Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas has a full plate in front of him as he heads into his first offseason as Leafs GM. He'll have to make decisions on James van Riemsdyk, Tyler Bozak and Leo Komarov, he'll have to try and strengthen up his defense and possibly land a third line center. He's also got to sign restricted free agent William Nylander to a new contract while looking at possibly giving Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner extensions before their contracts are up next summer. As of right now, getting Marner an extension doesn't seem to be on the top of the list. While speaking with Kevin McGran of The Star, Marner confirmed that there's been zero contract talk between his side and the Leafs. "Nothing has been said yet, but nothing you can do. If nothing happens, you still have a year to play under your rookie contract. Just go out there and try to prove you can make the team better."
The youngster was also asked about the much talked about meeting between Matthews and head coach Mike Babcock. "Coaches and players need to have relationships. Babs is one of the most respected coaches around the world. I think people are overthinking it. I don't think anything crazy of it. A coach meeting with a player, it happens all the time. Players and coaches meet."
Recent reports had Mitch Marner looking to land around $10million a season.
