The drama continues when it comes to the Mitch Marner contract situation.
Marner is expected to meet with a couple of teams as the restricted free agent interview window opens.
Would he be willing to sign an offer sheet and turn his back on his hometown team?
It might be hard with the numbers being brought up.
According to NHL insider Darren Dreger, an NHL executive has told him a team could prepare an offer sheet that would be as high as $13-14million a season for five years.
This would be a price that Leafs' general manager Kyle Dubas would without a doubt pass on.
At that high price, Dubas would likely prefer the four first round picks.
Do you see a team signing Marner to this type of deal?
Dreger says on TSN1050 that there are 3 teams meeting with Marner for sure and maybe a 4th. Dreger says that an agent and a NHL exec told him could be an offersheet "in the teens". 13, 14Mx5 years. If another team wants to pay 13M+4 1sts for Marner they can go right ahead lmao
