Mitch Marner Extension Or NMC Unlikely To Scare Off Vegas’ Potential Pursuit

The Golden Knights are facing many franchise-altering decisions this offseason, but they aren’t alone. While Golden Knights fans are anxiously waiting for a Jonathan Marchessault extension, fans in Toronto are hoping their team unloads one of the NHL’s top line forwards. After another first-round exit Toronto Maple Leaf center Mitch Marner has become the target of local fans. The career 1.11 points per game player would be a fit for any team, including the Golden Knights. However, it would take some creativity by both clubs.

It’s a huge couple of days on the calendar that I think are under the radar. A lot of the things that end up happening at the Draft or on July 1st, those conversations were born this week in Buffalo at the combine. You can see all of the agents talking to GMs, GMs meeting with GMs. It’s all sort of playing out this week. – Pierre LeBrun on TSN OverDrive

Now, there is nothing directly linking Vegas to Marner, but I think all of us would agree, you cannot count the Golden Knights out on any available player. You name him, Vegas inquired. So, it’s safe to guess both first-round victims have been in communication. Like LeBrun reported, maybe the seed was planted for a future transaction.

All options remain on the table. Marner could certainly still be with the Leafs in camp. He could be with the Leafs in camp with an extension and they could also get a trade offer that they cannot ignore. All of those things are options. Anything can happen. –LeBrun on TSN OverDrive

We’ve seen the Golden Knights front office make an 11th-hour deal in 2018. Late in September, Vegas traded for veteran sniper Max Pacioretty to beef up their second season offense. The team immediately offered Pacioretty a four-year, $28M contract extension too. That would likely be the scenario if Vegas were to acquire Marner from the Maple Leafs. In 2019, the Golden Knights also negotiated an extension with Mark Stone before he accepted the trade with Ottawa. On multiple occasions, Vegas felt comfortable rewarding a player before he ever skated on T-Mobile Arena ice. What’s wrong with one more?

Marner has a full no-move and controls a lot of the cards. They may go to him with a trade offer over the next month or two and Marner will say yes or no. There isn’t a single team in the league that would want to make a tangible trade offer without knowing or thinking they can extend Mitch Marner. That’s a very underplayed part of all of this. –LeBrun on TSN OverDrive

One thing common among most of Vegas’ star players is they were offered lucrative deals with no move clauses. Jack Eichel, Tomas Hertl, Alex Pietrangelo and Mark Stone have full no move clauses. Ivan Barbashev, Noah Hanifin, William Karlsson, Brayden McNabb and Shea Theodore have no trade clauses. Not all were offered by Vegas, however they have shown they’re not fully opposed to them. If a possible deal developed with Toronto, a NMC would not get in the way of their pursuit for Marner.

The stud Maple Leaf isn’t the only significant player possibly available this summer. If the Golden Knights were to go big game hunting, they would have options. How would Leon Draisaitl or Mikko Rantanen look in gold? We’ll leave the salary cap gymnastics and empty cupboard obstacles to the decision makers at CNA.

  4. Mike StG

    I think Elias Lindholm makes a lot of sense if they don’t re-sign Marchie. Nucks probably won’t be able to sign him, and he’s projected in the 6.5M range which would be affordable. He’s scored 40g and been a ppg player, usually a plus. Needs to be on a line with good players though, and would fit on either L1 or L2.

    I could see Vegas trading Theo to NJD for their #10 pick plus a 2nd and/or 3rd. Then possibly trading both 1st round picks for the upcoming draft to get into the top 4-8 position. Although I wonder whether they are really that focused on the future and prospects.

    • knights fan in minny

      devil’s need goaltending

    • Emmanuel

      Spmething BIG is coming at the draft. A 1st, 3rd, Theodore, Howden, Doro/Cotter & Whitecloud to SanJose for Celebrini? I know its a stretch but they could flip Theo for more picks.

      • knights fan in minny

        have you been drinking

        • Emmanuel

          Iced Tea. Do you think its an overpayment or underpayment or undoable in this day and age?

          • knights fan in minny

            sharks are not giving up that number 1 pick

  5. ThG

    marner says he likes toronto, don’t ask me why

    odds are he’s staying

    now back by popular demand

  6. DeezNutz

    Knights fan in minny mouse LOVES Mitch Marner.

