Toronto and William Nylander can not agree on a new contract.
Negotiations between the Canadian club and the striker have stalled, according to insider Elliott Friedman.
According to the reporter, the contract will not be signed in the near future, unless one of the parties abruptly withdraws from its position.
Previously reportedthat the Swedish striker considers himself worthy of a salary of around $10 million a year. The Maple Leafs are willing to offer $8 million a year.
Friedman believes that William Nylander does not want to make a discount to stay with Toronto because the other top hockey players on the team did not.
The forward has one year left on his current deal with a $6.96 million cap hit.
Last season, the Swede updated all personal performance records, gaining 87 (40+47) points in 82 regular season games. In 11 playoff games, he added another 10 (4+6) points.
