Despite his recent statements, there have been some doubts circling when it comes to William Nylander's commitment to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Nylander's Reassurance to Fans

In a recent quote, Nylander shared updates about his summer and contract negotiations where he expressed his love for Toronto and his desire to continue his future with the Maple Leafs.


Nylander: "I still have one more year left, so I don't really understand what the big rush is, either, to get a deal done."


Nylander's Agent

Adding intrigue to this, Nylander's agent, Lewis Gross, is a prominent figure in the hockey agent market, representing notable players like Johnny Gaudreau, Tory Krug, Brandon Saad, and Nylander himself.

It's important to note that a concerning pattern has emerged among Gross' clients, casting uncertainty over the situation with Nylander in Toronto. Among his four major active contracts (Gaudreau, Nylander, Krug, and Saad), three players initially expressed intent to stay with their teams but ultimately departed in free agency for higher pay.

Nylander's apparent loyalty could be attributed to the lack of an opportunity for him to explore free agency thus far in his career. Considering Gross' track record of players outwardly expressing their commitment only to leave upon entering free agency, there's a growing suspicion that Nylander might follow suit.
