The NHL offseason has barely begun and the Toronto Maple Leafs are embroiled in contentious contract negotiations with a young, budding superstar. Wait… stop if you’ve heard this story before…

The Leafs, of course, went through this entire ordeal last offseason with William Nylander, this time around it’s Mitch Marner who is causing headaches for Leafs management. Nylander’s negotiations dragged out into the 2018-19 season with him signing at the eleventh hour, just minutes before the NHL’s December 1st deadline. The 22 year old ended up with a six year, $45 million deal with a $6.9 million annual cap hit. Marner… well let’s just say that his contract demands make Nylander’s look like child’s play. Marner is reportedly seeking a long term deal worth over $11 million per season. Yikes.

But, there’s another big difference in the Marner and Nylander negotiations… while Nylander returned home to Europe to train and wait out negotiations, Marner has elected to go wakeboarding instead…

Check out this video from Marner’s Instagram posted just yesterday:


Nice moves, kid. Now sign the damn contract!
