Should the Leafs be worried that the Marner situation dragging on?

Sport

The OverDrive guys discuss how patient the Leafs can be with Mitch Marner, and whether they could face a similar situation as with William Nylander last year.

    The price depends on how your team is built to win. The style you play, even though it's a team effort. The leafs are now a centre driven team with tavares setting the identity. I shouldn't even be telling anything this for free but w/e. Toronto is a unique team because tavares embodies everything the leafs represent now, midsize not so stuff but gritty. Powerhouse ability to score. However it just so happens that Toronto has Mathews which is also a centre and just as good and if not better. Marner drives your top line so hes more important that nylander if you want to look at it in that way as line 1 2 3 and 4 the top being the best. But I believe Toronto will do it's best by trading marner for the sake of defences and use nylander because you already overpaid him. Sorry dubs but you made a big boo boo. Centers get top dollar drivers or wingers get less money and your defense gets less than both because that is how the LEAFS are built you cant compare to other teams. If your team has amazing forward talent you defense does less or at least shouldn't have to worry as much. The money players make has to depend on how the team is built to win. Ams I'm only saying this because politics dominates right now and it will likely be a while before that changes otherwise I'd be paying the whole team the same amount.

    Who cares! These contracts are a joke all over the league. Where is the sport of hockey? It all boils down to $$. Lessons were learned when Nylander held out and ended up with a ridiculous contract and contributed nothing upon his return. Sit Marner out for the entire season if he fails to sign.

    No player is bigger than the team. He signs an offer sheet for ridiculous money then take the draft picks and move on and get over it. And Austin as great as he is needs to show up for the playoffs. They may have to move another player to make room. Dubas will figure it out as he has so far.

    ) Canadian Senate Bill S-240 passed the second reading in the House of Commons on International Human Rights Day on December 10. The bill would make it a criminal offense to receive an organ taken without consent of the donor. The punishment would be up to 14 years of prison. The bill also denies entry into Canada of those involved in illegal organ trafficking as immigrants or refugees. Members of Parliament debated and voted on the principle of the bill and referred the bill to the Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Development for consideration. The bill has already passed in the Senate in October. The next step is a third reading, after which the Bill will become law once it is given Royal Assent. Conservative MP Garnett Genuis introduced Bill S-240 in the House of Commons. MP Borys Wrzesnewskyj (front right) introduced a similar bill ten years ago.

    The Leafs own his rights for 4 more seasons. The only way he can sign anywhere else while he's an RFA is if he receives an offer sheet in which the Leafs can either match it to keep him or let him go and receive a bunch of draft picks from the team that he signed the offer sheet with. Basically, the Leafs can't lose him for nothing for the next 4 seasons.

    Marner was placed in the perfect situation. Playing with a C like Tavares who put up 47G will make your point count rise significantly. If Marner had even a 25 goal per year C, we wouldn't be having this conversation PERIOD. Tavares makes players around him better. Want proof? See Barzals point production since Tavares left. Marner is a fantastic play-maker, but his value is not as a C. 9.5M x 8 MAX.

    Oh btw, Matthew's played with 8 different wingers this past season and they took Hyman off his line and Nylander wasn't their. Marner played with Tavaras and Hyman ALL year. Marner had 3 points In game 1, 1 point in the remaining 6. Matthew's lead all in scoring with 5 goals and 6 points, playing way less ice time and different wingers. In game 7, with 5 minutes left in the game, Matthew's who had 5 goals, was at just under 16 minutes of ice time. Then played 3 mi and 20 odd seconds, in the last 5 minutes when the game was over. Babcock should have been fired for that alone.

    It seems simple to me. Give him the same as Matthews and call it a day. When Malkin was up, he got the same as Crosby because they were not going to allow somebody else to be higher paid than Crosby. Use the same logic here.

