Max Domi might just be sticking around in Toronto for a while longer. We've been hearing rumblings about his desire to stay with the Maple Leafs, and now it seems like we've got a clearer picture of what his next contract could look like.

Domi had a solid season with the Leafs, putting up 47 points in 80 games and adding another 4 points in 7 playoff games. Yet Domi's value extends beyond the stat sheet.
At 29 years old, Domi is the kind of player you want on your team come playoff time. He's not afraid to get physical, mix it up after the whistle, and get his hands dirty in those tough areas. He also has solid playmaking skills and can hold his own in the faceoff circle.
And let's not forget about the chemistry he's built with Auston Matthews on that top line. The Auston Matthews-Domi-Tyler Bertuzzi trio was lighting it up, proving to be one of the Leafs' most dynamic lines all season long.
Now, we all know about Max's dad, Tie Domi, who was a fan favorite during his time in Toronto. While Max might not have his dad's fighting prowess, he's still racking up the penalty minutes – he was 6th in the league this year with 118 PIMs.
If they can fit him in with a reasonable cap hit under $5 million, after he just made $3 million, Domi is within reach for the Leafs. If they can offload a hefty contract elsewhere, re-signing him becomes even more doable.
4.5M x 3years is what the potential contract would be.
So, what's next for Max and the Leafs? Well, finding the right balance in his new contract will be key. yet with both sides seemingly happy with how things have gone, it's looking like we'll see Domi back in blue and white next season. The big question now is, at what price and for how long?
