When the Mitch Marner saga came to an end, some believed that it would move along some of the other restricted free agent negotiations around the league.

That may not be the case for two Finnish forwards, who are currently training overseas. Mikko Rantanen and Patrik Laine are both practicing with SC Bern of the Swiss NLA, and don’t appear close to new deals with the Colorado Avalanche and Winnipeg Jets, respectively.

In fact, their agent Mike Liutjoined Sportsnet radio Wednesday morning and talked about the negotiations, bluntly stating that they’re “not close” on either player. Liut went on to draw comparisons for one of his clients to Marner:

Jets ‘not worried yet’ about Laine, Connor deals but season closing in

Jets ‘not worried yet’ about Laine, Connor deals but season closing in While the Jets — who’ve been gathering in Winnipeg for informal skates for a number of days now — would love to have their teammates Patrik Laine and Kyle Connor twirling around the ice with them, everyone understands the reality of the situation.

In this episode I bring you the latest news on Patrick Laine and Mikko Rantanen 's contract negotiations! What they are asking for and potential trade

After the Leafs have signed Mitch Marner, Colorado and Winnipeg are looking at a crisis with their RFAs, as Mikko Rantanen and Patrick Laine are not close to signing with their respective teams. The brothers both give their reasons why the Jets should not sign Laine .

"I think that Mitch Marner and Mikko Rantanen are probably the two closest comparables in terms of how they play the game. Where you have wingers that are adept at creating offense for those that they’re playing with. They do it maybe a little bit differently. Mikko’s 225 (lbs) and Mitch is not, but Mitch is a carrier and a great player. The Leafs have really looked into the future. You’re going to have a salary cap at $81.5MM, there’s no growth factor, one half of one percent. History has shown what the league does on a year-over-year basis, it’s going to 2.5% revenue growth.

"Your top line, your top three players whether they’re defensemen or forwards are going to be in that range that the Leafs have created."

Liut also discussed how teams are going to have to roll through players on a more constant basis in order to keep their top players paid. Laine and Rantanen both certainly want to be compensated like top players, and it’s easy to see why. Laine has scored 110 goals in his three-year career, one of the highest rates in the league thanks to his incredible shot and ability to float away from traffic at the right time. Though his overall point totals declined sharply last season, goal-scorers are rewarded handsomely in the NHL and Laine should be no different.

Looking at Mikko Rantanen's restricted free agency situation

Looking at Mikko Rantanen's restricted free agency situation Avalanche winger Mikko Rantanen is now the top remaining restricted free agent following the signings of quite a few players around the league over the past few days. While it’s possible that those moves could get the ball rolling on a new deal for him, the likelier scenario at this point is that it doesn’t. Here is a look at Rantanen’s situation. The 22-year-old is coming off his second straight season with over 80 points, a feat that not many players have reached in recent years. He also played quite well in the postseason where he led the team in scoring with 14 points in a dozen games.

Rantanen, meanwhile, has become one of the most impressive offensive players in the league, recording 171 points over the last two seasons. While some of that is because of his time with Nathan MacKinnon, there’s no doubting Rantanen’s talent. The 10th overall pick from 2015, Rantanen stands 6-foot-4 but has the puck skills and playmaking ability often associated with much smaller players. Even in the playoffs where young players often struggle, the Colorado forward led his club with 14 points in 12 games and was a force on the ice on almost every shift. If his camp truly sees a direct comparison to Marner, they must be looking for a pretty big raise. The Toronto Maple Leafs forward recently signed a six-year deal worth more than $65M, putting him among the top handful of salaries ($10.893M AAV) in the NHL.

While both are practicing overseas at the moment, Liut downplayed the idea that either one would sign with a European club even if the contract included an NHL-out clause. That should settle some nerves in Colorado and Winnipeg, but if contracts aren’t close at this point, there should be real concern that the Finns will miss a good chunk of training camp or perhaps even the start of the regular season.
