Toronto Maple Leafs to reportedly give Mitch Marner harsh ultimatum

Published June 10, 2024 at 7:33 PM

Per recent reports from Frank Seravalli, the Toronto Maple Leafs may bully Mitch Marner with a harsh ultimatum into a trade.

These were Frank Seravalli's words on the Daily Faceoff Podcast earlier today:

Frank Seravalli on the DFO pod on Marner:

"I think the Leafs are going to make a play and they're going to basically back him into a corner over the next three weeks that says Mitch it's been great but we're moving on, so whether it's now or eight months from now your times up"

The full interview with Frank Seravalli is available here:

The question of whether Mitch Marner can or cannot perform in the playoffs has forced this ultimatum, and this logic may force him to accept a trade.

If Mitch Marner can't grind through two weeks of playoff hockey without letting the pressure ruin him, what makes him think that he'll manage to get through 7+ months as a pending free agent in the most pressure-filled hockey market on the planet?
