Auston Matthews shares he's not always a fan of this part of William Nylander's game

Auston Matthews is arguably a top 5 player in the National Hockey League today and signing his next contract this off-season proved his commitment to the Toronto Maple Leaf organization, something Willam Nylander has trouble showing with his contract negations, and it seems not everyone likes Nylander's laid back attitude all the time.

During Auston Matthew's presser he had this to say regarding William Nylander's attitude all the time; take a look.


Funniest moment from Auston's presser was McGran asking if he hoped everyone could be as relaxed and chill as Willy is at all times? "To an extent, for sure." .... LMAO. He is not a fan of Willy's chilly nature at "all times". Needs some fire under his arse.

Having a laid back disposition can be an asset for sure, but being that way at all times can send the wrong type of message to be sure and it seems like Matthews isn't a fan of Nylander's ‘chill' demeanour.

It sounds like he thinks that a little bit more work would be an asset to the team. Either way, I think both players could learn something from each other. Matthews could teach Nylander to take the game more seriously and Nylander could teach Matthews how to relax a little bit during the season.
