Mitch Marner would have had enough of the Maple Leafs!

What's the problem in Toronto? Currently sitting in fifth place in the Atlantic Division despite playing a total of six games, the Maple Leafs have not been able to get their heads out of the water since their seven-game elimination against the Montreal Canadiens last spring.

One of the biggest concerns is the lack of production from star players Auston Matthews, John Tavares and Mitch Marner, who have just one goal and four points between them heading into Monday night's NHL games. Remember that the latter had already been at the center of criticism because of his performance in the playoffs and the relationship between Marner and the fans of the organization may have reached a point of no return.
It was informant Renaud Lavoie who reported the news on the set of the show JiC on TVA sports. According to what he saw and heard, the 24-year-old right winger is simply tired of wearing a Maple Leafs uniform, which could explain, at least in part, his recent lack of involvement...
Currently in the third season of a six-year contract and earning an average salary of $10,903,000 per year, Mitch Marner is slowly but surely seeing his name creep into trade rumours...
The question is whether a team is willing to pay the big bucks for a player with such a huge salary and only five goals in 32 career playoff games.
One thing is for sure, if a team decides to acquire him, they will have a very talented player on their hands, as Marner has no less than 359 points (including 103 goals) in 361 regular season games in the Bettman circuit. This young man has talent coming out of his ears. The only thing he lacks as of yet is the ability to take his game up a notch when the chips are down.
