William Nylander has officially left the Maple Leafs and there have been numerous reactions

After the very disappointing defeat of the Toronto Maple Leafs in the second round of the playoffs on Friday night, William Nylander really didn't waste any time deciding what he was going to do now that his season is over.

As soon as the Leafs were eliminated, the 27-year-old forward caught the next flight to Sweden to join his brother Alex and the national team for the senior World Championship.

Let's just say his abrupt departure has created a buzz in Toronto, with many considering it almost disrespectful that he didn't even spend a day between the team's elimination and his departure for the tournament.

The off-season promises to be eventful in Toronto, as a few key players on the roster will be in their final contract year next year, including Auston Matthews and of course Nylander.


Some believe that number 88's days with the Leafs are numbered, as he no longer seems to be in the good graces of the organization. Knowing that he is very likely to test the free agent market in the summer of 2024, it is increasingly plausible that he will be traded in the near future.
