The Toronto Maple Leafs have begun their journey to keep their core intact as the Maple Leafs have signed star Centermen Auston Matthews to a 5 year deal with an annual average salary (AAV) of 11.6 million per season.

Details of the contract are below as Per Bob MacKenzie:

Look for Mitch Marner to be next and although Marner’ camp has stated they don’t want to talk until the off-season, don’t expect the Leafs to not at least kick tires.

My prediction is Marner will get 2 offers…

a short term, probably the same as Matthews 11.5-11.6

or

a long term, probably 10.5 for 8 years.

wouldn’t be shocked to see Marner take the long term contract to help the team build.
