All out war for Maple Leafs' forward Mitch Marner is emerging

Published May 14, 2024 at 9:15 PM

After another brutal playoff performance from Toronto Maple Leafs' forward, Mitch Marner, a bidding war is on the rise for the star forward.

Mitch Marner is entering next season on an expiring contract and will make $10.9 million during that time. Within his contract it states that he is under a complete no move clause meaning that he may not be moved unless he gives permission to do so.

After being in the spotlight for having yet another below average performance in the playoffs a lot of fans and media are pointing towards Marner waiving his own no move clause and allowing himself to be traded elsewhere.

If the clause is waived by Marner there will definitely be no lack of offers coming Toronto's way. Marner will likely take a contract of the same size as his current contract ($10.9 million per year), and his role on a team is very valuable even with the lack of playoff production.

There has been rumours from just about half the league being interested and many more mock trades thrown around for the opportunity to add Mitch Marner to different rosters.

This tweet from fvc022 on X shows the amount of article titles suggesting trades for Mitch Marner across the league,

It should be noted that to add a player like Mitch Marner would be a great addition to any team even with the playoff woes. Marner is 3-time 90 point scorer. Marner is not only known for his offensive prowess but also his two-way game as he is a first line penalty killer for the Leafs.

With that being said, if Marner were to waive his no move clause, the Maple Leafs would not be short of suitors and Marner would likely end up somewhere where he would want to be.
