It is now July 21st, and the Toronto Maple Leafs still haven't signed Auston Matthews to his Entry Level Contract. Naturally, there's been a bit of concern in Toronto about this fact, seeing as winning the lottery and drafting the kid from Scottsdale is the only supreme, unasterisked bright spot the fanbase has had in this generation of Leafs hockey.

Now, I think that title paints Matthews in a negative light that it shouldn't, but most newspaper titles aren't the decision of the author, so we'll pass on going after Kevin for it and jump straight into the content, which seems to add credence to the theory that we've all been speculating on.
