This NHL insider has just revealed why the contract talks in Toronto regarding William Nylander and why they are quiet.

Pierre LeBrun Reveals Why Nylander Contract Talks Are So Quiet

Coming into the season, one of the biggest questions for the Toronto Maple Leafs was whether or not Brad Treliving could get a deal done under the salary cap constraints. As the season began, though, contract talks have seemed to stall.

Now, NHL insider Pierre LeBrun has revealed exactly why the contract talks seem to have stalled.

"The thing about it is that it's been quiet by design. Both sides made a pact before the season started. They did not want any leaks whatsoever. Both sides want to be tight-lipped and that's exactly the way it's played out so far.

The reality is, the dialogue is ongoing. My understanding is both sides keep going back and forth. They hope to get something done between now and July 1st, but it's a difficult contract to get done."

It would appear that GM Brad Treliving has earned the trust of Nylander as there have been no leaks regarding Nylander's discussions.

Nylander Proving His Worth For Next Contract With the Start to the Season

The delay in getting a deal done is proving to be a bad move for Brad Treliving, as Nylander continues to show just how much he is worth. Nylander has 22 points through 15 games, tallying 10 goals and 12 assists.

While the contract discussions were focused around the 9 million mark prior to the season, Nylander is making the case to easily earn over 10 with his performance thus far. We will see if Brad Treliving can work some cap magic to get a deal done before July 1st.
