Maple Leafs reporter Nick Alberga has cleared the air on the recent Mitch Marner rumour regarding a 9-team no-trade list submission.

Earlier this week, a tweet had circulated suggesting that Mitch Marner had given Leafs GM Brad Treliving a list of 9 teams he'd be willing to waive his NMC for.
Now, The Leafs Nation's Nick Alberga, host of "Leafs Morning Take", is vehemently denying that the rumour has any validity whatsoever.
There has been a ton of speculation over what will happen regarding Mitch Marner this summer. In all likelihood, given the complexities of facilitating a trade of that magnitude, Marner will be back to play out the final year of his current deal in Toronto, perhaps even with an extension being worked out. However, we can't outright dismiss the idea of a potential trade either.
The Leafs struggled to score once again this year in the postseason, with Mitch Marner playing a key role in those struggles. The 10.9 million dollar man produced just 1 goal and 3 points across 7 games against the Boston Bruins. This is simply unacceptable, given the role he is expected to play for this team.
It will be up to Marner, who holds a full no-movement clause, to figure out what's next. If he wants to waive, a fresh start won't be hard to find. If he doesn't want to waive, Marner will need to re-evaluate how he plays the game in the postseason, because this season, he played well below the level of expectation placed upon him against Boston.
