          10.6???? Anything over 9-9.5mil is a mistake. This bs talk and the dragging out of this nonsense is a joke. Sorry marner is great. But he’s a WINGER....and at 9-9.5mil is more than respectable for what he is.

          Enough with this Matthews comparison.

                    @The Distressed Muffin no sir I'm 60 years old, been a leaf fan for 40 years. Last year I held marner up there with Gilmour. Turns out doug has more class, heart in his big toe than marner has in his whole body.

                    These kids seem greedy these days. I mean if you get 9.5 mill a year even after getting raped by taxes you are still loaded.

                      Everytime I hear someone refer to Matthews as the face of the franchise , the best player on the team or now a candidate for CAPTAIN I think why, why do some believe this guy with a chronic shoulder and concussion issues who is unable to finish a season is the best thing since the cell phone.
                      Dubas made a mistake with Nylander ( No News) and also signed A.M. for too short a term for too much $, why.
                      Dubas understands that neither A.M. or W.N. care about being a Maple leaf which means they get what they want.
                      So now he holds Marner for ransom because Mitch has let it be known he is a " Leaf forever " Dubas and Shannahan are betting, and rightfully so, that Marner will not sign any Offer sheet and will sign with the Leafs, eventually. 
                      Sad isn't it when the guy who bleeds Blue and White gets the shaft!! Never tell your employer you are not going anywhere when you really mean it they will use it as Dubas is doing to Marner. Make no mistake Marner is the face of the franchise and the leafs best player and has avoided any serious injury and will continue to ensure the players around him have career years while providing the most on ice entertainment, he will continue to have the most endorsement value and baring serious injury will be unparalleled in modern Leafs history. IMHO

Please move on mitch and make way for players who want to play in Toronto

                              Everybody keeps saying all the other RFAs are waiting for Marner to set the market. Has ANYBODY ever thought that maybe the LEAFS are waiting for the other RFAs to sign. If its public info that everyone is waiting for Marner to set the market, obviously the Leafs know this too. So why cant the Leafs just say, NO, we're gonna wait all of you out and let YOU set the market?

                                @KNorth2 and on the other side if point signs for 9 mil right now the leafs use that as a comparable and bring down their offer. Its stupid but it really is a waiting game right now

                                @KNorth2 Media has a little bit to do with it but also Marner arguably has the most value and can demand the most money. These agents just want the biggest contract to get signed first so they use it as a comparable. If point signs right now for 9mil and then marner gets 11mil thats not good for points agent

                                @Mark Mark Why isn't everyone looking to Point to set the market? Or Rantanen? Or Laine? Why is it always Marner? The obvious answer is media. There is a difference between nobody wanting to go first which I believe is happening and this assumption that everyone is waiting on one specific player to set the bar

                                @KNorth2 Why not? Whats the rush to get signed? The agents job is to get the most money for their player. They don't owe the teams anything. Its still a business. If they wait for Marner to sign and set the market really high it gives them more leverage to ask for more money.

                                It's all a bs talking point anyway. Nobody is holding up their own negotiation waiting for Marner to sign and set the market.

                              You would think NHL hockey player's goal is to have their name on the Stanley Cup, that's what it's about. Money can't buy them a spot on the cup nor can it buy them a spot in the Hall of Fame. If you're serious about the game get on with winning, money won't buy it for you

                                They really should have thought about that before they gave Nylander that awful deal. Marner has proved himself while Nylander has not. Front office screwed up big time.

                                  I'm sure no one will read this or care because everyone has their opinion but players are worth what the market is willing to pay. I guarantee that if Mathews hit RFA there would have been many offer sheets at 12 mil thats why they got him signed but have you noticed there hasn't been a offer sheet for Marner? Marner is not worth more then Mathews or more then 10 Mil , I think Marner has done enough to be in the debate but the market states different

                                    If Marner's ego is what is driving him then he needs to go somewhere that he can feel like he is the center point of the team. Otherwise he will just become poison in the locker room. He is not the center point of this roster and if the Leafs hadn't given him a world class center to play with he would have had another 60 point year and would have happily signed for Nylanderish terms. TBH at this point I wish they could find someone to trade him to for more defensive assets. Even without Mitch there's plenty of offense in this team and $10 mil buts a lot of defenseman

                                      Mitch Marner should get more than auston Matthews he's a better player plain and simple and he's healthier if I was him I wouldn't sign for anywhere less than 11 I would put Le'Veon Bell siting out the whole year.

                                      Love the salary the old days Toronto could just buy a they can buy coaches etc..but at least we (smaller city NHL teams) are on a closer playing field..because of the cap..

                                        Mitch Money and Greedlander. The LeBron James and Michael Jordan of hockey ...Damn those Maple Leafs are lucky to afford the best in the league.

                                          Trade Marner to the West for a couple of stud D men and watch him try to play in the land of giants

                                          Matthews deserved 6 maybe 8million at the most and marner deserves no more then 9.5 but no less then 8million so even offering him 10 for 3 years is an overpayment in my opinion

                                            So much guffing around. Honestly, there ain’t one clever and thought-out take about Marner negotiation on Youtube. If you’re not providing any sorts of news about it than your opinions are worthless. Otherwise, I don’t understand why would anyone care about your opinions on this matter.

                                                Hot take, but Leafs are gonna have to trade one of MNM down the line if they want to be legit Cup contenders. You can't have near 40 mil tied to 4 guys who are all forwards. And no, we're not legit Cup contenders atm, our bottom 6 and defence are still not good enough and Boston has exposed that 2 years straight

                                                  Every single team has weaknesses. The Leafs are legitimate cup contenders.
                                                  Also the Bruins won because the penalty kill was historically bad/mis-managed.

                                                Marner and Ferris' are smoking crack if they don't realize Mitch cannot afford any kind of stretch of so/so hockey. The first slump and Leaf fans will be pelting both of them with frozen waffles. Not to mention the inappropriate, half drunken ramblings they'll face from Bill (never rose to anything above assistant GM) Watters on the post game shows. Why would you want to deal with that for a tiny bit more cash?

Marner can stop saying he wants to be TO bc he just wants to be paid period, none of us are buying it. At this point idc if he gets traded for 2-3 solid depth guys so we can just move on.

                                                      If Mitch Marner wants to stay with the Maple Leafs and sign a 5 year contract, he's a bigger fool than I thought. (PERIOD)

Just a huge distraction from the ultimate goal of winning the cup. If he felt that this team was a true cup contender, he would take his worth and not base his value off of a first overall pick. This is the best team we have had in years and they can't make it out of the first round and they all want superstar cash. Brutal!!

Any length in between, say 5 years at $10M is also a Marner's option. Leafs will not give Marner a Matthews equivalent deal though because Matthews is their franchise player.

Also, I kind of doubt any team wants to pay him what he's reportedly asking for.
