We’ve placed our bets on the date, AAV and term. Now it’s your turn.

In a (likely misguided) effort to make this season’s contract hell a little more fun, we decided to do a betting pool/prediction for Mitch Marner’s contract signing. The choices are simple: when, how much, how long?

Here are our guesses:

PPP writers guesses

Name Date Signed AAV Term Other
Name Date Signed AAV Term Other
Katya June 18, 2019 $9.75 million 3 years I think I'm under on the AAV
Brian June 14, 2019 $9.95 million 4 years Nylander is somehow blamed
Fulemin June 19, 2019 $9.3 million 3 years :(
Nafio June 28, 2019 $9.16 million 4 years
Species Three days after the League and NHLPA both agree not to opt out of the CBA $9.5597 million 7 years 14 team NMC beginning whichever year Seattle joins the league; contract signing will be broken over Instagram
Hardev July 1, 2019 $9.49 million 6 years? I hate this.
Arvind July 14, 2019 $8.91 million 3 years This is an overpay
Adam Sept, 28th, 2019 $7.5 million 2 years Signs in time to play in final exhibition game, giving anti-nylander people something else to masturbate to. Bets on himself, contract expires when he has arb. rights

Memo to self: never give these people an Other column to fill in.

Okay, now it’s your turn! You guess, and when the deal is finally signed, and we’ve picked ourselves up off of the floor, we’ll figure out who had the closest guess. That amazing prognosticator will be declared the winner.

We have some PPP stickers, and we might be persuaded to send them to the winner for a small annual fee of a few million due every July 1.

Have at it!
