Former Boston Bruin, and Toronto Maple Leafs goalie Andrew Raycroft recently talked about Mitch Marner's future with the team. He said Marner's recent comments about the media might make things tough for him in Toronto.

"I said to a few people, when Marner went after the media about the ankle injury three weeks ago, 'he's done'.

I've been there, I've answered a question like that in that market and that guy is never coming back from that. I think were seeing some of that right now.

He can score goals and they can go on and win but he's not coming back from that comment. No one is going to forget it - everyone is always going to go back to it. Every game he doesn't get a point they'll go back to him having a bad attitude or whatever reason and when he scores they're going to say he should've done it cause he makes $10M a year.

It's unfortunate for Mitch. He certainly wasn't good the first two games. he was hard to find out there sometimes. That doesn't mean he can't get 3 assists tonight, he can't get 4 points in Game 4. He has that kind of talent, but just watching how the media has kind of switched on him and then doing this in the playoffs - this isn't going away even if he plays great the next little while."

Raycroft, who also played for the Leafs, thinks Marner's words could have a big impact on how people see him. He said Toronto media and fans don't forget easily.
Marner hasn't been doing well in the playoffs, and people are criticizing him even more. Raycroft thinks Marner needs to step up and show everyone he's still a great player.
