    Matthews is probably better, will get paid more, but I think you can say Marner is just as important to the team. He really drives play and sets a great work ethic.

    I am very appreciative that we get to watch this guy as Leafs fans, enjoy his game it doesn't come around often.

    Might also add that the kid was born at the perfect time. Imagine arriving to the league and this team about 6-8 years earlier.

    Not only the game has changed since but our management and the whole environment would have ruined this amazing and special talent to the ground. What a nightmare to even think about this.

    Marner's ask was 9 million x 8 before this season but apparently 9 million is what he'd accept on a short term deal now.

    Edit: According to Kypreos.

    The good thing about the Marner negotiations is that Rantanen, Laine, and Tkachuk are getting new contracts too. Might as well let them sign first and base his contract on theirs.

    i would have bought that rumor a lot easier if it came out in the summer and not mid Jan

    seems like Dubas/Shanny are leaking bs to cover up for there incompetence in contract negotiations

    Draisaitl makes 8.5.
    Marner on pace for 30 goals, 100 points.
    9 million isn’t to far off a guess.

    like i said , this should have come out in the summer if it was true not now after people are asking why they didn't sign him before the season

    Dubas/Shanny have been incompetent handling these negotiations and it's going to cost us the majority of our depth .

    Finally. I've said we should have a real appreciation thread for Marner since the start of the season. I can't say a bad word about the kid right now. The worst I've got is that he sometimes takes a bit long shifts. The rest is just love.

    Don't sweat the contract. Whatever he eventually gets, we'll make it work by shuffling other pieces.

    This Marner goal is a reason why he needs to keep shooting the puck a lot more.

    Good to see him shoot more because it keeps the goaltender and opposition guessing. If he continues to do this I wouldn't be surprised to see him hit 35 goals by the end of the season. JT is an elite passer so Mitch will get more than his fair share of good opportunities.

    If Marner keeps up his current pace 35 goals would be great, however I would be happy with 25-30, which is still more than his career high of 22 of last season.

    I remember Cassidy telling the media during that series that he sometimes catches himself just watching marner play during the game at times, or something funny like that.

    His slapperss are getting better as he gets older and stronger. I like him better then Matthew's. Super clutch and a joy to watch.

    My favourite hockey player by far right now. When I have to fast forward because I don't have enough time to watch the whole game in the morning, I at least try to watch every second with Mitch on the ice.

    I'm going to take a second to gloat here... All offseason I maintained that Marner is likely closer to Matthews than he was Nylander, but people kept thinking I was wrong...

    Speculation: - Nylander Contract Discussion Pt II - Any Day Now...
