How long will contract impasse last for Marner, Maple Leafs?

How long will contract impasse last for Marner, Maple Leafs? And questions on defense and behind the bench in Toronto.

Mitch Marner 's contract will set the market ceiling, but just how high will it get? If the Leafs ink Marner to a five-year contract , Matthews, Marner and Nylander would all become UFAs in the same And it appears , at least for now, that Marner ’s camp have their sights set on a shorter term.

Fresh off his much-publicized contract impasse with the Maple Leafs, William Nylander shared some words of William Nylander has some contract advice for Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner . And with two young teammates due for fresh contracts at season’s end , Nylander now finds himself in a

The Mitch Marner summer saga has now continued partway through September and doesn’t seem to have an end in sight. Darren Dreger and Bob McKenzie of TSN both took to Twitter to explain the situation Wednesday morning, with the latter confirming that the team made seven- and eight-year offers in the “$11MMAAV universe” but Marner’s camp refused them because of a comparison to Auston Matthews. Matthews of course signed for five years at an $11.634M cap hit during the season.

The player’s camp is focused on a three-year deal with a high salary in the third season, a contract blueprint made popular by Timo Meier earlier this summer. The high salary in the third year guarantees a big qualifying offer that can take the player right into unrestricted free agency if they so choose. With the Maple Leafs opening camp this week, it certainly seems like Marner will not be there to take part in the early sessions.

Dubas 'hopeful' Marner will sign ahead of training camp

Dubas 'hopeful' Marner will sign ahead of training camp Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas is optimistic about getting restricted free-agent forward Mitch Marner signed to a new deal before training camp begins Sept. 13. “We’ve continued to have dialogue with (Marner's agent) Darren (Ferris) as recently as last week," Dubas said in an interview with TSN's Bob McKenzie. Marner is among several talented restricted free agents that are still without contracts, and the 22-year-old has already said he "probably won't" attend training camp without a new deal.

Mitch Marner believes the young, star-studded core of the Toronto Maple Leafs can stay intact. Whether or not the NHL's salary cap and future contract demands allow it is another matter entirely. Leafs Matthews, Marner staying out of Nylander contract impasse : 'That's why we have agents'.

  • Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic notes that the NHL and NHLPA are meeting for the third consecutive day as they continue to try and work out what will happen with the Collective Bargaining Agreement. The players have until Sunday to decide whether they want to exercise their clause to reopen the CBA for negotiation, which would effectively opt-out of the agreement after the 2019-20 season. If not, the deal would run until September 2022, giving the two sides plenty of time to work out an extension or new agreement.
  • Peter Chiarelli hasn’t landed a new GM job, but will be working in a front office this season. Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports that the former Edmonton Oilers executive will serve as a consultant for the St. Louis Blues. Chiarelli has worked as a GM for both Edmonton and the Boston Bruins, where he won a Stanley Cup in 2011.

Pressure to perform: Marner extension signals go time for Leafs.
Exhale, Leafs Nation; the great standoff has ended. Mitch Marner is a very rich young man and the Toronto Maple Leafs have a long-term commitment from one of the best hockey players on the planet. That’s the stripped-down, unemotional truth of Friday evening’s $65.4-million news dump. The Marner-Leafs soap opera is over and both sides, generally speaking, got what they wanted without causing too much damage to egos involved, the on-ice product, or the fan base. It's now go time for the franchise. As the preseason ramps up, the business of hockey can finally be set aside for another day. Marner's six-year extension worth $10.9 million annually is front-loaded.
