Elias Pettersson has been holding out on contract negotiations ever since he's been eligible for an extension. The way the market has been developing, we're starting to see why.

MAPLE LEAFS TO SIGN STAR WINGER TO MASSIVE EXTENSION?
William Nylander is bound to be the market's top free agent is he doesn't re-sign with the Leafs until then. Nylander is off to a booming start and currently leads the Leafs with 50 points through 35 games.
The talks have just picked up and according to the most recent leaked information the Leafs' number 88 is about to sign the biggest contract in this team's history as he's looking at a deal worth $90M over the next 8 years.
A DEAL THAT WILL GIVE THE CANUCKS HEADACHES?
Currently in need of comparable for Elias Pettersson's next deal, Nylander's isn't going to help the Canucks' case. It's a known fact that the price for centermen runs higher then wingers, when you add the fact he's just as productive offensively and he excels in the defensive zone and the penalty kill, it sets the bar extremely high for Pettersson.
If Nylander is looking at an $11.25M cap hit, how much is Pettersson looking at?
The Swede slowed down a bit and now shows 45 points through his first 37 game, but you should expect him to up the pace in 2024.
