    As much as I love Marner, I'm not sure that's fair. JVR and Bozak are both pretty good offensive players so if they're having trouble getting used to Marner, there's no reason to think others would have done better.

    Again, I love Marner but he makes a TON of blind passes himself that look sweet when they work and I love the creativity but they also get picked off quite often.

    yea sure but for JVR and Bozak it's different. I don't how to explain it. Anyways, there is a reason why he started doing well ever since he got on the line with Kadri.

    Whereas JVR/Bozak's production has stayed the same (Evenstrength)

    Jvr and bozak do not have high hockey IQ
    Jvr is one dimensional power play specialist
    Bozak probably is higher than Jvr but still low

    Kadri is a smart hockey player same as Marleau
    Put marner on their line and and it’s no coincidence
    both go in a streak

    Watch marner live and you see a completely different side of him
    His anticipation and hockey sense is off the charts.

    He is only going to get better as he matures
    If they can get him a natural goal scorer it will be magical.

    No worries, I find it hard at times to explain JVR and Bozak myself. And Kadri/Marner >>> JVR/Bozak, no questions there.

    The Marner / Mackinnon combo at the worlds was magical.

    Maybe Mitch is responsible for MacKinnon's resurrection. He was having a crappy year til he played with Mitch.
