Insider Reveals Matthews' Next Contract



According to Howard Berger, the Leafs and Matthews discussed for a four-year contract valued at $52M.


"Again HEARING THE #Leafs AND AUSTON MATTHEWS have discussed a four-year, $52 million contract extension. But, no deal yet "

However, some issues are coming in the way of making it happen.


Friction Between Matthews and Treliving?



In his article, Berger wrote that there could be some tension between the Leafs and Matthews.

The player is looking for a record-breaking contract, but the Leafs are hesitant to commit, as Matthews never succeeded in the playoffs and wasn't always ready to up his game for the big moments.

If these frictions continue, the Leafs aren't successful in the playoffs once again, and Matthews' camp still won't budge, this could leave Treliving no choice but to look elsewhere.
