          Toronto will trade him before this contract is done so they don’t end up in a reverse Tavares situation.

            Nobody like ovi anymore? Leave after 5 years of playoff disappointment? Pfff. Took ovi 13 years of nothing but criticism. The summer before the cup winning season sportsnet was saying Washington should trade ovi before it's too late. The guy was relentless is winning with the team that drafted him.

                Auston Matthews is a Leaf for the foreseeable future. But, . Why not hockey? He is the first Mexican/American in the sport. He scored 4goals in his first game. The boy turned himself into a legend in year 1, When he lifts the cup over his head with the "C" on his jersey the entire hockey world better be proud. He embodies it, He lives it, He embraces it. And, as a 23 year old, handles it better than you can. AM34

                      If he cannot delivers the Leafs further in the playoffs, Dubas will cut him loose by trading him.

                        If he is going home after 5 years you trade him in 3 years period..... you don’t ever let him walk and get nothing for him. And if they win a cup with him you still don’t let him walk and get nothing for him

                          I think how long he stays in Toronto depends on whether or not Toronto becomes legit contenders in the next 5 years. If Toronto has 5 years of getting KOed in round 1, why would he stay? If Toronto starts making some deep playoff runs, he will probably stay a few more years for a chance to win it all.

                          Of course, This is if you leave the decision up to Matthews. If I was Dubas, I would not do that. If Arizona wants Matthews that bad, let's make a deal. The kind of deal that the Nordiques/Avalanche got for Eric Lindros... uhhh No Kessel.

                                        His comment about the Coyotes was just conversation for nothing. He may well leave for Arizona but this conversation doesn’t suggest than he is thinking about it more than anyone else is.

                                            Joey Pereira would have been worth the 6 years especially in jersey sales !

                                            Or in 6 years, McDavid says screw this I'm going elsewhere, like Toronto. Especially if Nylander, Marner or Matthews leaves.

                                                            Mathews wont leave toronto if Arizona is an ass team. Its just like Tavares probably wouldnt have came to toronto if we still had our 2014 roster.
                                                            I think its the fact that we built our team up that got Tavares thinking to come home

And let’s be real your rosters pretty much garbage chychrun was suppose to be elite he’s max going to be a top 4 crouse could be a bust and Strome is better then schmaltz he just needed out of the dumpster fire 😂

And he may be very accident prone and may never amount to much more than what we see. Especially if the League again pushes muscle over finesse.

I guess they got all they could outta marner for now so they moved on to Mathews.#AugustHockey😴😴☹😅
