The Toronto Maple Leafs are expected to trade forward Mitch Marner this summer, and a new report reveals how they plan to get a massive return.

It's widely known in the hockey world that a Mitch Marner trade is anticipated this summer. Until now, the exact return has been unclear due to Marner's high salary and an upcoming bonus. According to insider David Pagnotta, the Maple Leafs are willing to take on more financially to get a bigger return from other teams.
One thing to consider, if Toronto goes down this path, they will want to maximize a return, and MLSE isn't afraid to flex their financial muscles and pay Marner's upcoming $7.25 million bonus before finalizing a trade.

Pagnotta also mentioned that Marner prefers to stay in Toronto and continue as a Maple Leaf. He believes that the front office will have discussions in the coming weeks to finalize their plans.
In speaking with those close to Marner's camp, it remains clear his desire to stay in Toronto has not wavered. I'm told Marner's preference and priority is to be with the Maple Leafs long-term. That's his goal. Do the Maple Leafs feel differently? That is what management will discuss and debate internally.

Once a decision is made, the Maple Leafs will likely begin discussions with other teams regarding Marner or start extension talks. Either way, reports will soon confirm the plan for Mitch Marner and the Maple Leafs.
