

Expert Opinion

As William Nylander approaches the last year of his current contract, rumors abound about a significant salary increase.
Expert Chris Johnson voiced his thoughts:
"Eerily quiet [on the Nylander contract front]. And I do believe that September is a big month. Like, I have to believe there's going to be another attempt here to sign William Nylander, to remove that question, that storyline, just the uncertainty that comes with a situation like that, even before the season gets going.

You know, that was a big factor in Auston Matthews signing the deal he did when he did, right at the end of August. You know, I think that he understood, you know, first of all, he understands how big this year is. Every year now in Toronto, we'll be calling a big season as long as this team still has the hopes it does and that sort of core it does.

He didn't want that to flood into training camp and potentially impact the vibes, I guess you'll say, as the team gets back together. So, you know, I'm not saying that as any way to put pressure on William Nylander, but I think that there will be an opportunity here, maybe, to see if they can get something done. It doesn't guarantee it's going to happen."

The Speculation Around Nylander's Contract

One thing's for sure, Nylander's aiming for a hefty pay rise. The Leafs have time and again expressed their desire to keep Nylander for a long time. But with a longer contract comes a bigger paycheck sometimes.
Whispers are that Nylander seeks a $10M deal, a figure the Leafs currently seem hesitant about. However, if his performance in the upcoming season justifies such a price tag, they might rethink.
