    This is a thread about Marner. If your dislike of Kadri is blinding you to that simple fact, that's a sign that your emotions are getting the better of you. Can you calm down? I guess we'll see.

    Anytime you want to discuss Marner, let us know. Cheers.

    Even very happily. I really hope Marner plays his entire career as a Maple Leaf. I can't remember there ever being a player who seemed to be as happy to be a Leaf as he is and I think it would just kill him to be traded. The thought of Mitch playing for another team just seems wrong.

    Good. We can get a good deal out of him.

    They should get the big 3 in a room together to negotiate. A small discount for the good of the team etc. and Marner will talk the other two into it.

    @Mugzy97 @DarkKnight , hey guys

    @Gary Nylund would like it known that this thread is about Marner and Marner exclusively. Offering an observation about Marleau is not allowed ..... I guess.

    He forgot to single you out but that’s ok ... it’s sort of his thing

    I'll have @DarkKnight and @Gary Nylund 's back almost every time. They are good posters. My posts actually had referenced Marner each time, so not sure why you're dragging me into this.

    BTW, Noah Hannifan does not look that good. And Arizona taking Strome. Ouch!

    Hanifin hasn't looked that great by all accounts, Strome is getting into bust terrority very soon. Mitch may well be the 2nd best player taken in that draft.

    I still think Hanifin becomes an impact dman for his team eventually. He's still got a ways to go defensively but offensively he's trending up. Always liked Hanifin but he definitely does not impact the game as much as Marner does. Strome might take a while to grow, who knows how high he can go though.

    Marner was the right choice and it seems like it'll be that way for quite a while.

    Pull away? That's still a better pace from Aho.

    Though I would expect that would have changed by the end of the year.

    a bit high risk high reward at times, but him and kadri are a great duo, even if he doesnt play with matthews long term, playing with kadri is still a solid option imo.

    If anything one can argue that Werenski and Provorov should have went ahead of Hanifin in a re-draft since they also play on defense. However it's also fair to say that after McDavid and Eichel, Marner was the 3rd best player selected in the 1st round from 2015.

    3rd best? Barzal currently has 69 points in 69 games as a rookie... Marner is great, happy with the selection, but it’s hard to ignore Barzal as the 3rd best selection from 2015.

    Since Marner has a year experience in the NHL that's why I have him ahead of Barzal.

    I firmly believe if Marner played on team like isles (**** D and offense first), marner would be PPG+ as well.

    Also it's really hard to produce with JVR/Bozak tandem.

    True, most will come to see Marner as the 2nd best from that draft., Barzal/Eichel can fight it out for 3rd best.

    I don't know about that. A sheltered role competing mostly against 3rd lines with two veteran linemates who have played together for years and are a lot better offensively than they are defensively ... from where I site this seems like a pretty good spot to put up points.

    I can't even keep track of how many tap-ins Marner has put on Bozak's and JVR's sticks that they haven't converted on. It is an absurd amount. Often it seems it is because they are not ready for it or cannot read his creativity and are too late on the chance. He should have a lot more points.

    The fact that marner is going to get 20+ goals and close to 70 points is just crazy. Didn't he have like 2 or 3 goals in his first 35 games. To go from being an afterthought for goalies in terms of goal scoring to now where he hs sniped pucks past goalies and gone to the right areas for goals is showcasing his growth as a player. He is finding balance between making skilled plays and dangling, as well as being able to use his shot and put pucks on net to get chances. Marner is a star, next tear he becomes a superstar.

    do you see how those 2 pass the puck? It's always blind pass. They both try to force the pass and center it randomly. 90% of the time it gets intercepted.
