I am sure those 13 million per offersheets to Mitch should be anyday now...

The issue With Marner, Point, Rantanen is no one wants to sign first. I doubt Leafs actually want Marner signed first despite Eks claim of a deadline.

You won't hear this one publicly, but I am told the Leafs have internally set an "end of July" deadline to come to terms with Mitch Marner...


you said the same thing about Nylander

LOL, as if someone who is actively involved in negotiations with Marner is casually texting inside information with you, Ek. Is this the same “source” who told you about the impending Marner offer sheets? What a joke.

Hours and hours for the past year the media told everyone teams were lining-up tp give Mitch an offersheet. LOL. What a bust.

No NHL team is giving-up 4 1sts. End of story.

So come August, I am curious what new revelation you will have on Marner when he is yet to be signed...

If it's the end of the story then shut up about it. My God you've been on this rant for days. No one cares.

2 things..

1) This is nonsense, Ek. I have a feeling that your "source close to the Leafs" is just some guy who lives in Toronto, in an overpriced one bedroom apartment near Scotiabank Arena. There's no way someone close to/ or in the Leafs organization would be slipping you these tidbits and ignoring guys like McKenzie, Dreger, Servalli etc.

2) I'm positive at LEAST one GM has unofficially presented Mitch with an offer sheet, which was too low for Mitch and his crew to even consider (during the interview period).

I hope this is true.. I can’t stand how these players are playing hard ball when they are being offered generational wealth. It’s sickening! And for what? Ego? You hear ppl say, “yeah but if you were in that situation you’d do the same thing”. Actually no, most ppl wouldn’t. I’m an elite sales person who makes an incredible amount of money. There was a time when my employer and I got into a contract negotiation over what amounted to 30K in lost income. If I hadn’t agreed, it would have damaged the operation and we wouldn’t have been able to afford the support we needed. Understanding this, I made a deal to lock in a high salary but dropped my commission. I gave up 30K in commission to have a guaranteed contract and so that my company could thrive. Giving us the resources to grow even bigger. Eventually seeing me make even more money.. these damn RFA’s are just spoiled little brats! Came from rich families and are full of entitlement! If he doesn’t sign soon, I hope the Leafs trade him to the desert and he loses all that marketing money! Screw this kid! I’m very close to writing him off and never being a fan of his again!

I can believe this... The Nylander negotiations were a complete disaster for the Leafs.

Marner stays, or is moved for some pieces. The longer these negotiations go, the worst it gets for the leafs.

Every time I read Ek’s comments, it’s the same losers over and over taking shots at him. If you guys think he’s full of sh*t then why are you reading it? Are you little boys victims of click bait? Ooooh poor little victims 😞 Grow up you dorks!

Says the idiot who swallowed $30K in commissions so his boss can get richer!!
You say you're an elite salesman! I call Bullpoop!
No elite sales man takes a $30K hit for the company....only idiots!
Unless you are offered some shares in the company or have that wage accrued for later.
My call is you are some low wage worker at Tim Hortons.
