Marek: “And we’ll end up the information phase with this title and this gained’t get a lot consideration. Mitch Marner. Not too long ago photographed in a …”

Friedman: “Espresso store.”

Marek: “Espresso store within the west finish of Toronto with head coach Craig Berube. What’s your spidey sense saying on Mitch Marner and Toronto, Elliotte?”

Friedman: “So everyone is de facto attempting to not pour gasoline on the fireplace right here, Jeff, so let’s do it.”

Marek: “No, right here we go. Cracking it open. Who’s acquired the matches?”

NHL Rumors: Pittsburgh Penguins and Toronto Maple Leafs

Friedman: “Everyone’s attempting to be actually cautious right here. However one of many issues that just a few folks have informed me is, to not be stunned if this performs out over subsequent season with Marner in Toronto.

Now, there’s a number of time between right here after which and issues can all the time change however that is such a fragile dialog between participant and group as a result of everybody is decided to seem like a winner right here.

The Leafs are decided to both make a very good commerce or with the cap room that’s created by that commerce, do one thing massive that they know they will’t afford to have a swing and a multitude with this one. And likewise the participant is decided, and extra importantly, the folks across the participant are decided to do that, that make themselves look good, that they’re not going to conform to something that they suppose places them in a foul mild. So it is a actually sophisticated factor entering into.

I need to throw a pair different factors on the market to you. Primary, I feel that there’s some actual concern about how the Toronto followers will react to Marner if he begins subsequent 12 months, unsigned. And you may’t keep away from that, and you recognize, some folks and me, I’m the sort of one who’s like, look if you wish to guess on your self, guess on your self. I’ve been on myself earlier than. Different folks have guess on themselves earlier than. If that’s what Marner desires to do, I feel he has all the correct on the planet to do it.

However he has to know that a few of the fan base isn’t going to react very properly to that and it’s important to play by way of which are you snug with that? Are you able to deal with that? And I do imagine that’s one of many issues that’s been mentioned.

And I feel with the Maple Leafs, the opposite situation that they’re coping with right here and I feel there are folks within the group who really feel very strongly about this, is that they traded Nazem Kadri a few years in the past once they had been mad at him. And look, Kadri  acquired suspended twice in a row. There, there are individuals who felt very strongly on the time that they needed to make that commerce. However Nazem Kadri went some place else, sorted himself out, was a essential member of a Stanley Cup champion, and is a participant that Toronto very a lot missed after he left. And I feel there are folks within the group who’re taking a look at this and imagine may this be Kadri 2.

The place Marner goes some place else, the highlight is much less intense. He learns the way to steadiness every thing and goes out and turns into a key participant on a Stanley Cup champion in one other metropolis. Which I do imagine may occur. To me that could be a very official factor. That Marner may go some place else quieter and actually thrive.

I feel he’s a fantastic participant. And I feel he may turn into an excellent higher participant with out the highlight. And I do suppose there are folks within the group who’re very frightened of the potential of that occuring. And I feel that’s a part of the background to all this.

So seem like, if the contract calls for on either side are loopy. It’s going to result in an eventual divorce anyway. However I, I’ve to inform you, I, I don’t suppose there’s a sure manner, I do know there’s individuals are like 100% he’s getting traded. On Sunday, June the 2nd, I don’t know that I’m so sure of that.

And I feel one of many greatest challenges listed below are going to be the, kind of like the sentiments of everyone concerned. I simply suppose that that is going to take a number of diplomacy for lots of people to do correctly.”

Marek: “It is a, you’re proper, it is a delicate one. You all the time run the danger on this scenario of going into subsequent season, clearly with no contract after which right here come the howls of, I’ll simply be blunt Elliotte, Muskoka 5 the sequel.

And the way do you deal with skating by way of that? Such as you keep in mind when that occurred, and people had been some you recognize, veteran gamers with some fairly stiff spines. You realize, Mats Sundin, Bryan McCabe and Darcy Tucker.

I feel should you’re each you’re the participant and the group, I don’t suppose you need the participant to undergo that and I don’t suppose you need the group to undergo that. That’s why this one has the potential to be a firecracker. And that’s why I agree with you after I say this one is a extremely tough one.”

NHL Rumors: Toronto Maple Leafs, and the New York Rangers

Friedman: “Yeah.”

Marek: “… to type out.”

Friedman: “Yeah. As a result of anytime there’s a report that paints one facet in a foul mild or says this one particular person has to do that.”

Marek: “Sure.”

Friedman: “I feel folks get their backs up.”

Marek: “I agree. All proper. That may be a story that won’t go away.”
