Mitch Marner is unlikely to remain a Toronto Maple Leaf for much longer as an expert predicts he will command a salary way beyond Toronto's cap room.

There's no doubt that Mitch Marner is one of the elite scorers in the game. Expert Jon Steitzer predicts Marner will demand a salary too high for the Maple Leafs to fit under their cap, likely leading GM Brad Treliving to execute a trade.
What a Mitch Marner contract extension could look like

Marner is entering the final year of his contract, earning $10.9 million. Even without a raise, retaining him at that salary will be challenging for the Leafs. Treliving likely won't want to risk losing Marner in free agency for nothing. Therefore, if talks stall, a trade may be the only option, and there's already been a lot of trade talk surrounding Marner this off-season.
Barry Trotz tells @JaredStillman there's truth to the rumors of Preds being in on some big names on the trade market.

He mentions a "prominent player in Toronto" as "people trying to connect dots" but also lists reasons why someone like Mitch Marner would want to come to NSH.

Leafs fans hope to see more goal celebrations by Marner next season, but based on recent remarks by experts and the Leafs' cap situation, it seems increasingly unlikely.
