Toronto Maple Leafs head coach Craig Berube shared some interesting thoughts about Mitch Marner today.

Marner has been in the spotlight this summer as the 27-year-old has just one year left on his contract, creating a tough situation for the Leafs. This has led to many conflicting rumors about his status. However, Berube's comments suggest Marner is staying. The Stanley Cup-winning coach said:
Craig Berube on Mitch Marner: "He's a character guy. He's a great person. Obviously, a great player. I'm looking forward to coaching him."

Fans reacted predictably, interpreting this as a sign that Marner isn't being traded. They argue that Berube wouldn't make such comments if Marner were leaving:
This comment is not made if he was being traded...
People were wrong saying he's being traded.

On the other hand, some fans think Berube's comments don't necessarily indicate Marner's future. They point out that Berube had to say something positive when asked about Marner:
What else is he supposed to say when asked about Mitch who's still a leaf?

«Yeah, he's a soft permitter player when it matters most. Have you guys seen his stat line in games 5-7? I hope he gets traded asap»

Despite the debate, the prevailing belief is that Marner will be on the Leafs roster for opening night next season. This could change by the trade deadline, but it's unlikely unless the season goes very poorly. Many Leafs fans are surprised they are going into another season with the core-four intact:
It's not April 1st, right? I can't believe
we are doing this for another year 🙃

Stay tuned this summer to see if the Maple Leafs make any other major moves.
