After months of negotiations, Marner signed a deal at an average of $10.893 million a year (all dollars U.S.).

It's the middle of September and Mitch Marner and the Toronto Maple Leafs are still sniping back and fourth about a potential new contract. Based on the latest reports, however, maybe the Leafs were in the right after all.

Toronto has offered seven- and eight-year deals with an average annual value of around $11 million to the 21-year-old Marner, but he is still holding out hope that he could get a deal that surpasses that of... yes, Auston Matthews!
