Mitchell Marner News. Maple Leafs Post: Mitch Marner . You would think the expectations that come with being a top draft pick of the Toronto Maple Leafs are tough enough without comparisons to Hockey Hall of Famer Doug Gilmour being added to the mix.

Is there an NHL asset more over -hyped than the NCAA free agent , specifically the Over -hyped is vastly different than overvalued .

In the midst of the chaotic Mitch Marner situation, you have to wonder, who's leading the charge? A better question might be who's the one setting the ridiculous value of Marner.

Sportnet's Andrew Berkshire might have the answer. Berkshire believes those around the 22 year-old winger think that he's worth the same type of money as some of the league's top players after just three seasons. As good as Marner is, claiming he's worth $10 million plus a year is seriously overvaluing him.

Like Berkshire stated, Marner is on the cusp of being one of the league's top wingers, but just isn't there yet. The whole situation is fueled by the fact that Marner isn't even the guy in Toronto drawing the most money.

Keep in mind that the Leafs still need to pay guys like John Tavares and Auston Matthews serious money. Especially now with Tyson Barrie, who's going to make solid paycheck when he becomes a UFA next year, they just don't have the ability to pay Marner double-digit millions.

Berkshire's central point is that Marner and his agent are asking for way too much with him being a RFA. Depending on how he performs this upcoming year, as well as how his relationship with the Leafs progresses, he could eventually make the money he wants when he becomes unrestricted.

If he and his group want him to get paid in Toronto, they're going to have to seriously lower their asking price.
