Max Domi emerged as a key player for the Toronto Maple Leafs this season, delivering a solid performance on the ice. While his 47 points in 80 games and 4 points in 7 playoff games were commendable, it's his unique skill set that truly sets him apart.

At 29 years old, Domi embodies the qualities of an ideal playoff player. He's physical, aggressive, and unafraid to battle in the tough areas. But Domi isn't just about rough play; he's also an excellent playmaker with a knack for winning faceoffs.

During the latter half of the regular season, Domi found himself on the top line alongside superstar Auston Matthews. The chemistry between Matthews, Domi, and Bertuzzi made them the most effective line for the Leafs all season.

Domi's connection to the Leafs runs deep. His father, Tie Domi, was a fan favorite during his time with the team, known for his toughness and fighting skills. While Max may not be as renowned a fighter as his father, he still made his mark this season, racking up 118 penalty minutes, ranking 6th in the NHL.


As the season comes to a close, negotiations for a new contract between Domi and the Leafs are on the horizon. Both sides seem keen on continuing their partnership, but the question remains: what will it cost Toronto?

A contract with an average annual value (AAV) of $4.617 million over 3 years seems like a steal for a player who complements a generational talent like Matthews. Domi's performance this season didn't warrant a salary exceeding $5 million, making him an affordable option for the Leafs, especially if they can offload a larger contract.
