Auston Matthews recently took center stage at a press conference after signing an extraordinary contract with the Maple Leafs. While his words provided valuable insights, they also held a subtle message for his fellow teammate, William Nylander.

Matthews' View on Nylander

In the past week, Auston Matthews has been in the spotlight for sealing a record-breaking deal with the Maple Leafs. This event sparked discussions about William Nylander's potential contract in the future.
When asked about Nylander's calm and composed attitude, and whether he'd like all his teammates to be the same way, Matthews replied:
"To an extent, for sure." He is not a fan of Willy's chilly nature at "all times"

Nylander's Contract Situation

Matthews' words could be seen as a subtle reference to Nylander's ongoing contract talks. While many players are committing to the Leafs early, similar to Matthews, Nylander's contract negotiations have remained notably low-key.
Nylander seems unfazed by the negotiations, considering them not worth excessive concern. However, time is of the essence. If Nylander remains firm on his demands, there's a chance it could have long-term consequences for the Leafs, potentially leading to his trade.
Only time will tell whether Nylander chooses to stick with the Leafs or explores other options. The Leafs' main goal is to secure valuable assets in return for Nylander, should he believe he's worth more than what the Leafs are offering.