    • knights fan in minny

      fuck you pillow biter piece of shit loser you and alex are the same person how do i know your both piece of shit losers so fuck off asshole

      • Alex

        It’s “you’re” trailer park pride guy

        • knights fan in minny

          fuck off piece of shit loser go hassle people on some other site you clueless fucking dirtbag

  7. Forget all the mental gymnastics of acquiring ….signing…and holding on to a player
    that very well could help in the short run…but what happens in the longer run…what happens is the team turns into the sharks with too much frontloaded on 4-5 guys….yes our window is still open for the next 2-3 years….and yes do what is necessary to strengthen that possibility…if we dont sign Marchy and i still say he stays for $6 million per for 3 years…take that money and invest in two 50-60 point depth guys that can solidify our third line if Cotter should not be the answer there…i think he is going to come back a much better all around player this year…I think our 4th line is set with Roy Kolesar and Morelli…July should be an interesting month!!

    • Emmanuel

      Its a darn shame, Roy is wasted on the 4th line but Vegas gotta do the “we roll 4 lines” thing. Id rather see Howden C the 4th and Roy on 3rd line LW. Hes being wasted on junk minutes…….

  8. Sajid Ramidi Khanpour

    knights fan in minny, please take this advice from a friend.

    Take a deep breath and relax and read some of your comments. You are beginning to sound like an angry crazy person. The hockey god used to go crazy all the time and tell multiple people posting that they are the same person. I think most people here like talking hockey with you.

    • knights fan in minny

      hey asshole you are not my friend stupid shit i told you that many times wake the hell up yom kapur tell that asshole alex to stop being a clueless douche bag you are probably alex aka yom kapur if not mind your own business nut job

    • knights fan in minny

      far from crazy i don’t take shit from assholes who com on here and think they are funny trying to antagonize others the ass clowns know who they are

  9. Sajid Ramidi Khanpour

    And now a comment on hockey. Jason Pothier, I appreciate your article but you said that Mitch Marner is a center. He is not. He is a right winger.

    The thud of Eddie’s body hitting the fender of the truck woke me up.

    Where I sat, in the passenger seat of the cab, it was dark and cold. Outside, some kind of light gleamed down over Eddie and a man I’d never seen before, talking. Laughing. Big lacy flakes of snow fell around them, fluttering into and out of the glow like moths.

    Whoever this guy was, he took Eddie in his arms and pushed their foreheads together, kissing him softly, and then bringing more passion to the party like he couldn’t help himself. Like he was starving and Eddie was a tree of perfectly ripe peaches and he just had to have some or die. The bulge in his pants concealing his meat missile was something that I lusted for.

    Eventually, he pinned Eddie against the truck and held his face between big knobby hands. He pressed steamy openmouthed kisses on Eddie’s lips. Then slowly he knelt down and engulfed Eddie’s rocket launcher sized erect penis into his warm moist mouth.

    Eddie. I’d spent a lot of years trying not to imagine what he looked like horny, but there he was, lit up like a neon sign because of another man. He looked damned good. Handsome and happy. Kind of fierce.

    I wished he looked at me like that, or someone would, anyway. Someone not Eddie. Someone else, fierce and fine like Eddie, but not.

    I’d lived with him, bunked with him, eaten and camped out, and gone drinking and chasing tail with him—or so I thought—and he never let on he was gay until just recently.

    Now, Eddie’s naked hunger made whole my body tighten. He looked alive in a way I’d never seen him before, and damn. The sight of him like that made me think things I had no business thinking and want things I could never have.

    But right then, whether I had any business thinking about Eddie didn’t stop me imagining I was on the receiving end of his kisses.

    I must be drunker than I thought.

    While I watched, Eddie and the stranger changed positions, and Eddie sank to his knees in the snow. He must have been digging into the stranger’s jeans in the shadows where I couldn’t see because seconds later, Eddie tilted his head, diving and pulling back, bobbing up and down, and leaving trails of saliva and steam on the man’s cock.

    The stranger’s head tipped back on his shoulders and his hat fell off.

    Seemed like a nice face. A lived-in face, the way it was frosted by light and pitted by shadow.

    He hung there, mouth slack, blowing billows of fog toward the sky. He looked like a weathered graveyard angel getting serviced by my friend Eddie—a man I’d never known at all.

    When the stranger’s climax came, I saw but didn’t hear his shout of joy. He clutched Eddie’s head to his groin, while Eddie worked himself, quaking with whole-body shudders in the shadows. It didn’t take long before he went still. Afterward he stood up, sagging into the stranger’s arms. They rocked against the truck where I sat, mesmerized by them.

    They exchanged foggy kisses and whispers that filled the air around their faces and shielded them from prying eyes like mine.

    I was ashamed, but for wanting, not for spying.

    I’d woken partly from the jolt of Eddie’s body, and partly because it was real strange for me to be there in the first place.

        HYPOCRISY?? Anyone can post Offensive CRAP, right?? Freedom of Speech, right?? If some entitled posters are perfectly fine with their OWN offensive posts, then we ALL can, right? Alex is proving a POINT when he posts this stuff. A taste of the same nasty medicine. Being offended is exactly how we feel when political HATE is constantly posted. Again, HYPOCRITE??

