To me I would take the eight year deal if I were Matthews. Why risk injury or depreciating play or whatever? Take 11.5 8yrs.

I think the risk of an injury that seriously jeopardizes his play is pretty low. I think he's betting on himself and making a super-cheap $57.5M over the next 5 years. His next contract could be $15M/yr.

That might've just been what Matthews wanted. That puts him at 27 when he is due another deal which will probably be a huge number at max-term.

Hopefully for his sake he stays healthy. Always a gamble.

If he gets a third shoulder injury I think it's time to start worrying. For the Leafs. Not me, at all

The Auston Matthews contract extension is done. Should be announced today. Five-year deal. The AAV I believe is somewhere between $11.5 million and $11.7 million..

Sorokin should be kicked out of his current league for being too good and sent right to the Isles.

Leafs did the same kinda deal with PB. These stupid contracts that protect players from a potential lockout are so ridiculous! Hope the league rips off NHLPA in the next CBA!

According to a tax treaty between Canada and the United States, as a U.S. resident Matthews’ massive signing bonuses ($54.5M) would be taxed at 15 per cent in Canada. His salary ($3.65M) would be taxed at 53.53 per cent.
