Could Marner & Matthews Each Ask For A $8yr, $100M Deal?

"Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas told reporters this week that he was currently negotiating with Auston Matthews and his agent on a contract extension. The deal will likely be huge and set the tone for Mitch Marner's contract as well. Exactly how much can the duo ask for, it could get as high as an 8 year deal at $100million bringing a $12.5million AAV. McKenzie said that Marner's agent will start off with whatever Matthews signs for as a negotiating point. McKenzie admits he probably won't get it, he adds it's hard to make a case that Marner has been more valuable than Matthews even if he's registered more points. Do you think the Leafs can afford to take a cap hit of over $20million a year for both combined?