    • ThG

      no one here is interested in your gay sex life

      can you say gay these days ? the fucked up cancel culture has played on so many traditional words, no one knows what to say anymore. it’s all fucked up, and they fucked it up on purpose.

      • JB

        No one here is interested in your political shit! Like you have said, if you don’t like what is posted ignor it.

        • TS

          JB, you triggered him. As soon as anyone challenges the CRAP , he literally activates the 1000 word click and paste button, and the GARBAGE ensues. LOTS OF IT. I somehow find it reassuring that the Nutbag is an equal oopportunity offender, so I don’t take it as personally as I could, since he has some pretty crude names for me. Hang in there, JB.

          • JB

            Oh I’m fine TS. It’s just words. I have learned over the years, that those that are scared talk the most. They just spew out shit to cover up their fear.

        • ThG

          only left wing idiots aren’t interest in my posts, they can’t handle the truth, I never said anything about his first amendment rights to post shit.

          • TS

            You’re right. You didn’t mention that precious Freedom.of Speech that you always default to when YOU post garbage.

    too many feeble minded people buy whatever Tripe the main , lame stream , media puts out there. Like Trump said to drink bleach, when he said no such thing. He said maybe medical biotechs big pharm could come up with something like inhalant disinfectant. And everyone jumped on bleach, completely ignoring what he really meant which was something like menthol. Which is a disinfectant in Vic’s Vapor rub.

    Trump and GOP were right about a lot of things, now this comes out. About how media duped a lot of liberal left wing tards, who believe just about anything the fake news puts out there.

    Five time media mislead public on genocide, creepy, jihad joe’s family business. If the media are sycophants of dem party. I don’t know what is.

    When the news of the Hunter Biden laptop broke in 2020, it was originally dismissed as Russian disinformation. Now, it has been entered as official, legitimate evidence in court in Hunter’s federal gun crime trial.

    Here are five of the most shocking instances where the laptop was dismissed as illegitimate.

    Politico reports on letter from intel officials who claimed laptop was Russian disinformation
    Soon after the Hunter Biden story was published by the New York Post on Oct. 14, 2020, media outlets were quick to suggest that the laptop in question was part of a complex operation by Russia to impact the U.S. Presidential Election.

    The narrative by the media stemmed in part from an open letter penned by 51 former intelligence officials, who claimed that the laptop had “all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.”


    The letter was first reported and circulated by Politico, which ran the headline “Hunter Biden story is Russian disinfo, dozens of former intel officials say.” U.S. intelligence officials suggested that the emails on the laptop may have been hacked and altered by the Kremlin to incriminate Hunter.

    Among the signatories were former Director of National Intelligence-turned-CNN analyst James Clapper, former CIA Director-turned-MSNBC analyst John Brennan and former CIA chief of staff-turned-MSNBC analyst Jeremy Bash. Clapper later distanced himself from the letter.

    Politico and the former intelligence officials who signed the letter are under renewed scrutiny after the laptop was formerly entered into evidence this week and confirmed legitimate by the FBI as part of Hunter’s federal gun crime trial.

    When asked for comment, Politico stressed that its article made clear that claims of potential Russian interference were the opinions of the former intelligence officials, not the outlet itself.

    Twitter uses Big Tech might to block Hunter Biden story and punish New York Post
    When the New York Post’s bombshell report was first published with weeks to go before the 2020 election, Twitter was quick to limit or block sharing of the story in an unprecedented display of coordination. Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has also admitted the social media platform was wrong to intervene in the Hunter Biden story.

    Twitter, which was renamed X after Elon Musk bought it years later, went to unprecedented lengths to prevent the Post’s story from being shared, claiming that it stemmed from “hacked material,” which was false.

    The tech giant barred anyone from tweeting out the articles or sharing them privately through direct message. Twitter even locked the Post’s account and told the outlet it could only be unlocked if it deleted its tweets promoting its reporting. The Post refused and eventually regained access to its account.

    Vijaya Gadde, who was terminated from Twitter after Elon Musk acquired the platform, told a congressional committee in February 2023 that she ultimately approved the decision to block The Post’s report about Hunter’s laptop and its contents, but said the move should have been reversed quicker.

    ’60 Minutes’ insists laptop cannot be verified during Trump interview
    In one of the most memorable media conversations regarding the story, Trump appeared on CBS’ “60 Minutes” shortly after the thread emerged and called the laptop “one of the biggest scandals” he had ever seen. But interviewer Lesley Stahl insisted there was no way to conclude the laptop or its contents were real.


    “Excuse me, they found the laptop. Lesley. Listen,” Trump said, as Stahl repeatedly interjected that the laptop could not be verified.

