Following the tough loss in Game 7, William Nylander opened up about the injury that kept him out of the first three games of the series. Nylander shared that he was dealing with a serious head problem and eye migraines.

"Not a question of seeing clearly. More like couldn't see *at all*. With ocular migraines vision disintegrates. You'll look at someone's face & only see a quarter of it. The rest of your vision is filled w/shiny, flashing lights and squiggles. I get this type. They're F'ing awful."

As for the defeat, Nylander didn't sugarcoat it.
"Look, I don't think there's a problem with the core. I think we were right there all series. We fought hard and took it to Game 7 and OT. It's just a crappy feeling."

Nylander came up big in Game 6 with two crucial goals to keep the Leafs in the series and scored the first goal in Game 7, putting Toronto ahead 1-0 in the third period.
But it wasn't enough as they fell short by a goal. Now, the question looms about the future of the Leafs' core players—Auston Matthews, captain John Tavares, Mitch Marner, Morgan Rielly, and Nylander—who collectively earn $54.15 million per season. Despite being together for eight years, they've only won one playoff series.