    Wait, Dubas ls supposed to sit around and do nothing, while Marner is being a suck. Dubas did a masterful job by getting rid of crazy contracts, making great trades, winning them all, signing players who make league minimum, can still play and making unreal contract deals, with kapanen, 3.2 over 3 years, but could have been offer sheeted 4 million plus, Johnnson 3.4 over 4 years and could have also been offer sheeted 4 million plus, signed kerfoot to 3.5 million a year, got Colorado to page half berry's contrac,signs Spezza, Agostino, Shore, Mikheyev, Kivihalme and have Harpur. Marchment, Korshkov, Bracco, Lindgren, Liljegren, Sandin, Duszak, Timashov, Hollowell Brooks ect. Are all great future players. Prospects are their. Dubas inherited these dumb contracts btw. Hes done an amazing job in his first year and a half as gm. Hes not going to cave to a ridiculous number for Marner. Wait for a team to offer sheet Marner and get 4 firsts. Or if under 9.5 over 5+ years, match it, if Marner even signs. Whats with laine wanting all this money? He just came off a 50 point season and had 30 goals. Go look at Matthew's goals per game, less ice time. 5v5 Goals. Overall goals. Would have had back to back 50 + goal seasons. Is a huge CENTER. Hes 5th in goals overall, missing 30+ games then all 4 ahead of him and is only 1 goal back of both Tavaras and McDavid, 9 back of kucherov, 22 back of Ovechkin, playing 30+ less games then all 4. 33 less then Ovechkin. Can Matthew's score 22 goals in 33 games? He can and was, starting this past season with 10 goals in 10 games 16 points. 34 goals in his previous year missing 20 games. He's just behind Ovechkin in goals per game, since he entered the league. He can also set plays up. His shot is unreal. Hes working on the opposite shoulder, like he did last summer on the other one, making him even bigger, stronger and his shot will have even more power behind it. He is 6"3', 223Ibs now. He might grow 1 more inch since hes only 21 and with the workout on that shoulder, will most likely get him to 6"4' 230 Ibs. Comparing Marner to Matthew's is comical. Marner should not get kucherov, kain, Ovechkin or Malkin Money. Hes not even rated in the top 10 wingers list. Hes rated 14th. Hes 22nd in Scoriing since he started and is not even close to Matthew's when it comes to poi ts per game. Matthew's is at 0.98 and Marner is at 0.92. If Matthews plays those 34 games, hes well over a ppg and a back to back 50 goal scorer.

    Should the Leafs offer sheet Tkachuk (Matthews' buddy) and let Marner rot for draft picks? I really like him, but Marner is not Matthews and for sure not Tavares. Marner is a super-Leaf as it is in his great financial/future interest.

PLaying on the fourth line?! that's his fucking coach mike babcock who decides that! Nylander spent time on the 4th line too and we never heard him whine about it. And he is not as good as Matthews or Tavares who both play a more important position than him and are the drivers on their lines. His dad and agent darren farris are insane! Kid is ruining his reputation.

    Man these guys hit the nail on the head. If Mitch doesn’t make as much as Mathews and Tavares, it’s not a good show for shanahan. Mitch is the fan favourite and has been the prototypical good Canadian boy, and consistently gets high paraise but no cake. This guy is every Canadian kid who ever laced the skates and if he doesn’t get rewarded for being gracious, and Canadian that hockey fans in Canada want to watch play the game, our game,, I’m sick of Canadians being the good guys and not getting rewarded for being best.

    One thing that is sure, is that unless Marner gets exactly what he wants, he will not sign before the other RFAs that he thinks that are not as good as him, in order to use their contract as leverage. So it won't happen before Laine, Tkachuck, Connor. Probably Point and Rantanen too, cuz if Marner signs at 10.0 and Rantanen gets 10.7, Marner will cry like a baby. At the same time, the other RFas I named above are waiting for him to set the market so they can also get more. My guess is Marner won't be at training camp on day 1. Doofas showed he had no balls last year with Nylander, not a chance that Marner won't get want he wants. It's gonna be a long summer and we all should stop watching these videos.
