After that heartbreaking loss in Game 7, William Nylander opened up about the injury that sidelined him for the series' first three games.

Nylander revealed he was dealing with a serious head issue and eye migraines.
It wasn't just a matter of seeing clearly," he said. "I couldn't see *at all*. With ocular migraines, your vision just falls apart. You're trying to look at someone's face, and all you see is a quarter of it. The rest is filled with shiny, flashing lights and squiggles. It's awful.

As for the loss, Nylander didn't mince words.
Look, I don't think there's an issue with the core. I think we were right there all series. We battled hard and took it to Game 7 and OT. It's just a crappy feeling.

Nylander scored twice in Game 6 to save the Leafs season and had the icebreaker in Game 7 for Toronto to give them a 1-0 lead in the third period.
Yet it wasn't enough as they were goal short. Now the question is what happens to the Leafs' core of Auston Matthews, captain John Tavares, Mitch Marner, Morgan Reilly, and Nylander, who make $54.15 million combined per season. They've only won one playoff series in the eight years together.
