Maple Leafs, Auston Matthews Agree To Five-Year, $58.17M Extension

Auston Matthews, fresh off news of a contract extension, scored what had looked to be the winning goal at 3-2 while Mitch Marner set up two others to press his case for a lucrative new deal. The Leafs and forward Auston Matthews agreed to a five-year contract extension that will keep Matthews in blue and white through the 2023-2024 season, the team announced on Tuesday. Matthews' annual cap hit is $634,000 more than fellow teammate John Tavares', who signed a seven-year, $77 million contract with the Maple Leafs this summer.

Marner said he hadn't read the Star, but professed to being happy with how the team is treating him. Everything has been positive. "The market will dictate the market at that time".

Toronto selected the six-foot, 175-pound right-winger with its first pick, No. 4 overall, in the 2015 National Hockey League draft. Matthews is fourth in points with 46, and second in goals with 23 behind Tavares.

Both Dubas and Ferris have said that negotiations between the two sides are on hold until the off-season so that Marner can focus on playing.

"We were playing well and then we just got careless and we never really seemed to be able to get it back", lamented Babcock, who liked his team's start. But for right now, we'll respect their wishes and we'll carry on with the season here. It's just an unfortunate thing that this article had to come out yesterday.

His agent, Darren Ferris, has said that they will wait until after this season to launch into serious contract talks with the Leafs. What is to say that there are GMs out there that will not try to offer sheet Mitch Marner to $12M for 7 Years, beating the Maple Leafs' projected offer not only in Salary but also term.

Northern Ireland also voted narrowly in favor of remaining in the European Union in 2016's referendum. Mr Juncker rejected giving the United Kingdom a way to unilaterally pull out of the backstop.

He was the 76ers' main target, but they also get 221cm giant Boban Marjanovic and forward Mike Scott from the LA side. According to O'Connor, that's not yet a done deal as there is some dispute over the protections of that draft pick.

Maroon 5 followed Big Boi's performance with their massive songs " Sugar " and " Moves Like Jagger " before a shirtless Adam Levine wrapped up their set.

"I have no doubt by the end of the season everything will work out, and Mitch will be, as (general manager) Kyle (Dubas) said, a Leaf for a long time", Ferris said. "This was a discussion that was about the summer. where offers are low, which is a normal course of business".

According to a club release, Melnyk told a Sens corporate event Tuesday in Toronto that the team's "current rebuild is a blueprint on how to bring the Stanley Cup home to its rightful place in Ottawa".

"We're not far off. Things ended on a positive note".

Ferris said he and the Leafs have spoken throughout the season, which again, he added, is standard practice.

"We've continued throughout the year to have some constructive discussions, not negotiating, about the marketplace", said Ferris.

It would only be speculation, but perhaps Marner's representation wants the key negotiation to be a little more knock-down, drag-out than the player that earned the contract expected. "We have a great management team and a great team in this locker-room and we all want - including myself - to be a Leaf for a long time and I'm sure that will happen".
