Friedman Provides a Major Update Regarding Matthews' Contract Negotiations in Toronto

The Maple Leafs have many important things to do this summer. Now that the Dubas situation has been dealt with, one of the major issues is all the free agents they have on their roster.
And it's not only the players whose contracts expire this summer. They have to start thinking about next year too. Then, William Nylander and Auston Matthews will be as free as birds.
A major development has been reported about this issue.

Bad News in Toronto

During the second intermission in yesterday's game between the Panthers and the Hurricanes, Elliotte Friedman casually dropped a major piece of information about Matthews' contract negotiations.
"It doesn't appear likely that Auston Matthews will sign by July 1st."

This is huge. Why is it so important that the Leafs re-sign Matthews this year? Because on July 1st, his no-movement clause will start, and he'll have full control over any potential move involving him. Also, he'll be an unrestricted free agent after, meaning that the Leafs could see him walk out of Toronto with nothing in return.
Fans are starting to wonder if Matthews truly wants to stay in Toronto. Even if he mentioned that he wanted to stay with the Leafs in his post-season interview, nothing seems certain now.
Do you think Matthews will remain in Toronto after his contract expires?
