Auston Matthews recently signed a four year contract extension with the Toronto Maple Leafs. The deal came with a lot of social media buzz. Some of this buzz was generated around a former General Manager's prediction of Auston Matthews' future in Toronto.

Matthews Extension Finally Gets Done



Last week Auston Matthews signed his four-year extension with an AAV of $13,250,000. With the extension came a Matthews press conference where he admitted how excited he was to stay in Toronto.




Since the extension has gotten done fans and media alike have been reacting to the news. Most in Toronto are ecstatic that their star player is returning for four more years.


Burke Proven Wrong



As a result of the Auston Matthews extension, former NHL General Manager Brian Burke has been proven wrong. In an interview five years ago Burke said he would bet a sizeable amount of money that Matthews would leave Toronto.

Once Matthews re-signed a Maple Leafs fan took it upon themselves to make an edit around this topic. The video goes from Burke talking about how he'd bet Matthews will leave to Auston Matthews discussing how much he loves Toronto and how he wouldn't want to play anywhere else. During this audio, Auston Matthews' highlights so far as a leaf are played


Now that Matthews has re-signed the discussion moves down the road another four seasons. For now Auston Matthews is a Maple Leaf and will be working towards bringing a Stanley Cup to the city of Toronto.