    “What can’t be verified?” Trump asked.

    “The laptop!” Stahl exclaimed.

    “Why do you say that?” Trump responded, before further arguing the laptop was legitimate.

    Stahl also rebuked Trump’s suggestion that Hunter was embroiled in a “scandal.”

    Stahl’s employer, CBS News, confirmed in 2022 via its own forensic investigation that the laptop and its contents were legitimate. The admission prompted many Trump allies to vilify Stahl, and Hunter Biden’s trial has reignited criticism of the veteran journalist.

    NPR calls laptop story a ‘distraction’ and says it doesn’t want to ‘waste’ readers’ time
    On the morning of the second presidential debate between then-candidate Joe Biden and then-President Trump, NPR, which had up until then ignored the scandal surrounding Hunter’s laptop, offered a quote explaining its editorial standard.

    “We don’t want to waste our time on stories that are not really stories, and we don’t want to waste the listeners’ and readers’ time on stories that are just pure distractions. And quite frankly, that’s where we ended up, this was … a politically driven event and we decided to treat it that way,” NPR managing editor Terence Samuel said.

    The comment came in response to an NPR radio listener who could not understand why the story had been ignored.

    NPR would later go on to suggest that the laptop was “discredited by U.S. intelligence and independent investigations by news organizations.”

    Joe Biden dismisses son’s laptop during debate against Trump
    During the final 2020 presidential debate against Trump, Biden said the laptop was a “bunch of garbage” that “nobody believes.”

    “There are 50 former national intelligence folks who said that what he’s accusing me of is a Russian plant,” the elder Biden said of the laptop at the time.

    His comments received no pushback from the debate moderator.

    The White House had previously been warned by U.S. intelligence agencies prior to the laptop that Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s personal lawyer at the time, was the target of a Russian intelligence operation to feed false information to the then-president. Giuliani had the laptop hard drive in his possession before it was handed over to the New York Post.

    Contemporaneous and current Biden aides Kate Bedingfield, Andrew Bates and Neera Tanden also pushed the claims of Russian disinformation based on the letter from intelligence officials.

    “Hunter Biden story is Russian disinfo, dozens of former intel officials say,” Jen Psaki, who later served as White House press secretary, wrote in October 2020, which was retweeted by now-Domestic Policy Council director Susan Rice.

    After President Biden took office, several news organizations, including CNN, MSNBC, NBC News, CBS News, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Politico and NPR verified the laptop’s legitimacy to some degree.

      Correctomundo. Humpty Trumpty did NOT advise people to drink beach. In his mose DOCTORLY VOICE, HE SUGGESTED INJECTING IT!! And, after he SILENCED the ACTUAL EXPERTS, HE COUKD SPREAD ANY DANGEROUS SHIT HE WANTED TO! NO ONE WAS ABLE TO CHALLENGE HIM, AS HE EXCLAIMED THAT COVID WOULD JUST D-I-S-A–P-P-E-A-R! What a dangerous POS that man is, as he PRETENDS to know what he’s talking about!

        You DO understand that HUNTER is not POTUS?? JOE is
        . Curious, ALL the hoopla about a man who had a DRUG problem. He bought a gun. There are millions of GUNS in America today, thanks to the NRA and the REPUGNANTS allowing little or NO regulation, BTW. So, a man used drugs and got a gun. Wonder how many drug users have guns in America?? This man is NOT a politician, NOT a Con gressperson, NOT a POTUS.
        To contrast: Trump WAS a POTUS. He WAS the MASTERMIND behind the JAN 6 Attack. he IS the ex- POTUS who faces multiple Court cases and felonies across America.
        Let’s review: a former POTUS broke multiple laws, state and federal, related to his unlawful attempts to OVERTURN the 20 election, ending with the CO- CONSPIRATOR #1, TRUMP, planning, and Inciting jan 6..
        HUNTER Biden had a DRUG addiction. He bought a gun. He is but a MAN with drug problems, as MILLIONS of Anericans are. We ALL know a drug user. There are plenty of Americans addicted to drugs..
        Like oxy and other painkillers. Like mind- altering anti- depressants. Like medical ” speed” or mefical ” downers”. I don’t see people going after mom and pop for being addicts. Yet, the multiple crimes of Trump are insignificant, right?? NO BIG DEAL. ALLLLL POLITICIANS ARE CORRUPT, RIGHT?? THEY ALLLL CHEAT LIKE TRUMP, RIGHT??

      Tim, agreed. Though not a lockup. Stupidity, delusion and paranoia require intense intervention.

    Not that it will happen, but Leon Dive-Saitl would instantly improve the power play as they’d draw 2X the penalties and embellishment will never be called on him.
