Agents waiting for Mitch Marner’s deal to set RFA market

The Score

It appears Mitch Marner's contract saga with the Toronto Maple Leafs could be the catalyst that finally gets this summer's star-studded group of restricted free agents moving.

Agents of other high-profile RFAs are waiting for Marner to sign first to set the market, a source told The Athletic's Joe Smith.

Marner is one of several young RFAs coming out of entry-level contracts this offseason, along with fellow stars Brayden Point, Mikko Rantanen Brock Boeser, Patrik Laine, and Matthew Tkachuk, among others.

Coming off a 94-point campaign, Marner could be in line to become the highest-paid member of this year's RFA class, but Toronto's salary cap constraints have prolonged the process. That said, the 22-year-old did state he wants to be with the club for training camp in September.
